Rated 2 out of 5 by jsw123 Be Cautious STT5000H was to replace my Daiwa reel that my dad bought about 35 years ago mainly for saltwater jetty fishing. Overall it's a very nice reel, except for one major flaw that you may want to consider before purchasing this reel. The bail on Daiwa Saltist are solidered together and the solder on this reel just pops out. Daiwa replaced the first one free of charge, but last year another solder on the bail came loose. Contacted Daiwa and they wanted approximately $47 to replace the bail. My friend bought STT6500H and within a couple years, his needed replacing as well. He bought a Shimano Stella, but I am not sure whether I can afford a Stella. I am debating whether to purchase a Shimano spinning reel instead and get rid of this reel because it's matter of time before the solder comes loose. Google it and you will find others with the same problems. April 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by saltydog666 used this reel on washington beaches sand and salt this reel stood up to rough treatment and sand and salt water, for two stright days and it worked great with only a little bit of cleaning December 29, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Catchum Very good purchase I bought the reel to put on a 12.5 foot surf rod (not the advertised purpose). As the reel retrieves over 50 inches of line per revolution of the handle is what I wanted. As the bail does not automaticly close it took a ;little getting used to but not that much of a problem. I fished it every day for a week and it preformed very well, in fact in intend to replace another reel with an additional one of these May 21, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Dabro Saltist 5000H Used on tuna, A J's so far, and has done a fantastic job, very smooth in all aspects. I wanted a jigging set up, got this reel and a recommended "jigging" ugly stick 50-100#,awesome rod too. BUT,,,the main gear shaft that the handle slides into broke, BUT, did not effect the performance at all, it just fell out when I took handle off to swap sides. Could be a fluke, I took it back to Bass Pro and they replaced it with no problems and no questions, they let me upgrade to the 6500H," I paid the diff". FYI,,5000H, 6000H, 6500H,,all the same reel,,different spool, line capacity. I still feel this reel kicks butt April 18, 2012
