Rated 5 out of 5 by coffeeman5205 Best reels for under $1000 I went threw a lot of reels in the trash trying to find the best. I fish for bottom fish and top fish and wanted a reel that worked well for both. I destroyed 4 penn reels in 5 short trips they where 320I the poorest quality reels on the market. Then I went to Shimano speed masters which worked very well for top water but due to week drag could not hold up to AJ's and Grouper. Then a friend suggested the Saltist 6000. This reel is the strongest smoothest reel I have put in my hands for under a $1000.00. I feel you would have to buy the Shimano Stella to come close. I have caught Cobia 50 lbs, Grouper 18-20 lbs, AJ 40-50 lbs, Blacktip sharks up to 150 lbs. You will be happy if you buy these. I also have the 4000 model I uses for flounder and bonita.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve1 Great Reel One of the better saltwater reels around. Built strong with a great drag. I like the no reverse at all on this reel. It comes in several sizes for larger fish. I don't think a person could ever use all the drag that this reel has. It has performed just great. June 26, 2011

Rated 4 out of 5 by FISHUNT7 TOUGH REEL I have caught several medium sized fish on this reel and one huge fish. I have landed Red Snapper and AJ's from 10 to 50 lbs and it has performed flawlessly. I fought a shark that was in the 400-450 lb range and it still performed well. I know a shark does not make the runs like a big AJ or Wahoo but it can sure put a reel through the tests. The reel is smooth and has never gave me a jerky feeling like the drag on a lower quality reel will. I put it right in line with the Shimano Saragosa that I own. My only complaint about the reel is the handle. It is not the best reel to use for jigging because of the way they attach the ball that goes in your hand to the arm of the handle. There is a plate on the side that can wear on the palm of your hand if you do a lot of jigging. August 22, 2010
