Our Frigate saltwater spinning reel is a masterpiece of design, performance, and rock-solid durability. This versatile warrior is built on an all-aluminum frame, with a lightweight carbon fiber-reinforced composite rotor on the 3000–6000 models, and a rugged A360 aluminum rotor on 7000–8000 models. A specially-formulated, American-Made Ocean Silk lubricant has been applied to the interior to handle the rigors of saltwater fishing. The spool is forged and double-anodized, with a braid grip arbor to create traction and prevent slippage when tying directly to the spool with braided line. Carbon fiber and Teflon® drag stack slows battling game fish with a firm yet smooth pressure. Inside, you'll find an 8 bearing system that includes Powerlock instant anti reverse that imparts ultra-smooth and stable performance, and the stainless steel main shaft provides a rigid and durable core. We've designed the Frigate to be the toughest, smoothest saltwater reel you can find. When you use it, we think you'll agree.

by streek1975 One of the best I've bought.
I purchased the FG5000 model to pair with my 6'6" Offshore Angler Brawler Trophy Spinning Rod, that I purchased the same day. The FR5000 comes with a 4.9:1 gear ratio and a line retrieval of 34". Like a fine tuned car, the gear ratio and line retrieval are a perfect balance of torque and speed. I also like the fact the it has a built in rubber strip on the spool for attaching your line before spooling, which is much better than using black tape. Spooled it up with some 30lb Power Pro Super 8 Slick braid line and went fishing. Reeled in a 3.5 to 4lb Jack and a 5lb catfish without a problem. The Frigate FG5000 reeled in fast and smooth. For the price point it is well worth it. I thought I was using a much more expensive reel. I am thinking of buying another to replace my Penn Fierce.
