Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel Bought 2 of the 6000s for striper fishing. They perform great. No problems, smooth drag and operation April 16, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Reel I bought this reel to use for inshore fishing as well as freshwater striper and bass fishing. It is well made and operates smoothly. After a few days of fishing with this reel I was so happy with it that I bought a second one. April 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great for the Money! Bought a 3000 for light inshore and lunker bass fishing. So far I have caught a few 2-3lb bass on it and its performed flawlessly. Even dunked it in salt by accident. Rinsed it with fresh water, sprayed some reel magic on it and it still works great! April 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great reel I brought this reel last year . Cast verry nice has smooth retrive . I lost it in the surf with my rod for half hr got it back packed with sand and water still cast n still reel in as well cleaned it up in soaked it over night in hot water . Re grease it still works like new buying a nother reel soon for an 8 ft rod to match up with it March 4, 2014

Casting 5000 or 6000?

Details: 
I want to cast large artificial baits for tarpon. I noticed that there's only a 1.6 ounce difference between the 5000 and 6000 so would it be worth it to get the 6000 for more line or just go for the 5000. I'd be using 30 lb power pro. I just want to know if a 6000 is just too big to cast a lot.

A: 
Use what you feel comfortable with. The larger reels will fatigue your hands faster due to its bulkiness. On the other hand if line capacity is a concern then definetly go with the 6000. Hand fatigue is nothing compared to loosing the fish of a life time due to line capacity limits.

A: 
go with the biggest spinning reel you can get so you have a large line capacity. go with the Biggest size reel you can get. Also, go with a better reel like the Penn Battle, Penn Spinfisher V, Diawa DF 100A, Fin-Nor Offshore, Diawa Saltist, Penn Torque, Accurate Fishing Platinum Twin Spin, Shimano Stella, Shimano Stratic, Shimano Saragosa, Diawa Saltiga, or the Diawa Saltiga Dogfight.

A: 
I am particular to using 17lb mono for inshore fishing. I use a shimano 4000 and have no issues with anything I have caught. The largest fish I caught inshore is a 32lb ray. Utilize your drag, save money and go with mono. The 15lb should be fine.

A: 
If your going with braid I'd go with 30 to 40 lbs u can go to 20 lbs as well if u want to . Remember braid is different from. Mono 20 = about 6 or 8 lbs mono 30 and 40 lb braid is close to about 10 to 15 lb mono . If you go low braid wich is more thinner u will deal with a lot of line twists and line knows when cast either into wind or light lures as well

A: 
go with the 8000 hands down... will hold 450 yrds of 65 lb braid that is what i have mine spooled with and it works great, mine is set up for shark fishing as well the only down side is only 25 lbs of drag for the reel but you will easily spend about 150-200 more for a reel with higher drag... its the best reel out there for the money

A: 
No I wouldn't use it your line will still slid on the main spool I hade that experience before u would have to twist the line on the spool to make it tight .. Best result put on 15 to 20 lb mon I'd put on a few yards just to cover up the neck then tie your brain on to the mono best thing when spooling bait put it in a bucket of water help with the line when packing it on and have a little pressure when spooling it on done want the Baird to be loose on the spool

A: 
50 lb braid = 20 lb test of mono if u want u can get more braid on your spool I'd would go to 40 lb braid witch is equal to 10 lb test . If unwant when spooling it put on 15 20 lbs of mono for backing just enough to cover the neck of the spool so line won't slip

It does hold 205 yds of 30 braid, so if you mean the PowerPro braided, 150 yds of 50# braided would be close.
