Rated 5 out of 5 by Backcountryslam I have 3 of these
I have three of the 2500's for over a year now. I fish for red and snook at least once a month and catch plenty of big fish. Never had a problem with these reels. I also have a stratic and don't see a difference.

I bought a 3000 Saros based on the specs and the recommendation of the guy at the reel counter. It was smooth but when reeling under tension , it made a terrible whirring noise. I returned it and upgraded to the FJ Stradic. No noise and a little smoother for about 40$ more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joeyb55 horrible design
After falling in love with the feel of this reel while shopping for the stradic fj and ci4+ I purchased it. I should have read a few more reviews. Upon pairing it with multiple rods it was obvious that the angle this reel rests on is awful. My knuckles get destroyed. Didnt even get line on it and knew I had to return it. I went with the abu garcia revo sx and am glad I did. Much lighter and comparable to the $200+ reels I was looking at for only $10 more than the saros. I cant tell you how upset I am that this reel is not comfortable because it was very smooth and beautiful to the eye as well. Do not buy this unless you hold your rod at the butt and not near the bail for leverage.

Bought the 4000 yesterday and paired it with a Shimano Compre 7'6 medium with 30 lb spider wire braid .3rd cast hooked a 39 in bull Red and got in the chest with no problem at all . I have tried just about every brand reel out there , and this setup beats them hands down - NOT EVEN CLOSE ! Don't waist your time on any other brand . GO SHIMANO AND YOU WILL BE COMPLETELY SATISFIED .
