New Reel for Salt Water
I just bought this reel and so far I have not used it yet, I am saving it for Vaca.
I have noticed that the handle is not to my likeing, would rather it not bend at joint.

I have 3 of these reels. A 4000, 8000, and a 10000. Im on a tight budget and wanted a good surf reel and wanted to stick with shimano because they're the best. These reels are smooth even though they only have 1 ball bearing. I've had waves splash on these reels and i just rinse them off with freshwater and they keep on running. No need to spend the money on a stradic or a sustain. The only thing negative i can say is that i wish these reels had at least 2 to 3 ball bearings and a rubber handle knob. But for the money still very nice reels

I bought this reel(6000) primarily for fishing for small tarpon, around 20-30 pounds, maybe an occasional 50 lb tarpon. I spooled it up with 20 lb power pro and matched it with a Shimano Saguaro rod. After multiple tarpon, I can say it is a great reel. It handles fish with no problems at all, and it's Shimano smooth. For the price, it is definitely an outstanding reel and I would recommend it to anyone.

Ijust bought a Socorro 8000F and I plan to use it for saltwater fishing but I don't see any problem in using it for Bass fishing depending on line weight you use. I will let you know when I take it to the lake for Bass fishing.
