Rated 4 out of 5 by aj86 good value Its great for the price. No play at all with the antireverse which is the first thing i look for. Salt beats this reel up. They never last long but for $70 its a good deal so have wd40 ready. I would like a little more line capacity. January 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hooksetm Great solid reel For the money, this is a smooth yet rugged reel. Also looks expensive. October 15, 2012

Details:I mainly fish freshwater (for bass), but I'm looking for a new reel that will work well for both salt and freshwater
A: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.
A:Hi. Yes this reel will be perfect for freshwater. Go with the model 4000. The other bigger models are for saltwater only. These reels all have water proof drags so it is perfect for the salt as well
A:I would say that it is definitely usable in freshwater, but make sure the rod you are using isn't bulky like some saltwater rods, because for bass you need to cast often.
A:Great for the salt. It would work for fresh, but the size and weight might be a bit much for that application.
A:It depends on the size of the reel. I have the models 4000, 8000, and 10000. I use 12 lb test on the 4000, 20 lb test on the 8000, and 25lb test on the 10000.
A:12lb(500yds) 16lb(300yds) 20lb(220yds) I
