Shimano Saros F 4000 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am new to forum and new to fishing at 51. Looking for first rod & reel. I am looking at spinning reels first and would like to here what others think about the Shimano Saros F 4000. Thanks.

IMO a 4000 size spinning reel is too big.

Go with the 2500 or the 3000.

I have both a Saros 3000 and a Stradic 4000.  The 3000 is definitely a better size for bass fishing.  If you want to use it for larger species also the 4000 will work, but if you are fishing for bass only, you will enjoy fishing with the smaller reel more.   Whatever size you get, you will love the Saros!

Also, don't go too heavy on the line.  6-8 lb will be perfect on the 3000.   The lighter the line, the more bites you will get.

The 2500 series is the ticket for bass fishing.

I also agree with the 2500 size for Bass. I have a Stradic 2500 and it is PERFECT for bass.
