  1. Gosa has ipx8 rating not 9
  2. I'm having trouble deciding between these two. The Saragosa is tried and true and Scoob said in his video (slammer 3 vs gosa) that he would still pick the gosa for surf fishing over the slammer 3 but I couldn't really understand why after he gave so much praise to the slammer 3. Now with the slammer 4 dx coming I just can't decide. I don't care which side your on or if your a fanboy I still want to hear opinions.
  3. Thanks! I should be able to make this work since I don’t think getting splashed by waves really counts as dunking. Maybe the occasional dunk if I get caught off guard or lose my balance in the surf.
  4. What is VS, ZB and 704z?
  5. It seems like the only differences now between these two is the drag and maybe the gear material or extra bearings? I can't see why anyone would buy the Saragossa now unless they need that extra stopping power? Is the Saragosa sealed better somehow? I'm in the market for one of these and I trust y'alls opinion.
  6. I guess we are all guilty of not supporting him monetarily on patreon or something. I do value his content. If I would have known he was going to stop I probably would have donated.
  7. Reason I asked is because I do have a chance to buy a slammer 3 for under $200
  8. Why would you choose the slammer 3? Isn't the 4 supposed to be a lot better? I thought they improved the seals somewhere?
  9. Can anyone find whether or not the dx is lighter than the normal version? I know stainless might save a little weight but they added a bearing as well which adds weight so I'm not sure.
  10. I’m trying to decide between a teramar px 8’ xh spinning vs a lamiglas carbon surf 9’ m for all purpose surf casting jigs and spoons 1-3oz. Anyone have any input on which direction I should go? I’m guessing the teramar would be a lot lighter which is a big plus for me. (Shoulder issues)
  11. So does Daiwa or Shimano even make a fully sealed spinning reel? If so which ones? (Probably higher end I’m guessing) None of the reel descriptions ever say if they are fully sealed or not.
  12. Sorry I’m a newbie but when I say surf casting I mean standing in the water and casting and retrieving lures. For that reason I’m leaning toward the slammer series but if you all feel the saltist mq can handle taking a few dunks in the waves then id consider the Daiwa because overall I like Daiwa better and I think the Saltist looks way better than the slammer.
  13. I’d like to hear from the people who chose the saltist over the dx. Why? It’s not fully sealed which is my concern for surf casting.
  14. Also I watched scooby’s video from a few years ago where the slammer seemed much better than the saltist but I was wondering if that is still the case with the new Saltist that was released at icast.
  15. I will be buying one “vacation” reel as a do all surf reel for casting and some occasional live bait fishing from the beach. I don’t want to have to worry about waves splashing on it when I’m casting and reeling but I don’t plan on reeling underwater unless I end up fighting a fish while getting hammered by the surf. The new Saltist mq looks bufar the best but it seems like the best reel of the bunch is the slammer 4 dx. What do y’all think? I need help.
