  1. Hello Folks, I recently purchased a "Black Hole Striped Bass Special Rod (10', 1-6 oz) for use in the Cape Cod Canal---as a do everything 1 rod. I've used the rod 2x so far and can say this has been a great all around rod for both throwing plugs and jigs---threw SPs (1.5 oz) and Jigs up to 4.3oz no problems at all. Now looking for a new reel to match up with this rod (currently using a Diawa BG 4500 black/gold). I've been a looong time Shimano guy, so looking closely at the Shimano Saragossa 8000, but to tell you the truth the Diawa BG has been a shocker as to performance, quality, and price. So now I'm torn between Diawa and Shimano---these are the two reels: 1.2021 Diawa BG MQ 8000, $250 (22 oz, 340 yards 40 braid, speed is about 43 inches per crank); or 2. 2021 Shimano Saragosa SW 8000 $279 and very close specifications to the Diawa. This Rod/Reel set up will be used 100% at the Cape Cod Canal tossing all the usual canal jigs like Al Gag paddle tails, Savage Sandeels,....etc., ranging 2--5oz mostly and plugs like Stick Shads, Pencil Poppers, Magic Swimmers....etc ranging 2--5oz mostly (same weight as jigs). The question: which is this the "best" reel for the job requirements?? I am very concerned about the Shimano Saragossa "WOBBLE" that I've read about--although I do not understand it--nor can even believe a company like Shimano would ever make anything that wobbles....I've heard/read lots of complaints though so maybe its true?? Thanks in advance for any advice, opinions...etc. Just trying to get it right the first time. -Rob
