Sustain 8000FA or Saragosa 8000F

you may want to post this thread over on the Main Forum, you'll certainly get more replies there.  My 2cents-


The Sustain is only made up to the 5000 size, would really only balance on a 8-9' rod, no longer, and only one that has a light wrapped style handle.  Beautiful, awesome reel, but mainly meant to use on smaller rods.


The Saragosa is a tank compared to the Sustain.  The Sustain 5000 weighs around 11oz, the Saragosa nearly twice that.  But that is the nature of the Saragosa - it was built to be a beefy, hard knocks saltwater reel.  It was created to fill the gap between the Spheros and Stella, and has done so nicely.  Think of the Saragosa as a high performance reel dressed in football pads.
