WTS: NIB Shimano Saragosa 6000SW & Exc. cond. Ultegra CI4+ 5500XSB

23 posts in this topic

I bought these at the end of last season from Tackle Direct.

 

Ultegra- $290 shipped:

 

I bought a Votex knob to replace the joke OEM knob on the Ultegra and used it once last winter, and three times this year.  It is indeed, the farthest- casting spinning reel I have ever used.  It was never dunked, but it did get splashed a lot 4 weeks ago.  I opened up the sideplate and did not see water intrusion.  

 

The main spool has 20# white Sufix 832, one has new, unfished / uncast green Sufix 30 or 40# Spectra, and the third spool remains unmolested.

 

There is one faint scratch on the reel stem from transport in my Rod Vault (5th pic).  Other than that, this super-lightweight carbon fiber hybrid reel could pass as new.  

 

Saragosa- $240 shipped: 

 

Spooled up with new unfished / uncast yellow 30# Spiderwire Stealth, I mounted it on a few rods and never got a chance to use it.

 

All reels come as shown with boxes, spool shims, and papers.  Why am I selling these?  Despite how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I decided they don't really fit my current fishing style.  However, because of how smooth, light, and sexy these are, I'll just as easily keep them rather than get low-balled like crazy :rav: .  Thanks for lookin'!

 

Buy 'em both for $515 shipped.

I'd like to offer $210 shipped for the Saragosa SW6000. Payment via Bank of America money order. You can keep the line. I figure it can't hurt to make an offer.

sorry for double post

Sorry, gonna hold out a little more or keep it at that price.  The knob upgrade and 2 full spools of braid alone adds another $85 to the $319 price of the reel.  Let's say if it was worth $400 with the knob and braid new, less 30% depreciation for using it 4 times, I'd sell it for $280 shipped- and that would include tracking and insurance.  I'd say that's the best deal I've seen for this model so far.

Do the power handle come with ball bearing

Good question.  I am not sure since I sent the handle assembly to Jason Yan at Jigging World and he drilled out the OEM knob and installed this one.  Either he swapped the BB out or it has an ultra slick bushing- it spins forever and sounds like a skateboard wheel at high RPMs.  Neither the Jigging World site nor its eBay site does not list a BB for the 39mm Votex knob.
