Very interesting memberename you have. What's the genesis of it? 

Stared at my computer blankly for 5 minutes before it popped in my head.  NOT a play on domestic violence! A play on the words Slug-go and Popper and Hooking into a big ol' striped gal

I have the 4000 LT and absolutely love it. Rock solid and smooth as better. Have even submerged multiple times while light tackle casting in surf waist high followed by good fresh water spray downs and hasn’t missed a beat. I’m going to switch it over to a true back bay Striper setup in the coming month for 3/4 to 2oz lures and plugs with 30lb Jbraid. Any reccomendations for rods? Was looking to go 8+ft in length and a 1 piece. 

I do the same sort of fishing with my 4000 LT, and I have used it on 6 foot rods up to a 11 foot airwave elite and my favorite is the 8'6" distance model in the trophy II tsunami line. 1/2 oz to 1 1/2 oz and strong enough for the drag pressure the reel can give.

It's a 2 piece, however. Fires 2oz topwater plugs no sweat. 20lb braid is usually what I run, yo zuri in this picture.

Anyone currently fishing the 4000? I'm strongly considering picking one up for my 8'.

I own two of the 3000 models and I absolutely love them! They are light, smooth, and like the older/blue Saltist a damn durable reel. My only gripe is that Daiwa clearly just downsized the aluminum hardbodyz frame from the original Saltist (note ridged back) and slapped it on the Back Bay “LT” instead of incorporating the lighter yet stronger Zaion carbon frame that defines the LT lineup and is evident in the fact that a similarly sized (and priced) Tatula 4000 LT is not only 3 ounces lighter but also has an additional 11lbs of drag (granted it isn’t magsealed).
 

With that being said the difference in weight and drag wasn’t enough to stop me from picking a 4000 model from a store on eBay that has a sale going for the them, $150! Also saw a few Daiwa Coastal SV TW reels for on sale for ~$170 if anyone has been tempted to pick up one up but hesitated at the $250 sticker price.
