So I just got the Saltx, came yesterday...  Pretty cool reel.  Couple of things I noticed just in case anyone was wondering... 

 

1. The size is just about the same as my Ultegra 5500

 

2. The reel seat extends out further than my 5500.  So guys with big hands like me don’t need to worry about the bail hitting your knuckles.

 

3. The bail I huge.  Meaning the diameter of the material is really substantial.

 

4. It’s really light weight.

 

5. Compared to a VS it’s much easier to crank the handle right out if the box.

 

6. The drag is ridiculous.  50 lbs for a fairy small reel is insane.

 

7. I got sand all over it, no problem.

 

8. Mike from Causeway B and T Long Island said they are coming in Black soon

What size rod do you have the 6000 paired with?

I use two but the one in the pic is a Black Hole North East Special.  Butt is cut about 6” so it’s now 11’ 6”.  3/4 to 4 oz
