thats a bigun' ....Tuna ?

For me, the 14000 is a great addition to the line for one reason:  53" retrieve speed.  That high speed is absolutely critical for Roosters in Mexico.  Only other reels I know of that top 50" are the Stella 14000 and Daiwa BG 8000, but the BG weighs 30oz compared to the Gosa and Stella at 24oz.   (Daiwa Saltigas may top 50" but not sure.)

The good older Saltist and 2008 Stella 10k are also in this category. The Saltist reels will outcast all the reels on your list.

But I would be keen so see what you mean

Here is the video. Turn up the volume

and you can hear the noise. Truthfully, what you hear in the video is not too bad. It was worse earlier this morning when I was using it.

I'm on the SWE notification list, haven't gotten any email yet but I did pre-order a 6K from J&H and just got a shipping notice. I see they changed the availability date from Oct 1 to Nov 1, glad I already had my order in!

Been putting my 5k through it's paces 

From the shore, kayak and boat 

Been washed over in the surf, and in the kayak while beach launching, no problems so far, still smooth as the day I got it 

Very smooth drag and smooth under load

Tracking says my 6K will be here by my wife's birthday (Saturday). I hope it gets here sooner, I'm planning to fish Saturday morning. Wife won't be too happy if I fish Sat night too.
