I'm having trouble deciding between these two. The Saragosa is tried and true and Scoob said in his video (slammer 3 vs gosa) that he would still pick the gosa for surf fishing over the slammer 3 but I couldn't really understand why after he gave so much praise to the slammer 3. Now with the slammer 4 dx coming I just can't decide. I don't care which side your on or if your a fanboy I still want to hear opinions.

In his comparison video, you can clearly see that the Gosa has a true rubber seal around the spool shaft whereas the Slammer III uses a metal labyrinth with a just hydrophobic coating…. not a true seal.  Until I see definitively how Penn has improved the sealing around the spool shaft, I’d have to give the nod to the Gosa.

Slammer IV supposedly had an additional rubber seal added analogous to the saragosa's pinion seal. 


I really hope that’s the case.  All I’ve read so far is that it has “improved” sealing at the pinion/spool shaft.  Waiting on confirmation of that once the reels are actually released and out in the wild…  fingers crossed!
