All Shimano fans are well aware of the pedigree of the Shimano Stella range. We’re also aware of their top end, aspirational price point, which is only accessible to a smaller number of anglers. The Shimano Saragosa gives you access to the same larger class of fish, with all the performance at a fraction of the price of Stella.
The Saragosa cuts down on the number of bearings relative to the Stella, but without sacrificing the smooth crank and huge inclusions list. The Shimano Saragosa reel boasts bucket loads of Shimano’s most unique spin reel technologies, making the Saragosa reel a formidable powerhouse designed to tackle the oceans biggest.
Shimano Saragosa Reels are big yet refined. Their light weights defy their designated purpose of big fish angling. A Shimano Saragosa design is for fishing on the beach, rocks, reefs, nearshore and out past the shelf in the blue water.
The 5000 model, the smallest in the range, will make an excellent reel for those who tackle a larger class of fish in the rivers and estuaries, such as mulloway or barra. The Saragosa 5000 also makes for a versatile go-to allrounder that could be useful just about everywhere.
While crank smoothness, strength and rigidity are givens, it is the generous spool capacities and max drag that provides access to our large predatory fish. The smaller models cover Aussie salmon, tailor, bonito, barra, trevally and more whereas the big models like the 20000 or 25000 pit you against tuna, kingfish, GT’s, mackerel, sailfish, marlin and sharks.
The fishing tackle shop has Shimano Saragosa reels for sale now. The price is accessible, and the fishing possibilities are endless.
For those looking for a highly tuned, beautifully refined workhorse, that will endure countless sessions against the oceans biggest fish, we strongly advise you consider Shimano Saragosa reels.

Shimano Saragosa SW Reel Buying Guide
This broad range of saltwater spinning reels gives you six models from which to choose. The drag power of the series starts at 10kg and climbs to a maximum of 20kg, giving you an enticing spread of options. Below we will detail a little more on each model for sale to assist you in making the appropriate purchase decision for your fishing circumstance.
Saragosa 5000 SW - is a super durable saltwater reel that will handle hard fighting fish like snapper, rock blackfish, jewfish, kingfish, mackerel, barramundi, fingermark, mangrove jack, cod, etcetera.
The 5000 can be fished from the shore or the boat and matches to fishing rods ranging in length from 1.5m (jigging rods) up to 3.5m (surf/ rock rods) depending on your fishing situation.
Saragosa 6000 SW - essentially is not too much larger than the 5000 and sports all the same purpose. You will get a better line capacity or have the ability to fish slightly heavier line class. The 6000 is perfect for many 10-12ft beach rods, ideally appraised near a 10kg rating.
An 8-10ft spin stick for rock fishing will also match well with the 6000SW.
On the offshore saltwater boat scene, It’s a reel size which perfectly suits reef fishing for snapper and other reef dwellers; It’s ideal for sport fishing for certain species of tuna, mackerel and mahi-mahi. To finish, its a perfect size for offshore jigging. The 6000 SW will pair with a boat or jigging rod up to approximately 1.5 metres in length.
Saragosa 8000 SW - moves from a medium class of reel into a large class. Like all others in the series, the 8000 performs brilliantly for applications such as beach fishing on 10-12ft rods rated 8-10kg+, rock fishing on 8-10ft rods rated 8kg+, or for offshore boat fishing, ideally on rods rated anywhere up to 24kg.
Saragosa 10000 SW - Are identical to the 8000, they share the same body frame but has a deeper spool and a lower gear ratio which delivers extra cranking power. Like the 8000, the Saragosa 10000 SW is brilliant for beach, rock and offshore boat fishing but has a better capacity and drag authority for stopping beach jew, sharks, GT, a larger class of tuna and other spots fish that deliver supreme power. The 10000 SW is our best selling size in the entire range due to its general-purpose size.
Saragosa 20000 SW - is the first extra large-sized reel in the series. It is designed to hold decent line capacities or can utilise heftier line classes. Heart-stopping 20kg max drag has you pitted against the oceans toughest fish whether you fish offshore with rods rated anywhere from 15-37kg, from the beach or rocks with 10-12ft, 15-24kg appraised rock/surf rods.
The 20,000 SW is also very popular among anglers that chase GT and other northern reef species on popper rods. The 20,000 can fish heavy, making it an excellent choice for line classes of 80lb to contest such ocean-dwelling beasts.
Saragosa 25000 SW - is the largest size in the SW series. It sports all the possibilities and capabilities of the 20,000 with the added line capacity benefit.
Two critical features, X-shield and X-protect both work together, preventing corrosive damage to the Saragosa SW reels. X-protect is water repelling technology. While the reels are not fully waterproof, these two features assist in keeping 12 crucial areas of the mechanisms performing longer, repelling water, preventing corrosion and increasing the longevity of your fishing reel.
AR-C spool design helps to improve the castability of the reel. Fishing line peels off the spool in loops that are smaller dramatically decreasing friction and refining your cast distance.
The benefit of the one-piece bail wire means that there is no opportunity for the line to catch as the bail closes and as the fishing line slides onto the roller.
The Shimano Saragosa reels get you out amongst the oceans biggest at an accessible price point. The feature list is second to none in its class and delivers the refined performance expected of much pricier spin reels. Place your order online with the Fishing Tackle Shop and have your Shimano Saragosa delivered ready for your next fishing adventure.
