The Saragosa SW has built an incredible reputation for value, performance and reliability since its launch. This mid-priced workhorse takes many of Shimano’s top features and makes them available to a wide range of serious and casual saltwater game anglers.
If Stella SW or Twin Power SW reels are out of your price range, the Saragossa is the next best thing. Or perhaps you want a less expensive back-up, or a different sized reel to give you options. Whatever your motivation, Saragossa is an excellent choice and contains a lot of the technology found it its more expensive brothers. Available in a wide range of sizes, from compact 5000 to a massive 25000 sizes, there’s certainly a model that’s going to be right for your style of fishing, and with Shimano’s build quality and advanced technology, a new Saragossa is going to give you years of service and enjoyment.
The reason Saragosa is so advanced, but relatively affordable, is one of evolution. As Shimano develops ever more advanced technology for its high-end models like Stella, slightly older technology gets passed down. Have a look at the Saragosa features and you’ll be more than impressed, in fact it’s more advanced than the previous version of the Stella! A full range of HAGANE technology, InfinityDrive for increased torque, X-Protect (IPX8) for the best saltwater protection, the list is almost endless. The result is a reel that you’ll not only learn to trust, it’s a reel that you’ll be proud to use in any situation or company.
“I have used various models from the Saragosa range for several years, fishing at destinations ranging from the frigid waters north of the Arctic Circle, to the steaming tropics of equatorial latitudes. With them I have fished a wide variety of different methods using both lures and baits, to catch many different species including some of the hardest fighting fish that swim. Always these reels have performed impeccably, they really are a joy to use.” – Dave Lewis (Shimano Ambassador)
