That is a beefstick. I would consider the 6500 with the 33lb drag. I have the Saltist, which is the Magsealed version. It's pretty amazing.

What are you targeting and what are you throwing?

The 4000 is a good do all size saltwater sized.

They are also coming out with the saltist back bay in a 4k. Which takes the ho hum/ meh saltist...and takes out the fancy bearings and give it a machined aluminum gear upgrade instead of the cast zinc.

I use a 4k saltiga for inshore nearshore stripers and bluefish using 30lb braid. Same size as a 5k 6k saragosa. Great for 7 to 10 medium duty rods.
