Default Sargus vs Sedona?

Hi all,

I have two reels, Penn Sargus 4000 and a Shimano Sedona 4000FD, but only want to keep one of them. Which would you keep and why?

Thanks,

J

Why do you ask others for opinions when it is you that ultimately decides which reel is more suitable to you base on a personal preference & usage.

Wow! So personable. :)

I've asked for opinions since I've never used either reel before and would like feedback from those who have. Of course I'll make the ultimate decision, but it's a fool who makes a decision based on absolutely nothing. Is that satisfactory?

I own a sargus now. I like it but I also only owned it a month. So I will have to get back to after this season, but so far so good...BUT IT IS MOSTLY METAL AND IS SOLID great bang for the buck.
I own a shimano (thunnus though) Built like a tank been dipped, dunked and droped. Still running strong besides the baitrunner option stuck on. But free fix from shimano.
ASK yourself this Blue pill or red pill..Your personal choice. Im sure you will love em both or either one.

I've had good experience with my Sargus. Smooth winding and well balanced. I haven't really beat on it yet, so I can't speak to its durability, but the price was very reasonable.

I appreciate the feedback - it was helpful.

I've decided to keep the Sargus to use for inshore fishing as I'm hoping the mostly metal components would withstand more abuse then the Sedona. I've given the Sedona to my 5-year old nephew to use for lake fishing.
