I have the 3000. 3500, and 4000... very smooth operation and drag.. I smoked my 3500 trying to use it at the ditch.. the 4000 worked great there for light tackle apps.. 3500 wouldn't take the abuse although it had about 300 fish under it's belt.. many over 20#.. a ten pound blue in the ditch creamed it... anti-reverse failed a couple times and whacked my knuckles but good... was quite the fiasco.... landed the fish but it wasn't pretty.. :roll:

The Shimano Spheros 6000 and 8000 (depending on the rod size) has been gaining popularity for use in the surf. It has a waterprrof drag, metal body, and corrosion resitant bearings. I've used the 6000 this year and it has done a fine job, even when getting hit with lots of water in the surf.

Hooked up with some trout, but since then I aint been on tha watah. Too cold :( If I have to wear gloves and I cant feel the reel, then I'm pretty much done till the Spring lol.

Like they say one rod doesn't do it all. Soon you will be like us, you'll be able to open your own tackle shop

I use waders in the summertime for a few reasons .....since i go at night, they keep the bugs away from your legs. dont like to be wet all night, we usually go for about 6 hours. easier to handle a fish if you ask me. I have chest waders for the rough stuff but usually i'm wearing my hip waders. Hip waders are really comfortable, i've actually driven to my spot with them on, lol. no need to be wet all night with your shoes filling up with sand. this year i might actually go with a wetsuit and a Van Staal reel. maybe fish some really rough surf.

Excuse me for butting in on this one. Last year my fishing buddy says to me..... nyut it's the doldrums so lets try the kayak thing. O.K. in coming tide near the mouth of a river. Wind starts to push us out to sea. We move into the main channel where the waters swirling pretty good. Just as we start hooking up my kayak, his wifes, hits a dock pileing. In the friggin drink I go. Van Staal vs300 to the bottom, so cold I thought I was gonna die, not to mention the current. Long story short, We went back in the morning... 4am... low tide, god must have smiled on me, cause there it was in the mud. I rinsed it off and have had no problems with the reel! Bottom line is the price stinks, but if your heavy in to fishing.... no one makes a better reel.

Welcome to the site Eel....theres no such thing as "butting in" on this site my friend.

thank god you found that reel and thank god it was the Van Staal and not some un-waterproof reel. I too am going to by the Van Staal this season. screw the money, i'll definetly make that back in one season. The surf i fish can be kind of rough at times and i'm usually wet from head to toe on those days. This year i'm thinking of going with the full body wet suit, along with the VS, should get me into some deeper water and i wont have to worry about my reel getting wet.

Striper777......I use the Penn 9500ss series on my 15'.

Ditto EEl.

Welcome to the site. 8) Van stalls are nice. Is yours the original or the newer Van "Zebco" I know its the same reel as the original but different guys say different stuff about the service with Zebco. If and when I buy that reel, I would hope I dont have to worry about the service.


Striper 3 7's I use the Penn 9500 also on the 10 footers. 704Z on the others. And the latest is the smaller tica libra for pluggin. Havent got to try it out yet though. Im countin the days.
