Wondering if anyone has experience with the new saltist spining reel in 4500 or 5000 size? I really like the idea they have minimal moving parts and "only have what you need so less to go wrong". Is this statement true?
Only asking as I have beaten down an american seller on ebay from $199 to $149 (£99) with free shipping to uk. He is now waiting for an email back from me to say yay or nay.

I'm now thinking saragossa or rarenium?
They are quite different reels, the Saragosa would be more like the Saltist, a slightly heavier workhorse of a reel where as the Rarenium looks to be a much lighter and refined reel. From what I can remember my 4000 sized Saragosa weighs about 370g whereas I think the same sized Rarenium weighs about 260g, so I guess it depends what you're after really.

Just for info, a 4000 size Daiwa is a much bigger reel than a 4000 Shimano. A 4000 Daiwa is a bit on the large size for general plugging, more like a boat jigging or very heavy plugging reel. A 4000 size Shimano is roughly equivalent to a 3000 size Daiwa and better suited to 'normal' bass lure fishing.
