Best dollar for dollar

This is the best dollar for dollar reel on the market.
The reel feels light but strong, and the drag works flawlessly. Paired a 2500 with a 6'6" St Croix Eyecon for jigging and it balances perfectly.

I've been waiting for this to get to the stores and yesterday I got a chance to go by my local shop. I will NOT be buying the NEW Saros. I have last year's model and I love it. So I really wanted to get another one for a bigger rod. Can't do it. Every time I turn the handle I get knuckle bang from the bail. This is a real shame since it looks like it was a really great reel otherwise. Guy at the counter said other patrons had said the same thing. Wish I could find a place to get last year's model.

Received the 3000FA as a gift and love it.
The bail and drag system are remarkable.
The smoothness of the reel is as good as it gets.
Love the line capacity. I have caught 20 lbs. (plus) redfish in current with this reel and have had 0 problems.
Get you one.
