Salos Spinning Reel

Great service

First off, I had an issue putting on line and sent a message with a picture of the problem. Received a response really fast. These guys and a new reel spooled and ready to fish with sent out immediately. Customer service is way above anyone else's. As for the reel, I LOVE IT. I've caught some smaller fish and it works as advertised. Looking forward to warmer water and bigger fish to really test this reel.I have no doubts about it's performance. Highly recommended.

FFP Reel Service
Michael Thomas
Very easy process!

FFPs service department is very easy to use. You just pay for the service, print your shipping label and send! Your reel is returned in about a week and is 100% back to brand new!

Excellent Braid

Made casting very smooth. Was able to cast with great distance and accuracy.

Replacing all other brands with Florida Fishing Products Reels

My name is Bob Maindelle, owner of Holding the Line Guide Service. I hunt white bass year 'round in the reservoirs of Central Texas. I was first introduced to FFP while fishing with a guide near Gulf Breeze, Florida. I was impressed with how smooth the reel and the drag were. Then, I was blown away when I found out that the reel I was using had been used for three years, in salt water, with no repairs required. I got a set of six FFP reels for my boat and those six reels are now on the six rods to which I have my Bladed Hazy Eye Slabs tied. These will be the single most-used reels on my boat from November through March. The Bahia 1000's gear ratio moves about 24 inches of line per handle turn and that is just right for white bass, hybrid stripers, and any by-catch of drum or blue catfish that we might encounter. Love these reels! These 6 Bahias join the 12 Osprey CE 2500s already in use on my boat, for a total of 18 FFP reels now in service for my guide service. I'm slowly phasing out all other spinning reels with FFP reels.

Done well

Fished the Osprey (3000) for 2 seasons and now the Bahia for 1. I fish NJ bay and inshore stripers 3 to 4 times a week and fish hard. All topwater lures. I've done well with no issues and love the way both reels handle. Very smooth. I have 4 Diawa Ballistics that I've had for 6 seasons, but now are showing wear with the reverse and getting just a tad noisy. Love the FFP reels and price. I'll keep you posted on longevity.

Absolutely love the Bahia I have the 4000 and it more than handles any fish I get on the hook I landed a 45 inch black drum on it a couple weeks ago and never been more shocked to see a lightweight setup handle that big of fish truly amazing gear you guys put out.

Best gear out there. Never have problems with corrosion. Always smooth

Smooth- but poor distance casting compared to my shimanos-

Should of went for the osprey

I lost my pole off my kayak and it sat under water until I was able to retreive it the next day. The reel showed no problems but I sent it in for service just in case to avoid possible future problems. The turn around time was great but must say I'm not sure what, if anything was done. There was no paperwork or anything to tell me if anything was needed or if it was ok and nothing needed to be done.
So the turn around time is great but can't really say on the service itself as I'm not sure what was done.
Sorry, I know this is not the review you're looking for but since it had no paper work and was in the original packaging I sent it in I honestly can't say how the service was. The reel worked awesome before and after, makes it hard to tell :)

Great reel

Very smooth reel with great drag. Looking forward to using it for a long time.

Excellent Braid

I’m happy with my purchase. The braid works well I’ve caught big Reds, Black Drum and Soeckled Trout with it.

Best damn reel

I’ve been fishing this reel for a while now and my field testing is finally done. I’ve been a die hard Daiwa fan in my charter business for over 40 years and have always sworn by my Black and Golds. That is until I tried the Salos. OMG what a great reel. It works flawlessly and smoothly. I’ve put mine through hell trying to find its flaws and I have not found any. It’s as smooth as the day I got it. Do yourself a favor and get one or 12 to handle your toughest of fish.

Salos Reel 2500

Smooth, lightweight, good drag, reasonably priced. I’ve got 2 on Bull Bay Rods. My go to set ups.



Best products on the market

I have 6 of your reels in most sizes and you line on all 15 of my rods! The distance line is by far the best braided line I’ve ever used! I will be a customer for life!
