Solid Reel

Solid reel with plenty of power and feels like you can reel in a tug boat with it. A little on the heavier side but i personally like the stoutness. Purchased on a bundle deal and have no regrets.

Since I just got a set of the 5000 and 6000's for the upcoming tarpon season I haven't put them to the test yet. However they do seem to be solid and smooth reeling. Can't wait to hook a giant and watch the line fly off these reels!

Too heavy

Solid reel. Always have been impressed with FFP but this reel in my opinion, is way too heavy for a 5000.

Tarpon and bull shark tested

I'm a charter Capt, lifelong guide now semi-retired. I've used every major brand of reel in a long career. The FFP reels I use are my favorite and I'm eventually replacing everything I own with them. This summer I got to try out the 6000 Resolute on our Winyah Bay Tarpon and oversized bull sharks. I personally caught tarpon over 100 lbs. Super smooth drag. Bull sharks unintentionally hooked fishing for tarpon up to several hundred lbs. Clients were blown away a reel so light didn't fade on 200 yd runs. One big bull even gave us a rare complete out of the water jump. I estimated it at 250 lbs. It takes a lot to impress me with fishing equipment. I am impressed with the FFP line of reels I use from speckled trout size to big tarpon reels.
