THERE’S A NEW SPECIES ATOP THE SALTWATER FOOD CHAIN.
Built upon the proven foundation of the 6000 series, the all-new and larger 8000 PRO is designed for tackling big-game saltwater species. The 8000 PRO gives you a new dimension of fish-stopping power via an integrated, secondary drag control mechanism, to fine-tune and calibrate your drag. With its unique two-stage drag control, you can dial-up new degrees of fish-fighting resistance at the high end, in anticipation of the species you’re targeting. Simultaneously, you can set your preferred line resistance at the drag’s low end, to prevent over-stripping as you take line for your cast. It’s all one smooth and exceedingly powerful drag system, enhanced with a greater range of resistance settings provided by the secondary drag control mechanism. Sorry, fish.
