On an 8-1/2 foot St Croix V NSi medium steelhead rod with 12# Berkeley Nanofil translucent line, the 3000 Sustain reel is EXCELLENT for bonefish on the flats of Abacos, Bahamas. Will throw a 1/4 oz skimmer jig out of sight. Haven't been spooled yet... but would consider the 4000 for fish larger than 5#!!!
