The original Dreadnought reel quickly became our favorite spinning reel for both freshwater and inshore saltwater use. The latest generation has taken that bar and raised it even higher. Ultra-smooth thanks to 11 (10+1) stainless steel ball bearings and containing a sturdy carbon disc drag, it is more than capable of sustained abuse on the water. This reel is ideal for drop-shotting for bass to free-lining bait in the salt and everything in between.The matte-finished aluminum body is both durable and eye-catching, and the spool porting and blue accents bring the reel in line with the rest of the range of SixGill reels and rods. Whether your sights are set on big bass at your next tournament or a record-smashing snook, the Dreadnought is a necessary addition to any armada!

    After fishing with my two new reels in both freshwater and salt. I'll just say the drag is phenomenal. The components are excellent as well. I purchased two on the bogo deal. Definitely worth it. I'll purchase the 4000 size in the future for larger saltwater applications. Great real Sixgill. Well done!

    Dreadnought spinning reel

    Published by Jon dixon on 26th Jan 2022

    Only had this reel a short while. Functionally seems to work fine. Cast smooth. Overall all cosmetic finish doesn’t seem as smooth and polished as my diawa Tatula spinning reels. Bought on a bogo so price point was about half as much as my Tatula. Give it 3 stars just because of lack of experience with it. So far it does seem fine.

    This is a great reel, definitely a workhorse that'll stand up for whatever you want to catch.

    Great inshore reel!!

    Published by Bob Seibert on 21st Jan 2022

    Excellent reel for all inshore species… incredibly lightweight with best in class backbone (drag)! Paired with the Khimera rod and you have a lightweight rig that is super sensitive and capable of landing 30”+ reds’

    Dreadnought Series 3000 Spinning reels

    Published by David Hickman on 8th Dec 2021

    Half the weight of any spinning reel I've ever used in 50+ years of fishing. Handles anything from a big ol' bass buried deep in cover to one of those monster grennel the size of a torpedo. Can't praise it enough. SixGill rocks

    The reel casts and retrieves with ease. I’ve pulled in many bass with reel and would highly recommend to others.

    Doesn't cast well

    Published by Troy Crippen on 15th Sep 2021

    I'm going to respool it with different line, but 15lb braid to flouro leader usually casts well, but not on this reel. I'm also going to use a new lighter rod and see if that helps, but the line just doesn't leave the spool freely
