It might be winter but if you live where it's warm or you're about travel, consider clothing with sun protection.
Fish hard, stay comfortable.

I’ve had the 6000 and it’s been a reliable work horse for me in the surf. Purchased the 4000 because of this for light back bay use and had issues within a week of like use. Will not recommend any product with a high end price tag that has poor quality control. Staff at Saltwaters Edge more than helpful and will be taking my business there in the future.
Great reel. I picked it up as I mostly surf fish the RI coast. With that comes a lot of dunking and rough wear and tear, etc. So far the reel has lived up to its promise and I have not had any issues. This is not as free spinning/smooth as standard spinning reels. This has to do with the fully sealed function of the reel according to what I have found. However, upon opening up the reel and I noticed it is absolutely PACKED to the gills with grease. If you go in and take out some of the grease it will run a lot smoother. Do this is “at your own risk” of course but in my experience so far is hasn’t compromised the water proof seal quality of the reel. I recommend this reel very highly to any one who is hitting the surf/rocks and can’t spend the money on a VS. I’d give it 5 stars but the extra insane amount of grease in there forces me to go 4.
