Shimano Sustain vs Shimano Saragosa?

Hi Guys,
I wanted to get some feedback on two Shimano spinning reels that I'm undecided on - the Sustain vs the Saragosa. I plan to use it mostly in the surf... for tossing plugs, metal, bucktails and the like. I love how smoothe the Sustain is... like butter... but I think the Saragosa has a stronger drag which could definitely come in handy in the surf. So, if anyone out there has any experience with either of these reels, please pass along your thoughts. Thanks! Stay Safe

Just a thought, but if you are going to be getting them hit with spray or dunking them occasionally I am not sure I would go with the sustain. I do not know much about the saragosa, but the sustains are precision reels. I feel like they would easily be damaged in the surf. Sure they would keep ticking, but not at the high level that your payed for them. IMO, I would look more towards reels that were designed for the surf. However, if you are just throwing off the rocks and what not, the sustain will be great.
