    Re: Who would buy this reel?!?! Lol

    Not me, WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY OVER PRICED IMO.....That reel ISN'T going to Guaranttee a(any) fish everytime you hit the water. I'd rather spend on other things like a boat, fishfinder, multiple rods and reels.

    The guy (or gal) that buys this reel does NOT shop at Harbor Freight.

    I fish with the lower end Shimano reels such as the Sahara and Sedona, and I love them. I can't imagine how the Stella reels must feel and perform. If I had the moneys I would buy one!

    The person who uses this reel for its intended purpose doesn't make compromises. He won't use anything but the best tool for the job because if it isn't the best tool, he feels that the chance for failure is great. When he is fishing in the middle of nowhere, the thought in the back in his head that isn't wanted is the thought whether the equipment is going to fail.

    I used to lead fly fishing trips to Loreto, Mexico. Some of my clients would arrive with heavy freshwater reels that would do the job on freshwater fish, but not on saltwater fish. Some time during the middle of these trips, someone's reel would fail (drags seize, drags exlode, spool arbors would get crushed under intense pressure). They would end up using someone else's spare (usually mine).

    If I had the money and lived in an area of the world where I could use this reel regularly, I would buy it.
