    Seen some of these on ebay. Looks like well built reels but what do you get for the 500.00 to 700.00 Price tag?

    Those are top of the food chain reels from Shimano to pretty and pricey to bust up while catfishing. I have an 80.00 Shimano Sahara 8000(they dont build them in that size anymore) that has served me well over the years. :big_smile:

    The Stella rels are designed for the saltwater fisherman. These reels I guess are built super tough for those of you that want to throw topwater for tuna or freestyle jigging big grouper and amberjack. If you ever tie into a big tuna your going to need a tough reel and lots of line. I'm headed out in Sept. to try my luck catching some tuna and wahoo around the oil rigs.
