    i had bid on several shimano stellas on ebay, and never got close. the ones i bid on sold for over 400$:eek:oooh:
    i even bid on a used one that brought over 300$:tounge_out:

    several days ago i put a half price bid on a new one and i now own it:embarassed:

    i can't believe no one outbid me. i didn't really need it, and i didn't need to spend the money....however, it is a done deal now. i will put it on my new black and blue rod when it gets here.
    i will save the stradic for a shimano talavera rod..it's gonna be awhile before i can afford that rod tho.

    i have a symetre, a stradic, and now a stella. these will be the rigs i use almost exclusively. excellent reels. i hope that i match them well to the rods. i can't wait to go back to eufala and do some big blue fishing!:big_smile:

    Don't be afraid to learn. Knowledge is weightless, a treasure you can always carry easily.

    Enjoy your new reels sometimes you do get lucky or unlucky depending on your view when using ebay. LoL :big_smile: I too was playing with ebay and placed a bid on a Shimano reel and it comes with a Ugly Stick. It was really the reel that I wanted. By my surprise I actually won it:confused2:. Oh well I guess I have a new rod and reel on its way......:wink: Congrats if i didn't already mention that....:wink:
