Once you use a Shimano Stella, you won't want to use any other spinning reel on the market! This is my 3rd Shimano Stella and I still can't believe Shimano finds a way to improve on a outstanding spinning reel time after time. I use the Stella for inshore Saltwater Fishing and haven't experienced any corrosion issues, gears binding, premature bail flip, wind knots, bearing failures or drag failures. Mist them with fresh water, dry them off and they're good to go. All my Stella Reels are still out of the box smooth after years of use. My favorite features of the Stella is the effortless turning of the handle even with a large fish hooked, Quiet function and the SUPER SMOOTH and ACCURATE DRAG under any pressure. I've never lost a fish due to any malfunction of any Stella Reel that I own. Yes, they're expensive, but you won't have the buyers remorse that you may get from another manufactures "Premium" fishing reels. 100% Worth it.
