If the 20000 is the alpha, the Shimano Stella STL30000SWBPG Spinning Reel is definitely the omega. The End Game. The Bottom Line. The biggest, most powerful, and most outrageous spinning reel on the market today. Although the STL30000SWBPG has less drag than its brothers, coming in at 44#, don’t let that fool you – the engineers at Shimano have listened to tuna fisherman all over the world and the general consensus was that less heat and more line capacity is paramount when hunting giant bluefin and yellowfin. 44# of drag is still about what a standard 50 wide reel produces, but you’ll have the added benefit of a truly gargantuan line capacity – we’re talking 750 yards of professionally spooled 80# braid! This puts the reel in range of mighty giant bluefin up to the 700# class, black and blue marlin to about the same weight, world record class yellowfin, and the almighty goliath grouper! The PG notation means the cranking power of the STL30000SWBPG is second to none, coming in at an absurdly powerful 4.4:1 gear ratio. The Shimano Stella STL30000SWBPG Spinning Reel is in a class of its own – no other reel on the market can touch its line capacity or drag output while still maintaining otherworldly smoothness. Like I said, the Omega.
