Did you check that reel with a Geiger counter?

Hey bassFISHERMAN, Is there much of a difference between a $30 spinning reel and a $400 spinning reel? I mean...it's a spinning reel. I don't mean this as a joke. It's just a spinning reel.
I know with baitcasters, there is a big difference. But with spinning reels????

The drag is better and its smoother and its makes a difference. Also, most reels will get reck if you fish for big catfish if your looking at 4000 size because when you get snag time by time the bearings will get missed up. In saltwater these reels make a big difference, I had a quantum tour spinning reel and a shimano saros which are both over a 100 bucks and both reels got reck in 1 trip for flordia. My stella still feels as brand new with heavy saltwater fishing and so as my sustain for the past 4-7 years. In freshwater you don't really need it and yeah its a waste but its nice to have if your willing to waste your money like me.

Those pics are very impressive, and I would think you were a professional fisherman and a member of Walleyes Chicago. I bet you look professional with the high dollar gear shore fishing reeling in a monster sheephead or catfish at the Big H.....Very nice!

Are you buddies with Fishing&Fords? He has the same gear brand new and never used.....

I for one, agree. I'd much rather spend $1,000 on a combo and have it for 10+ years than replace a $150 setup every year when it shoots craps on you. I've got a Stella on a Loomis GLX, and its by far and above the most sensitive combo I've ever fished. The rod is GUARANTEED for LIFE. The reel will last forever. Yeah, it cost me a lot when I bought it, but I won't need another for a long, long time.

I've got a Zebco 202 on a white fiberglass rod from the 60's that I still take out once in a while... Drop it, dunk it in the water a couple times and go back to fishing...

I just picked up a stradic ci4 this spring, my first high end reel. I have always spent 30-50 bucks on reels and replaced them after a few years, hopefully that will change. This new stradic is sweet! That said, I still think you are nuts for spending $500 on a reel.

I have the 2500 spooled with 8lb fireline. I love it. I wish I had invested in quality reel years ago.
