Rated 4 out of 5 by p8s4h First Impressions
First impression is always key, and my first impression when I pulled this reel out of the box was very very very good. I'm not really a Shimano guy myself, so I was a bit skeptical about the reel but everything I read about it sounded great, especially the BassPro reviews.
I bought the 4000 model to have a medium-light reel to throw on my 7'0 Avid Inshore rod, but I didn't want something too light. I needed a reel that would handle a good fight when I have 3 or 4 mackerel on at once or when I'm jigging on the bottom for some ground fish, and again have a couple on at a time.
As soon as I picked up the reel it felt solid, and I knew right away it would balance nicely with my rod. The aluminum body should hold up great with some tlc and the reel feels very smooth, as it should be out of the box. I also went with this reel because of the simplicity of it's mechanics. This is a simple reel on the inside, perfect for servicing on your own, especially if you know you'll be getting this reel a bit wet or dirty. It won't take hours on top of hours to clean a bit of sand out of it. It has pretty good capacity for braid as well if you think you'll need it in deeper waters, which I do.
When I got home I threw the reel on my rod to check the balance and it was awesome. The combination feels very slick. I can't wait to get out and catch some fish. I'm confident this reel won't let me down.
I ONLY gave this reel 4 stars simply because I haven't caught anything with it yet. I see other reviewers on this site applying this logic as well, and I agree with it. I'm very happy with the purchase so far.

by crawfishking Why buy a Stella?
The 18,000 that I just purchased makes 2 Saragosas that I own. The other one is a 14,000 They are incredible reels for the money. They get more use on our offshore boat than any other reel. I have used a Stella and I really can not understand the price difference. I certainly can't tell the difference while using it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by MSGCFishing GREAT REEL
Put the 8000 on a TEREZ Waxaing rod loaded with 30 power pro. Landed 4-40 plus pound Cobia with no problem. Super smooth drag no boounce what so ever. Landed several 30 plus Kings with the same results. can't say enough about the reel. Also have the 18000 on a TEREZ with 80# power pro and use it to jig for snapper/grouper/tuna with great results. If your thinking Stella STOP this is as good or better (I own 2 Stellas).

by whatcanitenow Best reel ever
I have the 6000/ 8000 /18000 I use all of them for vertical jigging which is very hard on the reels.
6000 was bought in 2009
8000 was bought in 2010
1800 was bought in 2011
Now my 8 year old son is into vertical jigging and I have plans for a 4000 with the lighter trevala S rod.
