Rated 5 out of 5 by Buckattack Another great Shimano reel
I have 3 Shimano Stellas, 1000, 2500, and 4000. Never had a problem. I was replacing cheaper reels often. I've had the 4000 now for about 8 years. I just keep it clean and oiled. Parts don't break on it like cheaper reels.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BATW The best money can buy!
I have so many rods, reels and gear it is silly. My reels date back to one from England from the 1700's but when I bought my first Stella I was blown away! I've tried everything including the Diawa Steez and nothing can compare. This reel is phenomenal in every aspect. I have been using it for a few years now to see how it holds up and it seems to get better each time. I see a few have had problems and I would say "exchange it fool!" This is an experience in fishing excellence. They are pricey but far better than then $1500 rivals without doubt! I had no problem landing a 45" Musky on #8 test with it (caught by accident Walleye fishing) and everything else I have landed is like cheating the fight with an unbelievably smooth drag. If you can't part with the coin, try the Pleuger President as it is the best spinning reel for under $200 (only about $70 bucks too). If you buy a Stella beware...you'll part with $700+ but leave thousands in other gear in the closet to collect dust!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudiLen A piece of fishing art
It's just plain beautiful. Smooth as silk, Zero backlash. Never seen anything like it. It's a lot of money for an ultralight reel and that first scratch is gonna hurt, but OMG, it's amazing. I have a couple of the stratic CI4's which are nice , but this reel just blows everything away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaddySlacks smooth and strong
Purchased A Stella 3000FE for walleye casting and flatline trolling.
Great reel, smooth, strong and casts a mile.
Paired up with a LOOMIS NRX 6'10" Med rod NRX822SDSRG and this is favorite walleye outfit for casting and flatline trolling.
Takes braid line without problems. 5 Stars
Keep lubricated and this reel should last a lifetime.
