    I have been looking at the Shimano Stella SW 8000-HG (JP Model) to use as my popping reel? Does anyone have any experience with this? My second choice was a Stella 6000FA with a 8000 spool??
    thanks

    The 8000 is going to be my primary popping reel

    I agree with D-A on the 8000, although I use larger reels like the 10000 or the 2000 I would say yes to the 8000 and definately NO on the 6000 not enough capacity

    I was going to use the 8000 spool for more line capacity? Guess i'll just go with the 8000HG

    The 6000FA with 8000 spool is just a faster retrieve 8000 reel. The gear ratio is the only difference between the body of the 6000/8000. I think putting an 8000 spool on a 6000 sounds like a great idea.
