Topper,what size Saltiga do you use 14000 ? and when you have fish on
What reel feels better,great read.
I know you have only couple reels but I have to ask
I have the 10000H, like I said in my post I love the 5.7 ratio and not the 6.2 so I always get the H ratio.
When I have fish on, the Saltiga feels better imo, it is much smoother and tighter.
Thank You Bud , I will get 14000H than,great information from "Tackle Ho"
No need to check anymore.
I thought the H was the high gear
didn’t know they make 14000H? Just XH. That would be good.
No, XH stands for XtraHigh and its 6.2 while H stands for High and ratio of 5.7.
14000 only comes in XH, I have the 10000H with 14000 Spool.
Just real time info from me, I really enjoy this reel, as much as I love Stella, I would never thought I would say it but Saltiga is better for sure for this year anyways.
That is a good idea, I have the 14xh and I want just a tad slower for more torque, the 10k is a good idea to swap.
I read and read forums and reviews on both trying to make a decision. Went into a tackle store & handled both. The saltiga was smooth as butter & felt bombproof. The Stella was clanking (gear lash) as I rotated the handle and felt somewhat cheap. To be honest, My twin power felt better. Shimano has better service but even the guys in the store agreed- they seem to be constantly lowering their quality in the stellas. I’m a shimano guy but the Saltiga felt superior enough that l bought it without hesitation- hence the longer and pricier service. 18000H for Northeast BFT / YFT and it’s a beast.
I agree with camwalsh. I put a hurting on my gosa 10k a few weeks ago with a 63” bluefin and a 2hr fight. That made me look in saltiga and stella. After playing with both, the saltiga just felt like a $1,000 reel when the stella just felt cheaper. I wound up getting the 14000xh. Cant wait to put it to good use
Don’t mean to bump this thread- just adding something for a prospective buyer.
it appears the service may not be an issue under normal circumstances.
