    These Diawa's look like pretty nice spinning reels. Does anyone have any opinion on whether its better to go with the GT (6.2 to 1 retreive) or the standard one (4.3 to 1 retreive). It will be used for fishing top water plugs and flying fish using 65lb braid. How do people feel they compare to a Shimano Stella 20K?

    First off, if you like the Daiwa line, go with the Z6500. The lower gear ratio really helps when you hook up. (4.3 to 1) Personally, I prefer the stella 20K. Never had a stella break at the reel seat.
