Diawa Saltiga Z6000(GT) or Shimano Stella 20000?

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.
