Looking for thoughts on the new Shimano Saragosa SWA vs a new 2020 Stella. Besides the obvious price difference which is not a major factor in my decision.

Is there any reason to step up to the Stella, I’ve had numerous Saragosa’s they have all been solid work horses. I’m torn between a new reel either Saragosa or Stella both would be in the 20k size. What are some reasons to go with one over the other?

The rod it is matched up with is a custom built (Thrasher blank) from ZCR.

I would use the Gosa unless you want to pay the money for a Stella and unless you are chasing 400+ bluefin. Even then seems like the east coast captains chase Bluefin with Gosa's as well. I like the 08 stella myself personally just because I like the looks of the reel. I prefer a used Stella over a new one to help close the huge cost gap...
