I know I will get hammered for this...BUT......Does it seem like people are getting unreal expectations for spinning reel capabilities? I hear people saying that their reels must get 30lbs of drag and winch a 250lb tuna in within 25 min. This CAN be done (and the stella is the tool to do it with.....for $1,000.00) but many seem to expect the same performance out of a saragosa or saltist that they get out of their Tiagra 50W. I'm all for making new, bigger, lighter and better fishing equipment (OTI appears to be doing this daily) but it seems like people are getting ahead of themselves and wanting MUCH more than the usual can handle. A Spheros is like 100 bucks.....that alone should tell you that with all the upgrades in the world (waste of time/money in my opinion) it will not be the tool for 250 lb bluefin. Of course drags will seize up, but what can you expect? Money is an issue, that's true. I can't afford/wont pay for alot of the BEST tackle, but I think I have realistic expectations. Now, let the lambasting begin.
