I got this great opportunity to pick up a New Stella 10000FA at a ridiculously low price. I don't really need or want the reel as I am most happy and comfortable with 8000 size machines. I already own an 8000FA and just received a new 8000SWPG for Christmas. I also own A Saragosa 18000 for popping but find it a bit large, same as the Stella 10000FA..... What concerns me is the high gear ratio on the 10000FA. Should I not be worried because it is a Stella and has enough cranking power regardless of high gear ratio.? As I mention, I don't really need the reel, but it's very difficult to pass on this one.
