    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.

    i bought on to jig with and it burned me up. especially real deep. that was when shimano was saying high gear ratio for jigging. i was stupid. then i got a 20000 and it was better. then i got a 8000 and now all is well.
    that being said i would still pick up a 10000 for a deal. good going!!!!

    excellent reel for tossing poppers (but put a 20K spool on it for capacity if that's an issue).
