    also, the picture and model (FB) don't match with 20K

    look at where it says "low gear" on the post, it's BLANK!

    You guys shouldn't knock reels you haven't tried. I got my Stella 20K 2-speed and am very pleased with it. It definitely has two speeds--high speed when I am reeling the lure back in and low speed when something hits it.

    Don't see where it's being advertised as a 2-speed reel, rather
    posting both ratio's for both versions

    The title says 2 speed...
    I am pretty sure that if it the one in the pics its not the reel it is claimed to be.

    when I click on the link it says "twin disk". The guy might have copied-pasted the other stuff from a Japanese site where they indeed have Stella's available in two different retrieve ratios (the Stella SW models) but the two ratios aren't on the same reel :)

    "twin disc" refers to the double drag system with a drag on the top and a drag plate under the spool.

    Like so many ebay reel ads, a serious buyer cannot make sense of it w/o disregarding parts. But, if you pick and choose, he can also pick and choose later to avoid giving you what you thought you were buying. Before anyone took the ad seriously (bid on the sale), he should use ebay's board to put several specific questions to the seller to tie him down to his representations about the reel. If he won't give satisfactory answers--don't bid. Imagine what you'll get if you complain after he's got your dough.

    it could also just be the seller using keywords to attract mor hits, for example u might see something like a Penn 20 that will have avet shimano 2 speed fishing offshore after it just to attract mor hits in people search results.
