    Thinking of buying one of these reels. Anyone have any exsperiece with the Accurate Twin spin. If the sustain 10000 or 20000 ? rod suggestions. I have been using Shimano for years Trinidad to Tiagra, also Steela 1000 for trout. Fishing out of San Diego.

    Welcome aboard.

    Try a search of the board. There have been lots of opinions posted here about those reels. Fish are fish. Fishermen have their own opinions.

    Oh yeah,
    I'm trying out my new OTI 7 ft spinning rod next weekend. I'll post a report and pictures.
    I opted for the Stella because of second-hand prices. I suggest that you take a closer look at the Saltigas.

    You can't go wrong with a Stella, Saltiga, or Accurate. The Sustain only goes up to the 8000 size. Forget all other spinning reels unless you can afford the new Zeebaas ZX3 which is coming out in July. It will be expensive, probably around $1500 to $2000. It might be worth a one month wait.

    Welcome aboard Jerrybarnes 13.

    I'm with Deep Sea Gull, the Saltigas are the way to go, unless you like a reel that looks like a christmas tree (stella) or handles like it was designed by a railroad engineer (twin spin).
    Check-out the Caranx poping forum and see what a well used Saltiga looks like inside - and who tried to copy it!

    Plenty of ideas on this forum about jigging rods.
    I've already upset a few of the natives so I'll leave you to decide for yourself.

    unless you like a reel that looks like a christmas tree (stella)

    Thats funny although I dont understand it. I have 3 stellas ...the new japanese 4000, the 10,000HG and the 20,000PG. They are without a doubt the best reels I have had. Very smooth and powerfull drag, good line (braid)capacity and the reel is one of the most used spinning reels worldwide.

    I tried the earlier twinspins an i wasnt crazy aboput the amount of tourque but i heard they made changes. In the end you cant really go wrong with either the stellas, twinspins and saltigas. they are all top quality

    Can somone please explain the christmas tree deal LOL

    Agree with g-man ". In the end you cant really go wrong with either the stellas, twinspins and saltigas. they are all top quality"
    Have both Shimano Stella 20000 & Daiwa Saltiga SA-Z5000 - both great reels
    "the new Zeebaas ZX3 " seems to be awesome - maybe someday as lottery winner. :)

    I would. Some people will pay for the best. Especially if I could shred some fresh cheese for my sandwich. That makes it a dual purpose reel.:D

    My predictions for the ZeeBass:

    MrBill: will buy 4 of them.

    Rick will buy 12 of them and have T.J. sell 9 after one week of heavy fishing.

    TJ won't buy any but will post pictures of a couple for sale demonstrating that they are in perfect condition with the exception of thumbprints permanently pushed into the metal while applying excessive drag. (Further research by a particularly careful buyer will reveal that these prints belong to Rick.) There will be small arrows meticulously showing these slight flaws.

    Kil:won't buy any because they don't have a star drag and he will disapprove of their freespool capability.

    gman:will stick with reels that look like Christmas Trees. He's just that kind of guy. His son, however, will catch a world-record tuna on one.

    Randy: will be unable to find a Japanese supplier and continue to sell Saltigas and Shimanos, thank you very much.

    Gunsmoke: will toss at least 5 of them overboard between now and 2020, and will slip one into the drink of an over-60 hooker at a bar he side-tripped to in Nuevo Laredo on his way from taking an unsuspecting boy scout troop, all of whom were formerly virgins, on a fishing trip from New York to British Columbia.

    jerry barnes: will wonder why he ever opened a thread that could so easily be hijacked by some senile old coot named Uncle Russ.

    gman:will continue to wonder what the Hell is so funny about a Stella looking like a damned Christmas tree! They are good reels, by golly.

    Zeebaas has reinvented the bail. One is on order for this guy. Might be another month or so, but I ordered the big boy with the oval handle (post#5 this thread). Check out the tiny gas struts for the bail mechanism. I assume they are gas. Might be spring loaded.
