Please tell me why you choose the Stella over the twinspin.
I keep wanting to burst my piggy bank for a new spinning reel. Where should I spend my kids college tuition?
I own both, and they are both great reels. Just treat yourself before you die.
You will have to replace the twinspin knob because it's just plain uncomfortable. The stella is smoother and comes with two handles.
