    Hey guys, whats everyones views on using the new 18k stella for jigging and popping...... i figured i could use this reel on a popper rod for off the rocks and i could easily use it jigging for yellowfin.... I rarely get outwide to tackle Yellowfin but i know how much of a ***** it was to use a old 10000FA jigging...

    Is the new 18k stella have the same spool capacity as the old 20kFA? or can the 18k stella fit the 20kSW spool? Someone fill me in!

    Cheers guys!

    The Stella 18kSW can use 20kSW spools. It's a high speed reel, so it's going to be like the Stella 10kFA for jigging, PITA. I would use it for Popping and get a 20kSW for jigging YFT. You'll get enough capacity on the 18kSW if you use PE5/PE6 line for YFT.
