    I'm looking for some advice. Im lookin to buy either a Sustain or Stella 5000. Is the Stella a better reel? Lookin for technical advice on these reels. I'm a tackle ho so spending money isn't the issue. It's whether or not the Stella is a better reel and why. Looking for technical advice here. Thanks men!

    The question is whether or not you need one. You didn't say what your use was going to be. If you need a reel to take LARGE/FAST and powerful fish, it is the stella.

    Stella is by far better than the sustain, it is a high jump in price but it is much better. I have a Sw5000HG and SW6000PG and they are great reels, smooth as silk. None of the Stella family have die on me yet and I got 7 of them. I say buy the best and be done with it.

    -fairly substantial leap between those two models.

    I think if you tied 2 sustain reels and had a tug-o-war battle with 1 stella... I think the stella would win. :)
