    Low gear being key.... or a 10K SWC w/ 14k spool mounted. Would also consider 2020 saltiga 14k w/ low gearing as well. Shoot me a message if you can help a brother out. Stay safe!!

    I don’t have any, but curious for low key.
    What lure or method? Vertical jigging?

    I want it for my Ripple Fisher 85F for pitching smaller stickbaits and poppers to YFT when they are dialed in on small profile bait. I fish Baja Sur primarily, and this is the situation more often than not.

    I know it'll be more of a workout during casting but thinking ahead to the actual fight w/ that very soft rod, if I connect w/ something that's a bit too big the low gear will help in those stalemate situations where you may be down to fighting for half a crank on that handle.

    I can then also double duty it for some jigging applications as well, esp w/ the 14k, i can still get a decent capacity of high strength braid on a spare spool for wreck and reef jigging.

    Cheers!

    Funny you say that, I did reach out to him last weekend but haven't heard back. Hopefully all is well, I know he's in the tri-state area...

    "... or an 8-10K SWC w/ 14k spool mounted."

    The 8000 SWC won't take a larger spool.
    I did see, though, there could be a Studio Ocean Mark spool with a greater line capacity made for this reel (8000 SW-C).

    I think you are wrong on a 14k spool not fitting the 8k SWC. I put that plan together from some pretty reliable sources. Have you tried this first hand and had an issue?

    EDIT: you are correct, THANK YOU!!

    Bump, still looking for a low gear 14k Stella, will consider similar options w/ low gear ratio.

    Thats a tough find...might be better off going with a stella 10k and a after market 16k spool

    I tried that a couple weeks back, Dan is out of stock and shipping logistics from Japan are challenging at the moment. I may have to settle for a 10k low gear, but feels wasteful to buy the wrong spec and waste that spool... Trying to be patient and let a deal come together. Fishing from the couch here since covid has actual fishing messed up at the moment. hahaha
