Baitrunner for me also their bombproof I have the 8 and 10000 models but I think the 10000s spool is way too big really but the 8000 is perfect a 300yds of spool fits just right

Another vote for the baitrunner - I have a pair of 10000 and 8000.
8000 seems better suited to spinning

Shimano Stella, good enough for Tuna & GT but with a price tag to match! They are all that you are looking for & a lot more, spinning in freshwater they will outlast you & your offsprings children. Bombproof in every respect!

Hi thanks for advice guys, i was shocked at the price on a descent reel, so settled for a hart custom xs 3500, allumimium dody, stainless sealed bearings, carbon and stainless sealed drag, marine grade bronze gearing, carbon spool and rotor head, 15kg drag, excellent price 130 off ebay, seepics attatched, seems like a high quality reel have yet to fish it
