Iv been using Penn reels forever, they just run and run and run.. They are built as tanks, not much finesse, but they can take a hell of a lot of beating.. Iv neglected and mistreated mine, but hey have served me so well.
But now i wanted to try something new! So i whent for this shiny beauty.. the Shimano Stella FJ!
Got one little beauty in size 1000 for the LRF fishing, this things runs like a Swiss watch... Spooled it up with J-braid in 0.10mm for now, while i wait for my Varivas Avani Pe0.6 line from Japan. This one will be matched up with the Evolv SFSGS-69UL TW rod. Will see if i can get some LRF fishing for Flounder fit in this weekend, would love to try it out :)
