    ​I’ve heard their new micro gears won’t last? Lol

    ​Oh! Ok that's good feedback lol, I am just fan la, I am a bad person to ask about this. BUT, yes I have heard similar things as well or at least murmurs of this.

    according to calvin, the reelspa guy, he didn't have issue with micro module gears for those stella he serviced

    stella is way better, which is why stella is always more expensive than exist/saltiga

    both also can.. but resale value stella will fetch highest.

    servicing for stella easier as well.

    Daiwa on the other hand, damn slow when ordering spare parts.

    At the end of the day both also ok.
  • asdasdking
    well considering resale + spare parts .. seems like stella appears to be superior! lets see if other bros out there got other comments

    Just get the one you feel the most comfortable with...  I always banter with Luke...  I am Daiwa camp, he is Shimano camp...  but in the end what you use is up to you.

    Go to the shops, feel both the reels, whichever draws your eyes is the one for you.

    magseal reel will be a challenge especially when it comes to servicing
