Many fishermen are anxiously waiting for new Stella 30000, especially fishermen who want to catch giant or big cow ( 200 plus lb yellowfin) with spinning reels.
I can say I am one of them.
However, is the line capacity of the reel good enough for giant over 500 lb ?
In my opinion, the answer is yes and no.
I caught giant in 600 lb - 900 lb with conventional reels in P.E.I. and in Cape Cod.
Most giant took 200 - 400 yards on 35 - 45 lb drag initially. But some took lots of line and i got spooled twice as they took 450 plus line on 45 - 50 lb drag.
My friend Billy got spooled by a giant in NC last month when he fished with JM PE8 filled with over 500 yards of JB 100 lb on 35 lb initial drag.
Several giant in 500 lb - 600 lb brought to the boat using JM PE7 and PE8 though.
The possibility to land a true giant with Stella 30000 is pretty good, but you also have chances to get spooled by giant.
