Here are a few pictures of it with the original shallow spool (FD spools also fit this reel for those who own a Stella FD). FE spools (the deeper ones) are available from America or Japan.
As this reel has a shallow spool, I will be trying some Yamatoyo Famell SW Super PE braid (1.2 PE @ 16lb and 1.5 PE @ 20lb) - it will be interesting to see how it compares with my beloved usual PowerPro .19.
Loaded and ready to go.
I will also be trying a different fluorocarbon this season (I usually use Sufix Invisiline which can be a bit expensive and hard to get hold of).
TripleFish Fluorocarbon in 15 & 20lb.
Anyways - not long to go now & I will hopefully be able to post a catch report (Dorset at the start of June).
