Personally---if I was gonna lay out that kind of escarole on a reel---I'd go with a VS. You don't have to wonder whether it's really waterproof.

If I wanted something with the smoothness of a Stella--I'd go with one of those TiCA Taurus reels. From what I can see inside, they're identical to a Stella with one big difference---the main drive gear on the Taurus is brass, not aluminum as the case with the Stella.

They're also $450 cheaper and probably just as "water resistant". Heck, a Penn 704 is "water resistant" even if it isn't packed with grease.

Well--maybe the new owners will offer a lefty model VS. That would have been a smarter move than that $2,000 offshore abortion.

Koelwyn always said he'd build a lefty version when his left handed son was old enough to use one---and, I figure that kid must be about 15 now ;)
