Having similar thoughs Spitfire, at the moment i have a stradic 4000fh which will do the job perfectly,had it 3 years and still silky smooth. But new Tenyru ,needs a new reel,but the wife won't look at it that way. New rod new kitchen floor. Oh well will have to put my foot down! kitchen floor it is then! Shimano twin power look the dogs and thats probably what i will eventually go for,but don't tell the wife.

Got the Twinpower 4000 size loaded with braid. Can't fault it.

Me too. Load it with 30lb braid. I use little known Fladen Maximus - 0.12mm dia. Never tangles. Best kept secret?????

The Shimano Stradic 4000 FI is a beautiful reel too, I have mine loaded with 30lb Powerpro and it is a dream to use.

I have and still think a front drag Twin Power in 4000 size is worth more than they cost, a superb reel, light, powerful and smooth as silk, great sped of retrieve too.

I have a Stradic 4000 and its fine, although some say too fast a retrieve.
I got a Daiwa Certate 4000 this year and the build is much much more solid. The spool is also wider and holds more line which equals less reduction in line fill when casting which in turn means slightly longer casts than the Stradic. That's my impression anyway.

At the end of the day its a very personal thing and we all get influenced by our environment. Twinpowers and Techniums seem to have a faithful local following. Certates are very popular with French bass guides and reading lots of French bass mags and visiting French dealers over the years has no doubt influenced my choice a great deal.

I would just suggest that you get your hands on as many as you can, even if it winds up your friendly local tackle dealers, before commiting your cash.

I am after a new rod and I've been pawing my shortlist of three for several days now.... MrFish is a very very patient gentleman.

Been through about 5 spinning reels in the past 2 years (Saltwater damage on Kayak) Technium is best i have used. Must learn to buy cheapo reels for Yakking!

With my Bar 270 I use the Stradic 5000(white ones).
Designed for saltwater use,totally stunning and loaded with 40lb Power Pro.

I think I may be the only person around using an Aspire 4000 rear drag, I've never heard anyone else mention them, nor seen one.

Well there must be one other, the ******* that picked my first one up in Llandeilo train station car park when I left it there!

Very good reel for Salmon and Bass, just that notch up from the Stradics and Twin powers etc. but not in Van Staal territory by a long way.
