My mate got one of them. Pretty solid reel.
If you could get at $200, it's worth it I'd say.

I did purchase 1 for $198 delivered. I am yet to use it.
I prefer the lower gear ratio or I would have bought another stradic I honestly don't understand shamano's fascination with high Ratio reels

$198 for it, is a good price.

A man once told me, the slowest fish in the world is still faster than the fastest reel ever built.

6.2:1 I like spinning off the beach and casting to salmon and Skippy's out of the boat but for using plastics for snapper on the reef and pulling gummys off the sand 5.2:1 is good.
I find the best reel I have is my shimano bio master SWAPG 5000 at 4.8:1 I also find the lower gear ratio lasts longer as it puts less stress on the reel I have had that bio master since 2014 I think it was .
Thae last 5 reels I have bought are daiwa because they offer a lower ratio and I have been a die hard shimano fan for 40 + years
