This model will probably not be imported to Japan, and even if it is, it will not be cheaper than buying it from Tackle Direct.
(Although, on the contrary, you can buy Shimano Stella SW in Japan for less than in the U.S.)
First of all, this is made in China, but if you don't mind that, the PENN Slammer 5500 DX is wonderfully comfortable to wind, and if you can get it at this price, you will be happy even if it is not a Stella SW!
I can expect the durability of stainless steel gears in addition to a winding feel that is comparable to the Stella SW8000HG that I have, which is probably the same size.
Unfortunately, however, the 4500DX, which I purchased later in the day, was disappointing to wind up with, as it seemed to be made in China, not quite the same line!
It looks like it will be reborn with Japanese bearings and the latest lubricant service.
Is the bearing standard for this reel metric?
Looking forward to seeing the 2500DX in stock.
- As for the 5500DX, you can expect great winding comfort and durability with stainless steel gears.
- Made in China
- The Chinese cut corners where you can't see them.
