Smooth as butter!
I read a lot of mixed reviews on the S series reels but decided to give it a shot. I have landed multiple small keeper size striped bass and have zero complaints. Nothing beats Star's customer service regardless of issues.

giving it another shot
Reel looks and feels good. That said, i took it out for a spin for the first time this weekend, line lay is not so good got a lot of tangles which caused me to take a loss on the braid (jerry brown 30lb also ordered from td) and bail spring broke. Maybe this is was a one-off, im willing to give this reel another shot. Called tackle direct and they will exchange for me. Hopefully i'll have better luck with the second one otherwise it's a waste of money.

Decent for the money
Similar to a 706, but has the twin rollers so only needs half the rotation to pick the line up if you convert it to bailless. Overall, a great reel for the price, is much lighter than the 706Z or Van Staals

I have the star 8000 with a manual and at one point the dual manual setup on it. Unfortunately though, I found the manual doesn't have a ball bearing and literally frays your line when pressure is applied. Both manuals on my reel have cut's in them were my 15lb mono chewed through the plastic arm just under the there another manual pick-up option for the star reel? As if now I have a reel brand new I can't even use.
1 Answers
Unfortunately there isn't any other manual pick up options that star reels have presently in their reel selections.

Would the s7000 pair up well with a black hole cape cod nano 9’6?
1 Answers
The S7000 would be a good reel to compliment the 9' Nano.

Can you recommend a rod (or a couple options) to pair with the S7000 for casting lighter lures (1-2.5oz) from the surf?
1 Answers
The Penn Battalion 10', St Croix Mojo 10'6'' or the Lamiglas SSS 10 MS Super Surf 2G Rod would be great choices to team up with the S7000 model reel using 1-2.5 oz plugs.
