shimano sustain worth the money?

is the shimano sustain FE worth the money. i will be using it for bass fishing .plz only answer if you have used or own the reel.

In my opinion, I think the Sustain isn’t nice enough to warrant the extra expenditure. The Stradic is “almost” as good for a much cheaper price! Compare the two and you’ll see what I mean…..

(Although the Stradic CI4 is certainly “pretty” and isn’t necessarily a “bad” reel, after reading reviews and checking it out numerous times at my Bro-inlaws Tackle shop I think I’ll stick with the FI.)
