The Exceler is equally as stunning as the similarly priced Fuego. The difference between the two is mostly to do with the Fuego having the Magseal feature while the Exceler doesn't. If you fish mostly fresh water situations, there's far less need for the non-mandatory Magseal within the Fuego - so the Exceler is a great bet! If you're fishing in the sea, the Magseal will not make the reel completely waterproof, but it will improve the reels ability to keep the water/salt out. Even if you fish salt water, the Exceler is a safe bet. Especially if you are open to the idea of cleaning your reels out yourself. They're much more accessible than Magseal models.
