THE NEW STELLA is known throughout the world. It is one of anglings most iconic reels, the flagship of Shimano. But Stella is so much more than just engineering excellence. Stella has a history and it has soul. It delivers enjoyment on so many levels. To some just owning a Stella is enough. The pride, the passion, it defines you as an angler in more ways than words ever could, and to use Stella delivers unrivalled pleasure. The new Stella is now ready for the next generation. Own it with pride and use it with joy... after all you deserve it!
Incredible Smoothness: The addition of MICROMODULE gear technology to Stella provides an incredible breakthrough in gear design and alignment that delivers a new level smoothness without sacrificing strength or durability. The reduced vibration and enhanced smoothness result in greater sensitivity transmitted from your rod, line and lure to your hand.
Technology improves gear component alignment within the reel itself. By reducing any movement of critical parts within the reel, Shimano has eliminated microscopic amounts of handle play that existed in previous models. The result is an incredible solid feeling that maximizes the power and energy transfer when fishing.
G Free Body
Technology has been developed to shift the reel’s center of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the center of gravity closer to the anglers hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
Total Protection: The concept of COREPROTECT is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection; the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.
