Shimano Stella SW Fishing Reels
Shimano Stella SW series (Famous for the Stella 14000 SW, Stella 18000 SW and Stella 8000 SW) is running with the slogan 'strength' does not have to mean 'weight'. One of the Shimano Stella SW greatest features is the High Rigidity Aluminium body (X-Ship) which increases cranking power in the line.
The Shimano Stella SW also possess 14 SA-RB bearings, a rigid aluminium handle, and a one-piece aluminium shaft with a stainless steel core which provides more power under load.
The Shimano Stella SW X-Tough Drag is one of the highlight features that Shimano has used in the Stella SW, with an increased washer size and Coil Wave Spring to deliver higher drag consistency.
Shimano Stella also has X-Shield and X-Protect gasket and rubber seals, keeping saltwater intrusion on the Shimano Stella SW at bay.
The Shimano Stella SW has the advanced Hagane body, which will not twist or warp, and keeps features like X-Ship, which through Hagane cold forged gears and increased bearing support, increases cranking power.
When you have a massive dogtooth, southern bluefin tuna, giant trevally or blue marlin hooked up and disappearing over the horizon the Shimano Stella will keep battling to the new horizon. Or if you are aiming for the bottom of the ocean, the Shimano Stella X-Tough Drag, with increased carbon washer size and Coil Wave Spring will keep delivering drag consistency at every setting and for the full duration of the fight.
The most extreme of fishing conditions and situations is where the Shimano Stella SW demonstrates its thoroughbred lines. With the Shimano Stella, casting heavy and high resistance lures like metal jigs, stick baits and poppers long distances with accuracy and efficiency, has never been easier. This is thanks to a combination of X-Rigid Rotor, SR one-piece titanium bail arm wire, as well as an SW Diamond Like Carbon bail roller to cut down heat buildup. The only reason there are no better spin reels than the Shimano Stella SWBs is that Shimano has not invented them yet!
