Shimano® Stella Saltwater Spinning Reel
- X-Ship pinion gear boosts cranking power
X-Touch Drag provides added control and smoothness
A-RB stainless steel bearings
Tournament-proven Paladin gear enhancement
Innovative, SR-Concept design
Aero Wrap II Oscillation for uniform line lay
The saltwater Stella spinning reel is designed for power, rigidity,
toughness, drag performance and water resistance. X-Touch Drag
creates dramatically enhanced smoothness, control and durability by
applying pressure from above and below the drag washers.The
double-bearing-supported X-Ship pinion gear boosts cranking power
and gear efficiency, reducing handle rotation torque by 60%. Its
always-smooth, 15-bearing system features A-RB® stainless steel
bearings for 10 times more corrosion resistance. Tournament-proven
Paladin® gear enhancement lets you crank down hard on heavyweight
fish with a cold-forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened pinion
gear. Innovative, SR®-Concept design delivers smooth, reliable
performance from all components, including 3-D gears,
triple-ball-bearing oscillation, one-piece bail wire, a floating
shaft and a boltless, perfectly balanced body. The five-piece
Propulsion® Line Management System increases casting distance and
line flow, while reducing friction and line twist. Aero Wrap® II
Oscillation for uniform line lay. DynaBalance® prevents wobble
during retrieves. Super Stopper® II anti-reverse eliminates
backplay. Polished Fluidrive® II gear surfaces maximize tooth
contact. Cold-forged aluminum spool with titanium lip.
Corrosion-blocking (Electronic Ionization) surface treatment.
Lightweight magnesium frame and sideplates. Nonslip Septon® grips.
Easy-access maintenance ports.
