2008 Saltwater Stella Wins Best Reel


New for 2009, the Stella Saltwater range has been awarded ICAST and AFTA's best saltwater reel category. The culmination of years of research and Shimano’s latest in advanced reel technology - the Stella Saltwater (SW) series raises and once again sets the benchmark for quality in the high end spinning reel market.

 Built tough to serve 20kg-30kg of drag, you need the performance and build quality of the Stella for your best fighting chance when casting big poppers to reef edges for huge Giant Trevally or jigging for monster Dogtooth Tuna in the Coral Sea.

Shimano engineers managed to masterfully maintain the trademark operational smoothness of the range yet still achieve a significant increase in gear durability. This enhancement was to be called Paladin – featuring a cold-forged main gear and low wear-rate stainless steel pinion. Even more impressive is the fact that each model has received a decrease in overall weight which equals greater and more comfortable fishability.

Another essential component of the Stella SW is the Propulsion Line Management system, putting an end to virtually all line twist and wind knot issues – Propulsion Spool Lip with exclusive anti-scratch coating, ultra tough SR One-Piece Bail system, SR Arm Cam, redesigned Bail Trip and Power Roller IV with over-flange for the ultimate in line protection.

SW Concept provides a water resistant body and hyper disk drag (twin disk on 18000 & 20000), Assist Stopper (except 5000) and light-weight ergonomic handle. All models feature an even tougher re-enforced bail and rotor, stopperless design, Fluidrive II, Dyna-Balance and aluminium frame, rotor and sideplate.

This range of top quality reels are now available at Fish Zone, where great fishing begins
