Packed with the latest and most advanced technologies Shimano offers, power and torque far beyond what was previously thought possible with a spinning reel, and incredible durability, the Shimano Stella delivers next generation performance and stays at the top of the class. The MicroModule Gear System provides improved gear alignment, as well as more power and torque thanks to the use of micro-teeth on the main gear and pinion gear. The S-Direct Drive System picks up from there, allowing the handle to screw directly into the drive gear, for a pure transfer of power that makes it ounce-for-ounce one of the most powerful spinning reel ever created. The S-Direct drive system also eliminates all back play. Core Protect delivers a major upgrade in durability by keeping water out of the reel’s inner workings and thus greatly increasing its life. From an angling perspective, every individual who has owned and enjoyed using Shimano tackle has a reason to thank a Japanese visionary named Shozaburo Shimano, who in 1921 declared “I aim to make Shimano’s products the best in Kansai, then the best in Japan, and finally the best in the world." For over 80 years, Shimano has concentrated on precision engineering, one step at a time. Creating the most innovative products and processes you can hold in your hand today.
