Shimano Stella SFI Spinning Reel
As Shimano's flagship reel, the Stella FI is loaded with top-of-the-line technologies, making it one of the highest-performing reels around. X-Ship double-bearing-supported pinion gear boosts cranking power and gear efficiency, significantly reducing handle-rotation torque. S-Direct Gear technology improves gear-component alignment, virtually eliminating handle play for an incredibly solid feel. G Free Body technology shifts the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod, reducing fatigue caused by casting. Micromodule gear technology reduces gear vibration; as a result, strikes are more noticeable. Coreprotect makes the reel water-resistant and better for use on saltwater. 13+1 bearing system features 13 A-RB® stainless steel bearings for an exceptionally smooth retrieve. 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. Machined-aluminum spool with titanium lip. Corrosion-blocking Electronic Ionization surface treatment. Lightweight magnesium frame and sideplates. Nonslip Septon® grips. One-piece bail, AR-C light spool, machined-aluminum handle, titanium bail wire and improved line clip. Easy-access maintenance ports. Rated for freshwater or saltwater, and can be used with mono, fluorocarbon and braided lines.
