Featuring a Hagane body, Stella SW boasts a highly rigid metal construction. This means improved impact resistance and less body flex. At the heart of the reel, state of the art Hagane gears are cold forged for lasting durability and smoothness. Infinity Drive technology offers an improved winding experience, optimizing winding torque by 26%. Silent Drive further improves smoothness by eliminating worm shaft and drive gear play. An all new Shimano Heatsink Drag improves performance by transferring heat away from the spool, reducing spool surface temperature by up to 100 degrees. X-Protect and X-Shield ensure your investment is guarded from the harsh elements of a saltwater environment so you can fish with confidence. 2019 Stella SW is lighter, more powerful and more reliable than ever before.
