Stella is SHIMANO’s ultimate spinning reel – evolved. Featuring a remarkable amount of new technology, the Stella reaches new heights of excellence and offers unparalleled performance for anglers wanting the very best. If you are the type of angler who wants the very best, without compromise, the latest version of the Stella is for you. Building on its iconic status, Stella has been through an evolutionary re-design with a new range of technologies. These developments are a work of engineering genius and touch just about every part of the reel including the gearing, line management and drag. They are developments that will make your fishing more efficient, more effective and ultimately more enjoyable. SHIMANO calls it ‘Infinity Evolution’… but to anglers across the world, it will be known simply as Stella. Fishing with the Stella is an unforgettable experience, enhanced by the introduction of three new ‘Infinity’ technologies.InfinityXross delivers a more durable gear construction than the highly acclaimed Hagane gear. This offers more durability, especially when under extreme pressure, resulting in increased lifespan of the reel.InfinityLoop is an ultra slow spool oscillation, with improved line lay. This measurably reduces line friction when casting, giving better casting performance.InfinityDrive produces powerful yet lightweight rotation, especially under heavy loads. In extreme situations, you can still maintain constant, consistent cranking pressure. For trouble-free line management, a completely new feature called Anti-Twist Fin has been developed that controls the pressure on the line that goes through the line roller onto the spool. And if all of that isn’t enough, there is a new drag system called Duracross which offers improved drag smoothness, durability and hooking power. The Stella is available in 12 models to cover all uses and preferences and is also saltwater safe. Stella - the pinnacle of engineering achievement, for anglers who want the very best.
