The best just got better. Introducing the newest incarnation of Shimano’s iconic flagship spinning reel - the Shimano Stella FI Series.
Packed with the latest and most advanced technologies Shimano has at its disposal, Shimano was able to do the impossible - make the smoothest most balanced reel in the world even more so. The Shimano engineers also increased new Stella FI’s power and torque far beyond what was previously thought possible with a spinning reel. And if that wasn’t enough, they stepped up its durability as well by virtually eliminating water from entering the reel.
Its new G-Free Body moves the oscillation system from where it is traditionally housed - below the drive gear - and places it closer to the center of the reel. This greatly enhances the reel’s balance by moving weight closer to your hands, eliminating any hint of wobble. The new Micro Module Gear System also provides improved gear alignment, as well as, more power and torque thanks to the use of more micro teeth on the main gear and pinion gear.
The new 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 new S-Direct Drive System also eliminates all back play, and Shimano’s Core Protect delivers a major upgrade in durability by keeping water out of the reel’s inner workings and thus greatly increasing its life. Precision-engineered to the smallest tolerances possible, the Shimano Stella FI Spinning Reel delivers next generation performance and stays at the top of the class.
