Stella FI

Hidden beneath the graceful, flowing lines of the new Stella is a combination of Shimano innovation, technology and engineering brilliance that delivers unparalleled fishing performance. Almost every component of the new Stella has been redesigned and improved. New gearing systems, bearings and even the positioning of internal components combine to produce a reel that not only feels better in your hand, it meets all of the challenges demanded of it with assured confidence. To fully appreciate the innovation of Stella you have to experience it first hand. The finesse of the rotor when energising your lures or baits, the smoothness of the drag when playing fish, the power of the gearing when it's time to show them who's boss. Whilst Stella undoubtedly takes reel design, innovation and performance to a new level, it takes the joy of fishing even further and is an experience that once savoured will never be forgotten.
