Model Options:


  • Power aluminum body, X-Rigid rotor, X-Rigid body, and X-Rigid handle – These components are all constructed of metal
  • X-Tough Drag is known to provide a very smooth and strong drag to go up against hard fighting fish such as tuna and amberjacks that love to run hard
  • X-Ship technology - there are two bearings located one on each end of the pinion gear that provides support. This means that the gears are able to stay in alignment when they are under a heavy load
  • X-Shield and X-Protect to provide the best waterproofing protection
The STELLA SW needs no introduction: its Shimanos most high-end, durable, strong and powerful spinning reel which is recognized for its quality and durability by anglers all over the world. The reel has been improved on many points: it is even stronger, more though, more durable and more powerful. The STELLA SW is built to be very strong and powerful, making it possible to fish for big salt water species with spinning tackle. The range includes many different sizes and gear ratios for many different techniques and purposes.

HAGANE Gear: The HAGANE Gear is produced by Shimano's coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining. This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness, and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads.

HAGANE Body: The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminum or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rock solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.

Silent Drive: Removed 'clicking' sound and 'handle play' and overall improved smooth reeling.

INFINITY DRIVE: INFINITY DRIVE is a new construction that eliminates sliding resistance and realizes light winding in both load and no-load conditions. INFINITY DRIVE is a non-contact construction where the inside of the pinion gear does not touch the main shaft. This reduction in sliding resistance is achieved by the application of a special low friction bushing which holds the main shaft and in addition a by the application of a special surface treatment to the main shaft itself. Handle rotation torque is reduced by approximately 30% compared to the conventional X-SHIP construction.

HEATSINK-DRAG: During drag operation accumulated heat in the drag mechanism reduces drag force in addition the increase of spool temperature can damage PE lines. The conventional X TOUGH drag realizes an overwhelming improvement in both drag performance and durability with a revolutionary structure in which the drag mechanism part is located at the lower part of the spool. Shimano's HEATSINK DRAG is the evolution of the conventional X TOUGH drag and manages the heat efficiently in two ways. Firstly, heat is released through a heat sink panel on the bottom of the spool resulting in 50% more drag force retainment. Secondly, an insulation sheet in between the drag mechanism and the spool surface area results in a 30% lower spool temperature.

X-Shield: By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points, including the reel body and lid joint and the contact point of the spool and drag knob, possible water ingress is blocked. This double protection provides high reliability and durability to the STELLA SW when used in extreme saltwater conditions.

X-PROTECT: The contact type triple lip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body. In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the 'silky smooth rotation capacity', the vital feature of STELLA SW, exceptional water resistance, has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray.

X-TOUGH DRAG: The drag system of the new STELLA SW has advanced enormously in terms of toughness, smoothness, and performance. The basic drag performance has been extensively reviewed and each of the metal and carbon drag washers show excellent heat resistance and durability. Through an indepth study of the thickness and frictional force of each component within the drag system, the best combinations from optimum performance parameters have been found for each model and size. Further, the structure supporting the middle surface of the spool, from both the top and bottom, efficiently disperses the load, securing a smooth and stable drag force. Inside the drag knob, a coiled wave spring is mounted to allow anglers to make fine adjustment, even when under a heavy load.

ARC Spool: Shimano ARC Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid.

E.I. Surface Treatment: E.I. Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation.

S A-RB: Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt, or dust.

One Piece Bail: The one piece bail wire has no gap for line to snag on during normal operation. Made of Stainless Steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get onto the line roller quicker.
