- 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

Stella SW has always lead the fishing world in durability, power and operability. New Stella SW builds on that tradition. Available in 8000, 10000 and 14000 sizes, Stella SW brings unmatched strength, reliability and ease of use to serious saltwater anglers. 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. 8000 Size models are for braided line use only.Hagane Gear:
With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.Hagane Body:
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.X-Protect:
By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channeling, labyrinth construction, X Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.X-Tough Drag:
X-Tough Drag with its dramatically enhanced smoothness, control and toughness anticipates the vigorous speed of Blue-Fin Tuna and Giant Tuna.X-Rigid Rotor:
The POWER ALUMINUM BODY, X-RIGID ROTOR, X-RIGID BAIL, and X-RIGID HANDLE combine to provide ultimate rigidity & eliminate loss of power caused by reel flex.Waterproof Drag:
