Stella is Shimano's most advanced spinning reel. With a significant amount of new technology, the Stella achieves new heights of perfection and provides unrivalled performance for anglers who demand the best. If you're the sort of angler that demands nothing less than the finest, the Stella's latest incarnation is for you. Stella has undergone an evolutionary re-design with a new variety of technology, building on its legendary reputation. These advancements are technical marvels that influence nearly every aspect of the reel, including gearing, line management, and drag. They are innovations that will improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and enjoyment of your fishing.
It's dubbed 'Infinity Evolution' by Shimano, However, it will be known simply as Stella to anglers all around the world. Fishing with the Stella is a memorable experience, made even better by the addition of three new 'Infinity' technologies.
InfinityXross offers a more robust gear structure than Hagane. This increases the reel's resilience, especially under intense strain, resulting in a longer lifespan. InfinityLoop is a spool oscillation that is extremely slow and has excellent line lay. When casting, this significantly minimises line friction, resulting in improved casting performance. Under large loads, InfinityDrive delivers forceful yet lightweight rotation. You can still maintain steady, consistent cranking pressure under severe scenarios. 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.
CI4: CI4 is a Shimano original material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material and is 2.5x more rigid than its predecessor. While improving lightness and rigidity, reel bodies and rotors built with CI4+ are further reduced in size and weight.
G-Free Body: G-Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand, the G-Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
Hagane Body: The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.
Hagane Gear: With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of most Shimano reels. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives anglers the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that is felt when anglers first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear during fabrication, 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. HAGANE Gear is 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.
Infinity Drive: Infinity Drive is a new main shaft supporting structure that improves winding torque and allows for incredibly smooth and light rotation. This means anglers will benefit from the quick line retrieve of a HG ratio reel while also having the power and winding torque similar to that of a PG ratio reel.
Long Stroke Spool: The Long Stroke Spool has a longer stroke compared to conventional spool designs. This ultimately produces a smoother line lay during retrieval and translates into increased casting distance for anglers.
MicroModule Gear II: Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology further advances MicroModule Gear II with a state-of-the-art gear-tooth surface design. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analyzed and updated from the ground up in Shimano’s pursuit of perfection to further improve the smooth gear feeling and reducing sound.
One-Piece Bail: One-Piece Bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. The seamless design reduces friction and decreases the chance of tangles or the line catching on the bail arm.
Propulsion Line Management System: The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion Spool Lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, Shimano’s new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while also preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
Rigid Support Drag: By strengthening the spool support of the main shaft, the play and fluctuation of the spool during drag operation are suppressed. The Rigid Support Drag allows smooth and consistent drag delivery, even under high load.
S A-RB: S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting rotation of the bearing.
Water Resistant Drag:With the use of rubber gaskets the drag is sealed against intrusion of the elements such as water and dust.
X-Protect: X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation. By combining Shimano’s water-repellent coating with a water-channeling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides added durability in tough conditions.
X-Ship: X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit of X-Ship technology is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This further benefits anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.
