Shimano Stella !

made in Japan
The Shimano Stella 8000 SWB HG Spinning Reel is proof that Shimano’s setting even higher standards for reel technology. This reel combines the latest in gear technology with top-of-the-line materials. It’s constructed using aircraft-grade aluminium making it tough and lightweight. The Shimano Stella 8000 SWB HG Spinning Reel is your partner in taking on big fish and reeling them in quickly.

S-Anti-Reverse Bearings
These bearings have been through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.

CF Aluminium cold forged spool
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminium graphite spools.

Super stopper II
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay. This provides you with instant hook setting power. In some reels, the Super Power II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.

By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation.

Paladin gear durability enhancement
Your reel stays nice and shiny like you just got it out of the box! Reels equipped with the Paladin gear durability enhancement maintains that smoothness Shimano is famous for. The combination of cold forged aluminium drive gear and hardened brass pinion gear makes the reel more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrail.

Aero Wrap II
Aero wrap is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during cast while providing longer casts than other oscillation systems. So casting distance increases with less effort required.

Enjoy smooth reel rotation, every time. The Dyna-balance feature eliminates wobble during retrieve by counter balancing the roto to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, Shimano is able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations casued by the reel.

Superior Aircraft-Grade Aluminium
A6063 aluminium is used for increased corrosion resistance and A7075 is used for its extremely low mass resulting in lower start-up inertia.

Fluidrive II
Building upon the successes of Fluid Drive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface tp maximise tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.
