SHIMANO Stella SW Spinning Reel
"Absolute Power" is the aim of Stella SW. Shimano is using it's latest and most innovative technologies to complete the "SW-X Concept" which takes this generation Stella SW to an all new level for anglers.
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.
X Protect - By combining their water repellent coating and their specially designed, water channeling, labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
X Rigid Rotor - The shape and thickness of the aluminum rotor creates high rigidity that results in more fish fighting power. Increased mass of the aluminum rotor generates more inertia resulting in easier fishing of heavy jigs and high resistance lures.
X Rigid Bail - The use of a large diameter titanium alloy wire loop increases the overall hardness. In addition to excellent toughness and impact resistance, titanium alloy materials bring unparalleled lightweight and corrosion resistance.
