Shimano Stella FI

  • Save $0

The Shimano Stella FI series is about finesse, making them perfect for light line applications in both fresh and salt water, from inland lakes to the coast.

Like all Stellas, there’s a heap of new technology poured into this most recent release. Micromodule Gear Technology delivers a new level of smoothness and reduced vibration for easier winding and better contact with the lure being retrieved. This is brought about by superior gear design and alignment, yet with the same strength and durability we’ve come to expect from Stellas. S-Direct Gear means more precise gear component alignment, reducing movement of critical parts within the reel. Coreprotect involves a sealed bail arm line roller, rotor and roller clutch, so the Stella FIs can be fished in a variety of environments without being affected by sand, dirt or water. G Free Body means the reel’s centre of gravity has been moved closer to the rod by positioning the worm shaft oscillation mechanism at the top of the reel body for less winding fatigue.

As befitting a reel series like this, to keep everything moving smoothly, each Stella has 13 SA-RB bearings and an all-new design anti-reverse bearing, which generates less friction and lighter handle rotation. Additionally, there’s a Titanium Bail Arm, a larger, ergonomically shaped drag knob for adjusting the new Coil Wave Spring Drag, a longer spool shape for greater casting distance, and a re-designed line clip for when the reel is not in use. These are quite simply unparalleled light line reels.
