The smoothest and most efficient drivetrain in a spinning reel is now even smoother and more efficient with improved durability. Introducing the Shimano Stella FJ. The new MicroModule II provides a new ideal gear design and gear teeth surface for amazing smoothness and nearly twice the strength of Shimano's already unmatched gear durability. X-Protect makes the new Stella up to five times more resistant to the long-term damaging effects of water than the previous model, so every turn of the handle is sure to feel as good as new — even after years of use. Plus, new SilentDrive, Long Stroke Spool, tangle-proof rotor design, and a host of other new high-end features mean Stella truly represents a benchmark in Shimano spinning reels.
