The Shimano Stella SW represents the pinnacle of innovation for Shimano reel technology and fish-fighting performance.
The new Stella 4000 SW HGC spinning reel comes with significant upgrades that deliver Infinite Power. Infinity Drive has been introduced to complement the existing X-Ship system to deliver light and powerful winding. This development removes any contact the inner part of the pinion gear has with the main shaft, as a high-sliding bushing supports it. A special skid coating has been incorporated to further reduce sliding resistance. As a result, handle rotation torque is reduced by 26% when compared to the conventional system, so winding, even under extreme load, is now even easier.
A waterproof rating of IPX8 is achieved through X-Protect and X-shield with the aluminium Hagane Body acting as a rigid and super tough outer shell. A new and improved rotor design has made the reels lighter than the previous Stella SW models. The HG models are designed for both casting and jigging, whereas the PG is geared for jigging and the XG for saltwater casting.
