 >  > Shimano Stella FE Spinning Reels

The Shimano Stella FE Spinning Reels feature Shimano's new X-Ship feature. The result of using X-Ship makes the handle easier to turn with or without load. Because less effort goes into turning the handle you can detect even the lightest "tick" bites.

The Shimano Stella FE spinning reels also feature state-of-the-art technology coupled with the reliability and strength Shimano is known for. The Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement System will keep these reels running like new longer. The Propulsion Line Management System is the result of tens of thousands of computer simulated casts, resulting in a farther casting reel that allows the line to flow off of the spool in smaller loops. This means less time worrying about wind knots and backlashes and more time in the water.

The Shimano Stella FE series offers smooth, silent, and strong, reels that are designed for years of fishing use. The knowledge of fishing and the minds of Shimano's engineers have given anglers a feature packed reel that is ready for any challenge. The Shimano Stella FE is simply one of the finest spinning reels offered on the planet!

  • Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement
