If you're a hardcore saltwater angler, you need a hardcore reel! That's why you need the Shimano Stella SW Saltwater Spinning Reel! This reel has been crafted from the ground up to hold up to the brutal saltwater environments. Shimano designed this reel with their X-Shield technology, which ensures that the structure of the reel is entirely water-resistant and highly durable, giving you peace of mind even in the harshest of saltwater conditions. The bearings also feature shields on both sides that help reduce the possibility of sand or salt interrupting the bearing's rotation.

Not only is this reel made to survive, but it's also built to work! The Hagane Body is made of solid metal, which gives it an impressive strength. That rigid body prevents flex and allows you to put all your power into reeling that catch in! The Hagane gears are designed the same way! These gears are never cut, but instead are cold-forged to allow them to be flawlessly smooth and robust. When you take on saltwater environments, bring the best, bring the Shimano Stella SW Saltwater Spinning Reel!

  • HAGANE Body
    • The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness 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 Power Aluminum Body, X-RIGID Rotor, X-RIGID Bail and X-RIGID Handle combine to provide ultimate rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by reel flex.
    • X-Shield & X-Protect combine to provide extreme water resistance in the harshest conditions.
  • X-SHIP
    • X-SHIP provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.
    • By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channeling, labyrinth construction, X Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
  • X-RIGID Bail
    • The Power Aluminum Body, X-RIGID Rotor, X-RIGID Bail and X-RIGID Handle combine to provide ultimate rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by reel flex.
  • X-RIGID Gear
    • In order to support the tremendous power and rigidity, Shimano developed the X-RIGID GEAR and introduced it into the heart of Stella SW's aluminum body.
  • X-RIGID Handle
    • The Power Aluminum Body, X-RIGID Rotor, X-RIGID Bail and X-RIGID Handle combine to provide ultimate rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by reel flex.
  • S A-RB
    • These bearings have been through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.
  • Heatsink Drag
    • A revolutionary structure located at the bottom of the spool, achieving overwhelming drag performance and improved durability. The heat sink generated by the drag section dissipates the heat generated outside the spool by about 50% to reduce the drag force drop due to heat. In addition, the "heat insulation sheet" which shuts off the heat flowing to the line on the spool, reducing spool line temperature by 30%.
  • Aero Wrap II
    • This two-speed oscillation system layers the line onto the spool in a crisscross pattern that reduces line-to-line friction for longer casts. AeroWrap reels utilize a patented worm gear design to move the spool upward quickly and downward slowly to wind the line in a precise pattern, reducing friction, and giving smoother, longer casting ability.
  • Waterproof Drag
    • With the use of rubber gaskets the drag is sealed against intrusion of the elements such as water and dust.
  • Infinity Drive
    • The new main shaft supporting structure improves winding torque by 30% while allowing incredibly smooth and light rotation. This essentially means having the benefit of a quick line retrieve HG ratio reel but with the power and winding torque similar to that of a PG.
  • 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.
  • Cross Carbon Drag
    • This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
  • Propulsion Line Management System
    • The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion spool lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.
  • Silent Drive
    • From the fundamental, whole body design to the most intricate parts of the drive train, including the drive gear, wormshaft, wormshaft pin and wormshaft gear, every piece has been carefully reviewed, and the smallest clearance gaps and wobbles have been eliminated to the highest tolerances.
