Shimano has introduced the latest incarnation of their flagship iconic spinning reel: the Shimano Stella STL4000XGFI, as part of their Shimano Spinning Series.
Packed with the most advanced and state of the art technologies that Shimano has at their disposal, the brand has successfully done the incredible feat of coming up with one of the smoothest and most balanced reel that the world has ever seen.
Shimano Stella Features:
Engineers of Shimano improved the torque and power of the latest Shimano Stella several notches higher than what was thought possible before as far as spinning reels are concerned. And if this is not enough, they even boosted the durability and virtually eliminated the chances of water entering the reel.
Shimano fishing will never be the same again with the best fishing reel yet. It boasts of an updated G-free Body which moved the oscillation system from its traditional location, which is under the drive gear and this time putting it near the reel’s center. This has greatly enhanced the balance of the wheel as the weight is move closer to your hands, getting rid of traces of wobble. The newly incorporated Micro Module Gear System also offers a much better alignment and more torque and power, made possible by the use of more micro teeth on both pinion gear and main gear.
The upgraded S-Drive Direct System also allows the handle to screw directly to the drive gear to offer a pure power transfer, making it ounce for ounce among the most powerful spinning reels that were ever created. This has also eliminated the back play, with Core Protect from Shimano delivering a wonderful durability through keeping the water out of the inner workings of the reel, something that greatly increases the life of your gear. With Shimano Stella STL4000XGFI being precision-engineered to even the tiniest tolerances possible, this offers a next generation performance that makes it stay ahead of the game.
