The Shimano Stella SWB is the leader in saltwater spin fishing reels and is now available to South African anglers.  There aren’t enough words to describe how good the Shimano Stella SWB reels are, phenomenal, unreal, amazing, out of this world these are just some of the superlatives used by anglers to describe the Shimano Stella SWB

As we move forward, technology is changing the face of everything and fishing is no exception the technological advancements of the Shimano Stella SWB is beyond belief.  With technological advancements in gear design and production, drag technology and power and Shimano’s brand new X-Technology, the Shimano Stella SWB is in a category of its own when it comes to spinning reels. It’s scary!

And no more does ‘strength’ have to equate to ‘weight’.  Consequently, we have the use of High Rigidity Aluminium in the body, which won’t twist or warp, and keeps features like X-Ship, which through its precision-cut gears and increased bearing support increases cranking power.  An incredible 14 SA-RB bearings, a more rigid aluminium handle, and a one-piece aluminium shaft with stainless steel core help immeasurably in this regard, and provide more power under load.

When you have a massive dogtooth, southern Bluefin Tuna, Giant Trevally or Blue Marlin hooked up and disappearing over the horizon or aiming for the bottom of the ocean, the X-Tough Drag, with increased washer size and Coil Wave Spring continues to deliver drag consistency at every setting and for the full duration of the fight.

The most extreme of fishing conditions and situations is where the Shimano Stella SWBs demonstrate its thoroughbred.  X-Shield and X-Protect gasket and rubber seals keep saltwater intrusion at bay, no matter how badly you the angler might be getting slammed!  Casting heavy and high resistance lures like metal jigs, stickbaits and poppers long distances with accuracy and efficiency has never been easier, thanks to a combination of X-Rigid rotor, SR one-piece titanium bail arm wire, as well as a SW Diamond Like Carbon bail roller to cut down heat buildup.

The only reason there are no better spin reels than the Stella SWBs is that Shimano hasn’t invented them yet!
