STELLA 2500 FI Spinning
The Shimano Stella 2500FI release about style and finesse, making this reel perfect for light line applications in both fresh and salt water, from prestine rivers to the expansive New Zealand coastline.â€¨â€¨Like all Stella reels, there's a heap of new technology poured into this most recent release. Micromodule Gear Technology delivers a new level of smoothness and reduced vibration for easier winding and better contact with the lure being retrieved. This is brought about by superior gear design and alignment, yet with the same strength and durability we've come to expect from the Shimano Stella range.
S-Direct Gear means more precise gear component alignment, reducing movement of critical parts within the reel. Coreprotect involves a sealed bail arm line roller, rotor and roller clutch, so the Stella FIs can be fished in a variety of environments without being affected by sand, dirt or water.
G Free Body means the reel's centre of gravity has been moved closer to the rod by positioning the worm shaft oscillation mechanism at the top of the reel body for less winding fatigue. As befitting a reel series like this, to keep everything moving smoothly, each Stella has 13 SA-RB bearings and an all-new design anti-reverse bearing, which generates less friction and lighter handle rotation. Additionally, there's a Titanium Bail Arm, a larger, ergonomically shaped drag knob for adjusting the new Coil Wave Spring Drag, a longer spool shape for greater casting distance, and a re-designed line clip for when the reel is not in use.â€¨â€¨The Stella 2500FI is quite simply in a class all of it's own.
|These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.|
|By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation; less effort and power giving ...|
|Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds for the Propulsion Spool Lip design. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape to prevent loss of energy during the cast while pr...|
|After the anodisation process is finished, a second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth to-the-touch finish. A reel wi...|
