STELLA SW Spinning

The the Stella SWB is benchmark in spinning reel! This stunning family of reels is offered in an encompassing range of sizes and has been meticulously engineered to handle nearly any sport fish found in New Zealand's prolific waters and also suited for the kiwi angler looking for fishing adventure offshore.

The Shimano SWB range of spinning reels has the power of X-Ship, which enhances power transmission through the gear - this results in increased cranking power with an extremely smooth feel when jigging and casting lures for extended periods of time.

The Stella SWB series is available in eight models which includes the SW4000XG, SW5000HG, SW8000HG, SW10000PG, SW14000XG, SW18000HG, SW20000PG and SW30000 to give angler's a wide size options, capacity and retrieve ratios meaning this range has something for everyone - from inshore species such as snapper to the biggest kingfish that swim to the tough broadbill swordfish the Stella SWB series of spinning reels have it covered.

Shimano's SW-X Concept brings together power, rigidity, toughness, drag performance and water resistance, focusing on retrieving power, strength and durability.

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.
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
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, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement Spinning Using a special cold forged aluminum drive gear and a hardened brass pinion gear. Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before. In fact, testing has shown that this combination is more durable than an all-stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that Sh...
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
Superior aircraft-grade Aluminium material. A6063 aluminium is used for it's increased corrosion resistance and A7075 is used for its extremely low mass resulting in lower start-up inertia.
Building upon the successes of Fluidrive, which provides extremely tight tolerances and control in the cutting process, Fluidrive II polishes the gear surface to maximize tooth contact. This increases the efficiency of the retrieve for more power with less effort.
