Shimano's Stella SWB saltwater spinning reel series is an upgrade to an already proven model that provides the ultimate in saltwater protection and performance. The basis for the design is a rigid aluminum body that is sealed and shielded from saltwater intrusion by a two-pronged process that also results in smoother rotor function. The use of rigid materials and proprietary coatings extends throughout the reel, which also features the strongest gearing, handle and bearings ever found on a Stella. The result is a solid platform that will not flex under the extremes of fighting big fish, which in turn allows the Stella's new drag design to work with unprecedented smoothness and control even at the highest drag settings. New sizes and specialized power and speed gearings make any fish that swims the big blue a legitimate target. This model features an extra high-speed gearing that delivers 53 inches of line per crank and offers a max drag of 55.1 pounds, a great combination for fishing topwater lures for tuna.
