Shimano Stella FJ Spinning Reels
The Shimano Stella FJ Spinning Reels are packed rich with the latest and greatest of Shimano technologies to improve on the legendary platform the Stella is. The Stella FJ manages to provide a smoother, more efficient, and more durable package than the previous generation which was already genuinely hard to believe improvements could have been made.
In the Stella FJ, Shimano's Silent Drive technology was implemented to eliminate any looseness, gaps, and vibrations between components in the drive section as well as others. This provides for tighter tolerances, less play, more comfort, and a quieter if not silent reel. Micro Module Gear II is the most advanced gear technology Shimano has done. Its Shimano's pursuit at the ideal shape of each gear tooth, which ultimately provides for less gear noise and improves smoothness. X-Protect, one of the most important technologies for saltwater anglers, provides for 5x more water resistance than the previous Stella. This provides for more increased longevity of the reel for years of smooth operation.
