The Shimano Stella SW C Spinning Reel is the pinnacle of Shimano's engineering might, built for the highest performance to tackle the biggest fish.
The SW C brings further upgrades on this incredible reel. Infinity Drivebrings even lighter and more powerful cranking and the Heatsink Drag (10000 and 14000 sizes)further strengthens one of the most powerful drags around.
Waterproofing is now rated at IPX8thanks to X-Protect and X-Shieldwith the aluminum Hagane Body functioning as a rigid and waterproof shell. Special X-Protect rubber gaskets incorporated into the line roller make this critical component ten times more durable than the previous model.
The HG models are designed for both casting and jigging, whereas PG is geared for jigging applications and XG for saltwater casting.
The ‘Heat Sink Panel’, where the heat generated by drag is released, stops any decrease in drag performance, due to thermal sagging, by around 50 percent.The ‘Insulation Sheet’, which blocks heat transfer to the spool, prevents spool temperatures from increasing by around 30 percent. The evolution of the new drag system is easier on the line and more stable than ever. Featured in models 10000, 14000.
The new Stella SW employs 'Infinity Drive’ where the pinion gear inner does not make contact with the main shaft, as a high-sliding bushing supports the main shaft. With this new structure, sliding resistance of the main shaft is drastically reduced.In addition to this, a special skidding coating on the main shaft helps to further reduce sliding resistance. InfinityDrive cuts handle rotation torque by about 30 percent in comparison to the conventional system, and makes the reel more powerful.
X-Protect was developed for stopper bearing protection in the previous model and provided high-level waterproofing. The new Stella SW employs X-Protect for its line roller as well and further improves its waterproofing performance.The new structure protects bearings inside the line roller from the harsh saltwater environment, and bearing durability is ten times greater than conventional designs.
With amazing strength and durability, the HAGANE Gear is at the very heart of the reel. Shimano, through the application of state-of-the-art technologies, gives you the long-lasting smoothness and pleasure that you feel when you first use a reel, over and over again. No cutting work is applied to the teeth of the drive gear. Instead the entire surface is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and then formed by Shimano's cold forging technology. The result is assured resilience. It's the fruit of Shimano's inexhaustible pursuit for durability; the strength and power of forged metal continues to represent the fundamental concept of Shimano reels.
