Set a new benchmark for spinning performance on the ocean with the latest Stella fishing reels. The Shimano Stella FJ takes the Shimano spinning reel lineup to new heights. The latest models are even smoother, more efficient and more durable than the previous generation (the Stella FI). Micro Module II technology is the heart of the all-new gear design and gear teeth surface. The design provides for amazing smoothness and nearly doubles the strength of Shimano's already unmatched gear durability.
X-Protect also makes this Stella up to five times more water-resistant than its predecessor. This ensures each turn of the handle will feel as good as it did right out of the box for years of trouble-free use. Yet another major upgrade is the all-new Silent Drive, which eliminates play at the micron level and increases tolerances to a level never seen before in a Stella reel. On top of these three revolutionary upgrades is a long stroke spool and tangle-proof rotor design that truly takes the Stella FJ to a new level and sets the benchmark for Shimano spinning reels moving forward.
TackleDirect offers five models of the Stella FJ for anglers who want to chase any saltwater species. Smaller reels such as the Shimano Stella 2500 and 1000 are good for striper, redfish, salmon and other small- to mid-size game fish. If you want to go after bluefin tuna and giant porgies, trust a Stella FJ 5000 with its high gear ratio and line capacity. All of these reels have super-strong Hagane gearing, a tangle-free bail, E.I. anti-corrosion treatment and other features the Stella is known for.
