The all new for 2018 Shimano Stella FJ takes the Shimano spinning reel lineup to new heights, now even smoother, more efficient, and durable than the previous generation, the Stella FI. Featuring Micro Module II, the all new gear design and gear teeth surface provides for amazing smoothness and nearly doubles the strength of Shimano’s already unmatched gear durability. X-Protect also makes this Stella up to 5X more water resistant than its predecessor, which 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.
