SHIMANO ULTIMATE SALTWATER SPINNING REEL STELLA SW. Stella SW-B The STELLA SW focuses on absolute power. To achieve it, toughness, cranking power, rigidity, water resistance and drag performances have all been upgraded.
Synergy generated by all these technologies combine to prevent loss of power input from the handle and create enormous cranking power. In order to support this power, extreme toughness from X-Rigid Gear is introduced at the heart of the reel's body.
X-Tough Drag, with its dramatically enhanced heat resistance and toughness, anticipates the blazing speed of bluefin tuna and giant trevally. Drag performance has been made even smoother, further assuring its reliability. In addition to these epoch-making mechanisms, focus is also placed on water resistance, in order to maintain their initial performance and toughness. The dependable X-Shield system has been applied throughout, and X-Protect provided at the roller clutch assembly - a crucial area for water resistance. The HAGANE Drive Gear is produced by Shimano's coldforging technology, without the need for additional machining.This delivers a longlasting smoothness, strength, lightness and power at the very heart of the reel. Traditional diecast, machined gears are less durable under heavy loads. XShip is a combination of features that work together to create much greater efficiency. By positioning the pinion gear close to the centre line of the large diameter drive gear, more power is transferred from the handle to the rotor. The pinion gear is also supported by two Shimano ARB roller bearings. The HAGANE Body is produced from highrigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
By providing dependable sealing structures and gaskets at necessary points, including the reel body and lid joint and the contact point of the spool and drag knob, possible water ingress is blocked. This double protection provides high reliability and durability to the STELLA SW when used in extreme saltwater conditions. The contact type triplelip structure is introduced to the roller clutch, the pivotal point concerning water resistance. In this structure, the first lip prevents water from entering through the space between the rotor and the body.
In addition, the special grease between the second and third lip where it makes contact with the rotor collar located at the upper part of the roller clutch not only resists water from entering but also minimizes friction resistance. Without jeopardizing the'silky smooth rotation capacity', the vital feature of STELLA SW, exceptional water resistance, has been achieved to withstand the crashing and splashing of waves and spray. The drag system of the new STELLA SW has advanced enormously in terms of toughness, smoothness and performance.The basic drag performance has been extensively reviewed and each of the metal and carbon drag washers show excellent heat resistance and durability. Through an indepth study of the thickness and frictional force of each component within the drag system, the best combinations for optimum performance parameters have been found for each model and size. Further, the structure supporting the middle surface of the spool, from both the top and bottom, efficiently disperses the load, securing a smooth and stable drag force. Inside the drag knob, a coiled wave spring is mounted to allow anglers to make fine adjustment, even when under a heavy load. Shimano ARC Spool is a patented spool design with an angled spool lip. This design enables the line to leave the spool with less friction and in smaller coils resulting in longer more accurate casts. ARC spools are proven to reduce backlash and wind knots when using braid. I Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation. Rigid Support Drag eliminates spool movement and wobble, even at light drag settings.
The result is an incredibly smooth drag even at extremely light settings. Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARB ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt or dust. The onepiece bail wire has no gap for line to snag on during normal operation.Made of Stainless Steel, it reduces friction and allows the line to get onto the line roller quicker. Aero Wrap and the advanced Aero Wrap II is a worm gear oscillation system with a specially designed pitch to create optimal oscillation speeds. This provides superb uniform line lay to reduce loss of energy during the cast. Aero Wrap II is considered one of the best line lay systems in the world. Cold Forged aluminium is used for some'round' reels, fly reels and is also used for many types of spool. Made from one single piece of aluminium Cold Forging produces great strength. Diecast aluminium is used for many types of reel and is most common on fixed spool reel bodies and rotors. It is also used for spools on P4 fixed spool reels and come baitcasting models.
DynaBalance reduces wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing Shimano are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create eliminate vibrations. Easy Maintenance is a small oil lubrication port that enables direct lubrication of the inner workings of a reel with approved Shimano lubricant. Some highend Shimano reels have a line roller lubrication option.
The key friction area on most fixed spool reels is where the spool drive shaft meets the pinion. Shimano designers have overcome this by reducing a large percentage of surface area contact and incorporating bearings on either side of the shaft. The resultant design leaves the shaft in a'floating' position, considerably improving efficiency and longevity.The precision engineered main Hypergear transmits more power from the handle to the rotor. One speed Oscillation the spool moves at a consistent speed. The new STELLA SW introduces high rigidity aluminium for its body material. This housing material emphasizes the STELLA SW concept to protect the reel's interior from the extreme saltwater environment, creating a body with excellent toughness. This feature provides tremendous certainty in challenging saltwater fishing conditions, enabling anglers to focus on their big prey with confidence. The special grooved design of the Shimano Power Roller significantly reduces line twist and is a big advantage when using thin mono and braid. Super Stopper II eliminates backward movement and free play in the handle when the reel is set in antireverse. The use of thicker titanium wire dramatically increased the rigidity and impact resistance of the bail arm.
The nature of the metal makes the bail lighter and provides excellent corrosion resistance. A superreliable bail system has been created by combining a onepiece bail wire, an SW barrier coat big roller reinforced with Diamond Like Carbon (DLC), and a highstrength hard coated arm cam. The most rigid rotary assembly ever has been realised through synergy with XRIGID ROTOR. Ultimate toughness was sought for the main gear to withstand the maximum drag needed when tackling offshore pursuits. The difference is obvious; the new main gear is thicker and stronger.
With its additional special surface coating, a maximum of 38% greater durability is achieved over past STELLA reels. This is a super tough gear suitable for the heart of the new STELLA SW, designed for perfection in the most extreme situations. In the new STELLA SW, the handle shaft is now integrated with a onepiece collar. This allinone structure enhances rigidity of the shaft casing, while in addition a new configuration is adopted for the mating surface with the handle shank. This allows the shaft casing to thoroughly and accurately encase the top of the handle shank, thereby increasing the rigidity of the entire handle.For 5000 size reels and larger, primarily used for power fishing, a coldforged handle shank is used to prevent flexing and distortion while preventing internal torsion. With these new features, handle rigidity tests show a 35% increase in rigidity. Even under high load, the energy applied by an angler can be directly transmitted to cranking power.
Considering the harsh environment of saltwater fishing, aluminium was selected for the rotor material because of its excellent durability, rigidity and corrosion resistance. Thorough attention was given to the thickness of every detail to create a strong rotor with assured toughness. While protecting the reel's main body against impact during fishing and transportation, the rotor brings out the potential of all features such as X Tough Drag.
The rotary inertia typical of aluminium generates the powerful and smooth performance of the new STELLA SW and effortlessly supports fishing with heavy load lures or while deep sea jigging.
