The new Stella FK is pure perfection in a spinning reel. Engineered from the ground up to become the smoothest fishing reel ever made, loaded with Shimano's latest tech this reel is for those who demand the best. 

The 2022 Stella FK reel boasts major technology upgrades for exceptional performance. Infinity Cross enhances gear durability with improved surface area contact and meshing, while Infinity Loop reduces friction for precise casting. Infinity Drive increases power transmission and torque, and an Anti-Twist Fin prevents line wrapping. The Dura Cross drag washer offers smoother performance and durability. The Hagane Gear, Micromodule II, Silent Drive, and X-Ship ensure smooth transmission and light winding. X Protect water resistance technology and the Long Stroke Spool design provide maximum casting performance.

- Infinity Xcross — Superior gear strength

- Infinity Loop — Enhanced casting performance

- Infinity Drive — Improved cranking power

- Anti Twin Fin — Reduced wind knots

- Dura Cross — I0X more durable drag


Product Technologies:
Infinity Xross

Advancements in manufacturing technology and gear tooth design improve the surface contact and meshing between the drive gear and pinion gear. This revolutionary design efficiently distributes the load placed on the gear tooth surface across a wider area to prevent damage from stress points while significantly improving overall gear durability.

Infinity Loop

Advancements in the internal structure and design extend the spool's oscillation to enable the spool to move up and down at an extremely low speed. This technology creates a precise winding pattern with less overlap that significantly reduces friction as the line leaves the spool during a cast. The result is smooth and exceptional casting performance, especially light lures.

Infinity Drive

The Infinity Drive structure is a more advanced version of the conventional X-SHIP structure that created exceptionally light winding. The main shaft, which had previously been supported by the pinion gear, is now supported by a new and unique low-friction bushing that significantly decreases frictional resistance. In addition, the main shaft has undergone a proprietary surface treatment and special processing to drastically reduce rotational torque, constructing a reel that can actively wind even under heavy loads.

Anti Twist Fin

The flexible polymer fin is installed near the line roller. This maintains line tension to reduce sagging and prevents the line from falling off the bottom of the spool or wrapping around the spool in an uneven manner.

Propulsion Line Management System

The most obvious component of the Propulsion Line Management System is the new Propulsion Spool Lip design. Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, Shimano’s new spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while also preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming.

Dura Cross

Constructed to enhance overall durability, this revolutionary drag washer incorporates cutting-edge materials woven in a unique pattern compared to conventional drag washers. Without sacrificing a smooth drag feel, this new material is greater than 10x more durable for improved drag performance.

Hagane Gear

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.

ARC Spool

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.

G Free Body

G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's center of gravity closer to the rod. This has been achieved by moving the worm shaft oscillation mechanism 19mm from the bottom of the reel to the top. By moving the center of gravity closer to the angler’s hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.

One Piece Bail

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.

Rigid Support Drag

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.


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. This creates more stability.

Micromodule Il

Improved Micro Module gearing, making the reeling extremely smooth.

Silent Drive

Removed 'clicking' sound and 'handle play' and overall improved smooth reeling.
