The Stella SW is the ultimate in Shimano reel technology and fish-fighting performance. With upgrades for increased power and durability, the series features Infinity Drive for powerful winding and the Heatsink Drag for superior performance under extreme heat. X-Protect and X-Shield achieve a water resistance rating of IPX8, and the aluminium Hagane Body acts as a rigid and super tough outer shell. HG models are designed for casting and jigging, PG for jigging, and XG for saltwater casting. Experience the pinnacle of innovation with the Stella SW.

Product Features:

  • 10 Year Warranty
  • Infinity Drive for Light and Powerful Winding
  • Heatsink Drag Upgrade for Superior Heat Resistance Under Extreme Pressure
  • Ipx8 Waterproof Performance Via X-Protect And X-Shield
  • Cold Forged Hagane Gears for Extreme Durability
  • Highly Rigid Aluminum Hagane Body


Product Technologies:
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.


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. 

Hagane Body

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.

Silent Drive

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

Heatsink Drag

Upgraded drag with superior heat resistance through a Heat Sink Panel and Insulation Sheet which blocks heat transfer to the spool and ensures drag performance.


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.

Xtough Drag

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.

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.

E.I. Surface Treatment

E.I Surface treatment doubles the durability of the spool surface and gives less wear out by eliminating oxidation.

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. 

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.
