The new Shimano Stella FJ has the smoothest, most efficient drive train Shimano has ever engineered with unprecedented durability.

The Introduction of the newly engineered Micro Module II with unique gear teeth and surface design delivers amazing smoothness and durability above the more already unmatched Hagane gear quality.  With five times water resistance due to X-Protect, the long term effects of saltwater exposure will not effect the reels smoothness and operation after years of use.

Silent Drive further enhances Shimano’s engineering in the pursuit of perfection, almost every tolerance aspect of the reel that could be improved to reduce wobble and play has been completely overhauled.  Creating an ultimate feeling and silence of operation not felt in any reel before the Stella FJ. Hagane Gear, Hagane Body, X-Ship, G-Free Body, Anti-Tangle Rotor long stroke spool and a host of other key Shimano technologies round out what is evidently the new benchmark in spinning reels, the Stella FJ.

Saltwater use is not an issue, with EI Surface Treatment protecting the exterior, while the X Protect labyrinth system keeps water and dirt at bay in key areas such as the line roller and roller clutch, making the FJs durable for years to come.  And as you’d expect in a flagship reel like this, al l these advancements are housed in a Hagane Body with 12 SA-RB bearings and one roller bearing, utilising an X-Ship bearing-supported pinion gear plus a G-Free Body where the centre of gravity is closer to the rod for increased winding comfort.

With five reels in the Stella FJ line-up, from the 1000 FJ right through to the C5000XG FJ, drag power from the Rigid Support Drag ranging from 3-11kg and gear ratios from 5.1:1 to 6.4:1, discerning anglers will be itching to get their hands on these beauties.
