The new Shimano Stella 1000 FJ Spinning Reel takes fishing to the next level! The Smoothest most efficient drivetrain in a spinning reel is now even smoother and more efficient with improved durability. The new Micro Module II provides a new ideal gear design and gear teeth surface for amazing smoothness and nearly twice the strength of Shimano's already unmatched gear durability. X-Protect makes the new Stella up to five times more resistant to the long term damaging effects of water than the previous model, so every turn of the handle is sure to feel as good as new even after years of use. Plus, new Silent Drive, long stroke spool, tangle-proof rotor design, and a host of other new high-end features means Stella truly represents a benchmark in Shimano spinning reels.
HAGANE Body means this reel has high rigidity and zero twists. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
Hagane Gear is at the very heart of the reel and creates strength and durability. The entire cold-forging process is calculated in minute detail by special 3D design and the result is precision durability.
Micro Module II
State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analysed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection.
E.I. Anti-Corrosion Surface Treatment
After the adonisation process is finished, the second layer of surface treatment is added. This treatment is forced into the remaining surface impurities. This gives salt no hideout and also results in an extremely smooth-to-the-touch finish. A reel with E.I. treatment has more than double the corrosion resistance of a standard anodised reel.
G Free Body
G Free Body technology has been developed to shift the reel's centre of gravity closer to the rod. By moving the centre of gravity closer to your hand position, the G Free Body helps to reduce fatigue and enhance casting comfort.
By combining our water repellent coating and our specially designed, water channelling labyrinth construction, X-Protect provides high-level water resistance without sacrificing light gear and rotor rotation.
Cross Carbon Drag
The drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
