Upgraded for increased power and enhanced durability, the new Shimano Stella SW 8000 HG Spinning Reel represents the pinnacle of innovation for Shimano reel technology and fish-fighting performance. And what's more the rotor and spool are smaller than most size 8000 reels - making it lighter and easier to handle while jigging.
This model is equipped with an infinity drive structure that uses a special low-friction bush to reduce the sliding resistance of the main shaft. A special surface treatment has been applied to the main shaft itself, further reducing friction. The rotation torque has been reduced by about 30% compared to the conventional model, resulting in a powerful reel that can be actively wound up even under heavy loads.
The Shimano Stella SW has the X protect structure on the line roller in addition to the stopper bearing, further improving the waterproof performance.
