Shimano Stella 1000 FJ

For anglers who wants the best and only the best. The New Stella FJ has the smoothest, most efficient drive train, with unprecedented durability, that Shimano has ever engineered.

The introduction of MicroModule II, with its unique gear teeth and surface design, delivers amazing smoothness and resilience above and beyond the already unmatched Hagane gear quality. With five times the water resistance thanks to X-Protect, the longterm effects of saltwater exposure will not change the FJ’s smoothness of operation, even after years of use. Silent Drive further enhances Shimano’s engineering in the pursuit of perfection, and almost every tolerance aspect of the reel that could be improved to reduce wobble and play has been completely overhauled. This creates a luxurious feeling and silence of operation not felt in any reel before.

HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates 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, a 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 channeling 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.
