Shimano Stella SW C 8000HG Spin Reel

The Stella SW represents the pinnacle of innovation for Shimano reel technology and fish-fighting performance. Featuring a Hagane body, Stella SW boasts a highly rigid metal construction. This means improved impact resistance and less body flex. At the heart of the reel, state of the art Hagane gears are cold forged for lasting durability and smoothness. Infinity Drive Technology offers an seamless winding experience, optimizing winding torque by 26%. Silent Drive further improves smoothness by eliminating worm shaft and drive gear play. An all new Shimano Heatsink drag improves performance by transferring heat away from the spool, reducing spool surface temperature by up to 100 degrees. X Protect and X Shield ensure your investment is guarded from the harsh elements of a saltwater environment so you can fish with confidence. 2019 Stella SW is lighter, more powerful and more reliable than ever before. The HG models are designed for both casting and jigging, whereas PG is geared for jigging applications and XG for saltwater casting.

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.

AR-C Spool
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations, it has been determined that the AR-C spool lip design produces longer casting distances than a standard spool lip, while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This results in longer casts with less friction. A spool designed with a V-shape spool lip ensures the line comes off the reel in smaller loops, for longer, more accurate casting.

By placing sealing gaskets in 12 critical locations throughout the rigid aluminium body, we are able to create a water resistant structure that can hold up against the toughest conditions and fish that Mother Nature has to offer.

Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate in protection

One-Piece Bail
One Piece Bail allows the line to travel unimpeded to the line roller. Its seamless design reduces friction and the chance of tangles or cuts to the bail arm.

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.
