The new STELLA SW series focuses on absolute power. To achieve it, 'toughness', 'cranking power', 'rigidity', 'water resistance' and 'drag' performances were pursued.
The core technologies are X-SHIP, which enhances power transmission efficiency through the gear, plus POWER ALUMINUM BODY, X-RIGID ROTOR, X-RIGID BAIL and X-RIGID HANDLE to improve rigidity and eliminate loss of power caused by flexing. Synergy generated by all these technologies combine to prevent loss of power input in the handle and creates enormous cranking power. In order to support this tremendous power, extreme toughness from X-RIGID GEAR is introduced at the heart of the reel's body.
X-TOUGH DRAG, with its dramatically enhanced heat resistance and toughness anticipates the blazing speed of bluefin tuna and giant trevally. Drag performance has been made even smoother, further assuring its reliability. In addition to these epoch-making mechanisms, focus was placed on water resistance, in order to maintain their initial performance and toughness. The dependable X-SHIELD system has been applied throughout, and X-PROTECT provided at the roller clutch assembly - a crucial area for water resistance.
The new STELLA SW wins fierce battles through high-level integration of 'power' and 'smoothness'.
