The new Shimano Stella FJ has the smoothest, most efficient drive train Shimano has ever engineered with unprecedented durability. The Introduction of the newly engineered Micro Module II with unique gear teeth and surface design delivers amazing smoothness and durability above the more already unmatched Hagane gear quality. With five times water resistance due to X-Protect, the long term effects of saltwater exposure will not effect the reels smoothness and operation after years of use. Silent Drive further enhances Shimano's engineering in the pursuit of perfection, almost every tolerance aspect of the reel that could be improved to reduce wobble and play has been completely overhauled. Creating an ultimate feeling and silence of operation not felt in any reel before the Stella FJ. Hagane Gear, Hagane Body, X-Ship, G-Free Body, Anti-Tangle Rotor long stroke spool and a host of other key Shimano technologies round out what is evidently the new benchmark in spinning reels, the Stella FJ.
