Shimano says that “absolute power” is the aim for its new Stella SW offshore spinning reel. And the tackle maker bullseyed the target with the level of technology in this beefy reel. The reel uses X-Touch Drag to enhance smoothness and control when that trophy has some fight left, and Shimano’s X-Ship technology to increase cranking power, so whatever you hook is in for a hell of a brawl. The Stella SW features a lightweight aluminum body and a cold-forged aluminum spool, with a proprietary coating the company claims makes it harder than Ti-coated stainless steel.
