Mohamed Mostafa
from Cairo Egypt asked:
October 4, 2015
I've got the shimano Stella 18000sw ( the old model ) Is it ok for jigging ?
That is a little big, it would depend what you are jigging for. It is also a little heavy, so it comes down to preference and whether or not you would want to stand there and jig with the weight of that reel all day. But, as far as performance goes.... Than it is a great reel for fighting fish you would be jigging for.

Is it fully sealed like the van staal?
Hello Udon. The drag system on the Stella is fully sealed. However the rest of the reel is not sealed like a VS is. Please feel free to contact s if you have any more questions!

ben
from clearwater, fl asked:
May 9, 2015
Are the spools interchangeable on the 5000 and 6000? Would the spool from a 6000 fit on the 5000 xg?
Ben, The 6000 spool will fit on the 5000, but we don not have any information on how the reel will perform or any problems that can occur when swapping spools.

Scott
from Lake Orion, Michigan asked:
April 27, 2015
I would like to know which size STL-SWBHG reel is best fishing for permit, bonefish, redfish, and/or steelhead. I will travel with this reel between Michigan and the Keys.
Scott, the 5000swbhg would be to heavy for your application but the (SHM-2811) Stella 4000 FI filled with 10 lbs bread would be excellent.

Mark
from New York, NY asked:
January 17, 2015
I recently got a 10000 PG, it seems a little rough, when placed horizontally, the weight of the handle does not even move the roller. Is that normal?
Hello Mark. Yes this is normal. We just took one here in house and gave it the same test with the same results. Please feel free to contact us if you have any more questions!

GRaeme Blem
from South Africa asked:
September 9, 2013
What do all the letters stand for in the new range of Stella reels, i.e. "SWB" and "XG", "HG" and "PG"? I presume HG is high gear!? The other elude me though and I cant seem to find anything online. Thanks, Graeme
The letters describe the gear ratio XG = 6.2:1 HG = 5.7:1 PG = 4.4:1 The SW is the Saltwater model
