Set a new benchmark for spinning performance on the ocean with the latest Stella fishing reels. The Shimano Stella FJ takes the Shimano spinning reel lineup to new heights. The latest models are even smoother, more efficient and more durable than the previous generation (the Stella FI). Micro Module II technology is the heart of the all-new gear design and gear teeth surface. The design provides for amazing smoothness and nearly doubles the strength of Shimano's already unmatched gear durability.
X-Protect also makes this Stella up to five times more water-resistant than its predecessor. This ensures each turn of the handle will feel as good as it did right out of the box for years of trouble-free use. Yet another major upgrade is the all-new Silent Drive, which eliminates play at the micron level and increases tolerances to a level never seen before in a Stella reel. On top of these three revolutionary upgrades is a long stroke spool and tangle-proof rotor design that truly takes the Stella FJ to a new level and sets the benchmark for Shimano spinning reels moving forward.
TackleDirect offers five models of the Stella FJ for anglers who want to chase any saltwater species. Smaller reels such as the Shimano Stella 2500 and 1000 are good for striper, redfish, salmon and other small- to mid-size game fish. If you want to go after bluefin tuna and giant porgies, trust a Stella FJ 5000 with its high gear ratio and line capacity. All of these reels have super-strong Hagane gearing, a tangle-free bail, E.I. anti-corrosion treatment and other features the Stella is known for. Call or email us for expert advice on which reel fits your game fish of choice.
If youâ€™re reading this, then youâ€™ve already researched the information and specs on this reel. Yes. The product is as described by the manufacturer. Silky smooth drag, handle, and rotor rotation. I loaded 115yds.of 6lb. braid backing and got a solid 50yds. of 6lb. fluoro top shot (those #â€™s are exact). I thought this reel was a bit large for 2lb. ultralight and would suggest to those looking for 2lb. ultralight reels have a look at the Daiwa Exist models. Overall, Iâ€™m elated with this reel. The price is what hurts.
I compared Shimano Stella FI STL4000XGFI and Shimano Stradic FK ST4000XGFK,
Now, I will compare Shimano Stella FI STL4000XGFI, Shimano Stradic FK STC3000HGFK, and Shimano Stella FJ STLC3000XGFJ.
Yes, I purchased Stella FJ and Stella FI within 2 months, Stella FI made me think the best retrieve feeling, drag noise, and bail flip sound ever but Stella FJ has improved all category and $100 cheaper!!!!
I have Stradic FJ 2500, 5000, Stradic FK 1000, 3000, 4000, 5000, Stella FI 4000, and Stella FJ 3000, Stella FJ C3000XG is the best fit for Long Island sound fishing (some says Shimano Stradic FK C5000XG and Stella FJ C5000XG.....), But, light weight reel with max 20lbs drag, continuous 13lbs drag, this is reel is the best of bests.
