Shimano Stella 3000 XG FJ
The Shimano Stella 3000 XG FJ has the smoothest most efficient drivetrain in a spinning reel!
The latest model is now even smoother and more efficient with improved durability, MicroModule II provides a new gear design and gear teeth surface for amazing smoothness and nearly twice the strength of Shimano’s already unmatched gear durability.
I have abused this reel to no end while having unlimited ultra-light saltwater fun over the last few years, and this reel just keeps going!
Oh, and we have caught loads of bass and other freshwater species as well!
Having caught species like Yellowfin Tuna, Skipjack, Small Amberjack, and GT’s on this little monster I can confirm the unmatched durability of the reel.
X-Protect makes the new Stella up to five times more resistant to the long term damaging effects of water than the previous model.
The new Silent Drive, Long Stroke Spool, tangle-proof rotor design, and a host of other new high-end features make the Stella a true benchmark in Shimano spinning reels range.
However, we still view this as a Freshwater reel!
Fishing Pro Shop would like to stress that no reel is maintenance-free! So when one abuses a reel in the salt as I have done with this little Stella, you must accept that servicing is vital to get the most out of any reel…
We suggest spooling with a high-quality thin braid like Sufix 131 in 10lb for maximum line capacity, casting distance, and enjoyment.

We run a bunch of video channels too, on YouTube – right here is a saltwater list that is going to be growing flat out over the next short while…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V9x3LJ5X4rQ&list=PLzTX1fwVYeILFKeRj67roCtHBJuEtpr8K
