The Shimano Stella SW 5000 XG is every body’s dream spinning reel.

Ideally suited to taking on formidable prey in formidable conditions – these reels will get you out of trouble when it really counts. They are for anglers who know the difference between an ounce of drag, or a few degrees of angle. That are after a world-record fish. Or just plain obsession.

Those crazy bad snapper. Those wily and powerful Garrick. Those twisty and bad-mannered yellowtail. The lumberjack. The kingfish. When it’s trophy fish from this ilk you are after, best you come prepared. Geared up properly. With a Shimano Stella SW 5000 HG.

And then…

When you finally convince your wife or kids to join you for some quality time down by the sea – hand them the baby Stella. With absolute ease they will yield it – huge casts and smooth fishing. That is what the Stella is – a sports car that you can hand to your wife or family for everyday use.

Even if they get the Stella splashed or dunked, these things are engineered proper tough. X-everything including all-new and more effective corrosion protection means you have a spinning reel for life.

And so, you could deduce, that the baby SW Stella probably is the single most versatile spinning reel money can buy. It won’t look out of place anywhere. It can take on literally anything. And it will be with you for life if you look after it!
