We see the Stella range as the perfect reel when popping for big, fast fish like Yellowfin Tuna or big Dog Tooth Tuna, we all know how these species can head for horizon with total disregard for all the drag that is applied.
The Stellas SW series has always sported strong and smooth drags and the Shimano Stella SW-C does not disappoint with a max stated drag of up to 28kg, I don’t even know what one will do with all that drag!!! I struggle to hold on to 15kgs! But this will truly be fantastic when targeting massive GTs in places like Oman, Seychelles, and Mozambique.
I would suggest spooling your Stella with the highest quality braid you can find!
If premium spinning reels are your thing then pop in and come and have a look at the new range!
