The Shimano Stella FJ is the latest installment to their flagship line of reels. Shimano goes above and beyond to ensure that their flagship products are the best in the industry and the Stella FJ proves that once again. The Stella FJ features all of Shimano’s latest technology such as Micro Module Gearing, X-Ship, a Rigid Drag Support, one piece bail, and X-Protect, just to name a few. Micro Module Gearing and X-Protect are the most notable as these are some of the best advancements in fishing reels. X-Protect is a coating that keeps water and debris out of the internal components and the Micro Module Gearing is a precision cut gear system that produces the smoothest reel on the market.
