The Shimano Stella 4000 FE is a high-end spinning reel. This rod's Propulsion Line Management System includes a spool lip design. This design helps you to make long casts with little friction, and also makes you less vulnerable to wind backlash. This Propulsion Line Management System also includes an oversized roller (the Power Roller III), which helps to cut down on line twisting. The E.I. Surface Treatment that covers the Stella 4000 FE increases its corrosion resistance. This rod has an X-Ship Double Bearing Supported Pinion Gearing system, which helps with gearing efficiency and power. This rod has an ultra-light handle rotation, which makes it easy to handle. The Stella 4000 FE is made with Dyna-Balance, which helps to make the feel of this rod comfortable. This rod's Aerowrap II Oscillation system provides uniform line lay and winding shape, which helps to prevent the loss of energy during casting. This model differs from the slightly lower cost Stella 4000 FE in that it has thirty-eight inches of line retrieve per crank (as opposed to the Stella 2500 FE's thirty-five inches), has a higher line capacity and power pro line capacity, has twenty-four pounds of maximum drag (as opposed to the Stella 2500 FE's twenty pounds), a 6.2:1 gear ratio (as opposed to the Stella 2500 FE's 6.0:1 ratio), has a SW T type grip shape (as opposed to the Stella 2500's Flat T type), and weighs more (9.5 ounces as opposed to 8 ounces). The Shimano Stella spinning reel model won the 2010 ICAST Best Freshwater Reel award.
