The Shimano Stella SW 5000 SW is high-end spinning reel made for offshore use. The flagship Stella line's increased durability, as well as its focus on ergonomics, are the main factors that set it apart from other Shimano spinning reel lines. To the end of durability, the spool lip of this reel is has a coating on it that is harder than titanium coated stainless steel. The entire spool is also coated in ceramic, which increases corrosion resistance. The Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement system, which features a low wear rate pinion gear, is designed to keep the reel working like new for as long as possible. As far as ergnomics go, the lightweight handle grips of the Shimano Stella SW 5000 SW are designed for comfort, as well as for preventing premature bail trip.
