The Shimano Stella SW 8000 SW-PG is a high-end spinning reel, made for offshore use. Durability is a focus of this reel, and several components are aluminum, including the frame and sideplate. The cold forged aluminum spool's lip has a coating that makes it harder than titanium-coated stainless steel. This lip is part of the reel's Propulsion Line Management system, which is geared toward increasing casting distances. The Aero Wrap II oscillation system, by creating a uniform line lay, helps you to get longer casts with less effort. As far as the retrieve goes, the Shimano Stella SW 8000 SW-PG is equipped with Dyna-Balance, which consists of a counter balanced rotor that helps to eliminate wobble.
