In what’s widely considered as the best panfish spinning reel of all time, the Shimano Stella FI STLC2000SFI Spinning Reel shines like none other has before. Somehow, the master engineers at Shimano have packed an obscene 14 S-ARB ball bearings inside this micro-bodied reel, making for the smoothest reel of its size on the market. Ever. Professional crappie fisherman love the STLC2000SFI because of the zero hesitation factor needed when delicately setting the hooks in the fragile mouth of a crappie. You’ll also be able to target bluegills, perch, rock bass, sunnies, as well as some smaller large and smallmouth bass. A standard 5.1:1 gear ratio means you’ll be fine working plugs, jigging, or fishing bait with the STLC2000SFI. The Shimano Stella FI STLC2000SFI Spinning Reel comes equipped with a CF Cold Forged aluminum spool that’ll pack on 140 yards of 10# braid, but the pros love this reel for packing on Nanofil, the unique microfilament line that reels like this are meant for.

Once you use a Shimano Stella, you won't want to use any other spinning reel on the market! This is my 3rd Shimano Stella and I still can't believe Shimano finds a way to improve on a outstanding spinning reel time after time. I use the Stella for inshore Saltwater Fishing and haven't experienced any corrosion issues, gears binding, premature bail flip, wind knots, bearing failures or drag failures. Mist them with fresh water, dry them off and they're good to go. All my Stella Reels are still out of the box smooth after years of use. My favorite features of the Stella is the effortless turning of the handle even with a large fish hooked, Quiet function and the SUPER SMOOTH and ACCURATE DRAG under any pressure. I've never lost a fish due to any malfunction of any Stella Reel that I own. Yes, they're expensive, but you won't have the buyers remorse that you may get from another manufactures "Premium" fishing reels. 100% Worth it.
