The Shimano Stella SWB STL14000SWBXG Spinning Reel is kind of the tortured middle child of the Stella line – with a large and powerful waterproof drag system capable of putting the screws to large inshore and offshore species to the tune of 55#, the STL140000SWBXG can absolutely dominate anything in its path. You’re looking at a reel that’ll tame large tarpon, amberjack, wahoo, dorado, sails, tuna up to the 150# class, and white marlin. The XG notation at the end of the model number signifies the extra high gear ratio, which comes in at a blistering 6.2:1 ratio – perfect for ripping topwater plugs across the surface inducing vicious strikes that you’ll remember for years! The CF Cold Forged aluminum spool that graces the tough Hagane body of the STL14000SWBXG is capable of holding 275 yards of standard 80# braid (professionally spooled) but you’ll get much more mileage out of the reel if you choose a micro braid like Samurai or MaxCuatro. The Shimano Stella STL14000SWBXG is a top-of-the-line spinning reel that can out-perform almost any other reel in its class on the market today, and as soon as you fish it, you’ll quickly realize why professional and tournament anglers have been choosing the Stella for so many years.
