The Shimano Stella SWB STL20000SWBPG Spinning Reel is a true alpha dog – a spinning reel that out-performs many standard conventional offshore reels while remaining light and amazingly agile. A reel with 15 S-ARB ball bearings, the STL20000SWBPG also comes with a ludicrous 55# of silky smooth waterproof drag putting this reel in range of leviathan pelagic species such as yellowfin to the 300# class, bluefin to the 450# range, black and blue marlin, striped marlin, world record class wahoo, and even goliath grouper (if you don’t care about the health of your back)! The PG notation means you’ll have enormous cranking power, as this reel has a 4.4:1 gear ratio – this means you’ll have much more torque per crank than every other Stella (excluding the 30000). The CF Cold Forged aluminum spool of the STL20000SWBPG holds a staggering 485 yards of professionally spooled 80# braid, and even more if you choose a micro line like Samurai or MaxCuatro. Many anglers will choose to run about 400 yards of hollow-core style line with an 80# mono topshot for an additional stretch factor. The Shimano Stella STL20000SWBPG Spinning Reel literally wrote the book on big game spinfishing, and as soon as you pick one up, your pupils will dilate as you get vivid images of glorious battles with trophy class fish flashing through your mind!
