Product Description

The Shimano Stella SWB STL18000SWBHG Spinning Reel is the first giant slayer entry into the Stella line, a reel that’s capable of taming legendary beasts of the deep including bluefin and yellowfin tuna to the 250# class, marlin, sails, and monster wahoo! This reel pumps out a massive 55# of waterproof drag, which is about what standard 80 wide reels put out. The HG badge denotes a standard 5.7:1 gear ratio which gives you a wide array of uses for the STL18000SWBHG including jigging, live bait pitching, topwater plugging, and standard swimbait usage. The CF Cold Forged aluminum spool that the STL18000SWBHG utilizes holds a monstrous 380 yards of professionally spooled standard braid. Many anglers will choose either a hollow-core style line or even a micro braid like Samurai or MaxCuatro to get the most out of their reel. The Shimano Stella STL18000SWBHG Spinning Reel comes packed with more standard features than most other reels on the market, and you’ll soon see why this professional grade machine is a true monster in the offshore game.
