Leaders never settle while redefining innovation — a trajectory of infinite evolution. The iconic heritage of the Stella family embodies this mindset with the debut of the new Stella FK aimed at enriching angler performance through the debut of industry-leading Shimano reel technology. Built upon the Shimano legacy of cold-forged HAGANE gears for added strength with the refinement of MicroModule II technology, new InfinityXross technology extends the gear tooth horizontally to distribute load across the gear tooth more evenly for unequaled gear durability. InfinityDrive — passed down through its saltwater brethren — delivers light rotation and increased cranking power under load. With up to 10 times the durability, the revolutionary new Duracross drag system provides the smooth performance of felt but the toughness of Cross Carbon. Combining new spool and rotor innovations with proven Shimano technology increases casting and reeling performance with improved line management. Shimano's new InfinityLoop technology extends the spool oscillation to produce a more even line lay for a beautiful winding shape that results in increased casting performance. The combination of the new Anti-Twist Fin — an elastic polymer on the underside of the roller — with a redesigned drag knob and fortified propulsion lip enhances reeling performance with superior line management. Infinity Evolution: The new Stella has arrived.
