When money is no object and only the very best will do, the new Stella FD range of fixed spool reels should set your imagination running wild. Designed with a new screw-less construction around Shimano's benchmark SR-system components, with a stunning magnesium body - the new Stella FD is in a class of its own. With four models in the range, the 4000 edition has 13 shielded A-RB bearings with a roller bearing, bringing it up to a 17 ball bearing equivalent.



The main difference between the Super GTM-RB and Super GT-RB reels is their gear ratio. The GTM is fast-geared for optimum speed performance whilst the GT provides more torque and power. The gear ratio of the GT version is one rotor rotation slower and offers extremely high cranking power. This makes the reel useful for crank bait lures and other heavy types of fishing where power is preferred over speed. In addition to the familiar Super GT reels and purpose built match edition, a new 3000 shallow spool reel is now available; more than twice as deep as a standard match spool, and far shallower than a traditional full capacity spool
