Absolute beauty...Still drooling... :-D
Slow Oscillation System - Lays the line perfectly onto the spool for the best line lay and castability.
The handle screws directly into to the drive gear, resulting in zero play between the handle and gear. The handle uses a hollow handle shank, that reduces weight while maintaining excellent durability.
The clicker only clicks on 1 direction :-)
The drag washers are protected by a waterproof gasket and provide a wide range of settings, low start up inertia, and excellent durability.
Shimano Rigid Support Drag, which eliminates spool wobble, even at light drag settings.
ARC Spool - A regular fixture in most future Shimano spinning models.
Loaded with 200m of 15lb Xzoga braid
Some additional features of the Stella '07, extracts from Tackle Tour & Tackle Direct
Featuring the new Propulsion and Paladin systems as well as the Aero Wrap II system, the Stella '07 features a magnesium frame and sideplate along with an aluminum rotor to achieve its light weight, while maintaining its strength. The Stella '07 also features a proprietary gear coating on top of the normal Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement that increases its durability even more.
Aerowrap II - a worm gear oscillation system that utilizes 2 different speeds and provides a slight criss-cross pattern to reduce the chance of line dig. It provides uniform line lay and winding shape and helps prevent loss of energy during casts.
Paladin Gearing - The Paladin gear durability enhancement utilizes a CF Aluminum Drive Gear and Special Hardened Brass Pinion Gear which Shimano found to be the best combination of process, metals and tooth design. The drive gear is cold forged out of the highest grade of aluminum available and gives exceptional density with minimal amount of metal to reduce the weight. The special hardened brass alloy used on the pinion gear is the perfect match for both smoothness and durability.Reels equipped with the Paladin Gear Durability Enhancement will retain their out-of-the-box smoothness much longer than before, and testing has shown that this combination of metals is more durable than an all stainless steel drivetrain while maintaining the smoothness that Shimano has become famous for.
