hi Kil ! Hi everybody  from France !!




It seems a lot of fishermen   here have big problems with the new stellas !  almost 10000swb and up ones are concerned.


particulary with ones associated to short jigging rods ( as Fisherman on the videos ) or while animation of sticks with popping rods ! Fishermen get Parkinson disease ... really unconfortable ! A lot back to shops or waiting for Shimano's answer.


the braid runs out the guide roller and gets back in the groove and clac clac clac ...,  some rods shiver very hard, buck  during popping or retrieving lures.


Do some of you In USA have the same problem ?


For the moment no answer from Shimano who says they think about it . Fishermen having a trip in the next weeks get mad !



Some of the videos here after :


One forum moderator posted on Youtube : 







All is shown on his account .



Hope this post won't bother you . Reading your exp√©riences would be great  !!



Tight lines  :)

HI Phil,


If you would have a look into Alan Hawk's review on the 2013 stella.


Your vedio shown will not come as a suprise after that...!


Sadly for shimano.


Have a look at this: http://www.alanhawk....views/13SW.html

Thanks a lot for answering !


I think most fishermen read Alan's review as his reviews are now such a fisherman's bible !


But nobody thought something like that could happen ! And there's a lot that were sold abroad  before they were really in shops in Europe ! And we never heard of such things ! Just read about more plastics or knob problems or something like that ! Not that maybe the angle is wrong or that the reel must be married only with some rods ...


Lots of pics and  videos online  with new Stella and  huge fishes and  well known fishermen or serious tackle shops !!   That's amazing ! We had the info that all the models for the whole world were the same ! No Jdm or Us or European model !


It seems that Shimano has promised an answer next wednesday !
