Here we go, compliments of Mr Hawk:

(from: http://jignpopforum.com/topic/715-updated-here-is-the-new-stella-sw/page__pid__4682#entry4682)

The VERY good news seems to be that the spools are interchangeable with existing Stella SW models. All those existing aftermarket spools will fit!

Suggests to me the reel body sizes are not going to change relative to the current 8/10k, 18/20k SW bodies. Could shimano just be taking more notice of their after market accessorizers (such as the yumeya 12k, 20k max spool and the SOM 16k spools) and upgrading spool capacities to these new reels which are essentially the same body sizes as the current SW's but with some new mods like an 'x-shield'. If this proves to be the case I won't be bothering with any reel retail therapy when they come out.

If that's the case, neither will I.

What would be ideal for me is a reel whose body is bigger than the 8000 but smaller than the 18000, had beefed up internals as compared to the 8000 and would hold 250-300 metres of PE8. I was hoping that's what the 14000 would be. Will just have to wait and see I guess.

Regards,


Trevor

I think Andy may well be right but let's see.  It could be that the new Stella is really just an existing Stella with a few aesthetic/finishing changes and new gearing.

Trevor, a 14000 would never hold that much PE8. A 16000 just about holds 250 metres PE8 and even that is pushing it.

There is more detail about the 14K. How come it pulls more line than a 18K that has bigger spool?

I guess because it is XG Adrian... gearing 6.2 for the 14000 against 5.7 for the 18000.

If that table is correct, there will no longer be a high gear 10000.

As the 14000 is only 5 grams heavier than the 10000, I think we can assume that the14000 does not have larger body size.

All assuming of course that this table is correct.

Without checking my boxes for the 5000 and 10000 I thought they were 390 and 640 grams? That makes the new models heavier which is not what is being said.

Checking the Australian and US Shimano sites and the 5000 is 400 and 405 grams, the 10000 is 630 and 666 grams respectively (after converting the US ounces to grams). Interesting that they are different considering they are the same reels but in any case both stats show the current model is lighter than what is posted in that table.

I believe those weights are w.o. the spool but I stand corrected .

Will be great to open one up once they are available and see what differences there actually are...

Very interesting to see Shimano is bringing out a new model of the Stella. The X-Shield is the best thing i can see about the new model and Daiwa can take a leaf out of the Shimano book because some of the new Saltiga's have started to pitt (pitt equals corrosion spots) on the reels body. I hear the X-Shield is a form of corrosion resistance. And as for the spools i see it as a way to stop all the corrosion of the bearings that comes with using the after market spools such as the yumeya 12k, 20k max spool and the SOM 16k spools. As it is of my opinion that the after market spools have so many holes drilled into them for weight loss that it makes your reels body susceptible to saltwater enhancing bearing corrosion. And the price well it looks like Shimano will do the same as Daiwa did and that's jack the price up for a new product.

Note: there are certain things I can and cannot say. But what I will say is that some of those specs already published by some people are not correct.

A lot of people are jumping to some interesting conclusions - wait until the specs are officially published!

Sure looks like Saltigas Dogfights (6500 & 7000H), a big improvement it looks brilliant, it will be interesting to compare prices between new Saltigas and these new Stellas.

Cheers Ross.
