Cool 2018 stella sneaky pic

It's a pretty crappy, low res pic that I pulled from the gram, but here it is nonetheless. Glad to see that they've finally ditched the ridiculous bent body crap.

Bent body exercise was the biggest two handed technology pull I've ever seen and heard about.

Looks clean and strong.

What happened to the gold colouration? All Stellas are gold right, since it's the gold standard and all...

I'm digging the more holes cut in the spool look. Looks to be some minor changes to the rotor. I wonder if it will still be metal and whether it will adopt the new shape of the recent Shimanos.

Stella's didnt start off with gold accents. The Stella Millennium Edition SS started off that tradition it seems.

But as long as the guts and the body work well or better than the FI and more like the FE who gives a hoot?

I'd prefer it to be gold. I just don't understand why they don't make this reel gold when it seems to be a colour we associate with theStella. I'm more than likely getting it and that's just going by looking at a few grainy pictures in this thread.

I'm sure mechanically, (barring a initial few design over sights) and performance-wise it will still sit atop its roost it continues to hold.

Back to a hard titanium nitrite spool lips is a good direction to go.

Hedgehog Studio's will undoubtedly have touch up parts where you can add gold to it. Or like old Stella's where you ran Yumeya parts to made it darker which a lot of people preferred.

I can live without the gold accents. I'm really digging the futuristic, chrome, alien tech vibe going on with it. I reckon people will change their minds once seeing it in the flesh.

Catalogue is in Freshwater Fishing mag and I suppose next months Fishing World.
Still has gold spool lip, the silver spool is for larger SW models, maybe silver accents on the body.

Understanding full well that it may not be to everyone's liking, I must say that I personally feel that this is the best looking stella to date. It looks like a true sister reel to the Antares, which I think looks magnificent, and certainly stands out above any other reel on the current market.
