Shimano Metanium DC Low-Profile Baitcast Reel
With perhaps the most advanced brake system on the water, the Shimano® Metanium DC Baitcast Reel offers ultimate cast control for the performance-oriented bass angler. The perfect complement to Shimano's Super Free Spool technology, I-DC5 (digital control) Braking is adjustable to not only match your lure weight, but also your line type, allowing you to fine-tune the reel's casting performance to a degree never before possible. An interior dial lets you select for braid, mono, or fluoro line, while the external dial offers 4 brake strength settings plus a microcomputer-driven Intelligent Auto mode, which adjusts itself 1000 times per second for optimal braking. The result is long, smooth, accurate casting with all line and lure combinations. But the Shimano Metanium DC has much more to offer the advanced angler. This is a premium reel, lightweight and versatile, with many top-line features, including: unyielding Hagane® body construction, S3D Shimano Stable Spool Design, powerful MicroModule gearing for perfect mesh, exclusive X-Ship pinion gear support system, premium 9+1 bearing system with S-ARB shielded anti-rust ball bearings, and a superior drag system with consistent range and up to 11 lbs. of max drag. Clearly, the Metanium DC is a super-smooth, highly durable performance reel worthy of the angler who aspires to the top levels of the sport.

Best Reels on the MarketThe Shimano Metanium DC and the regular Metanium are the best reels on the market - bar none. They are smooth and get great distance even with a 1/4 ounce shaky head. I love my Metaniums - wouldn't have any other kind, and I've used Revos and Lew's reels.

One great baitcast reelI brought this left hand XG (8.5) reel few months ago, boy I am glad I hop aboard on this DC reel, it doesn't completely eliminate back lash, but it does cut down back lash by 90% even you cast into the wind.
So far I caught a few 3 to 4 lb large mouth without a hickup, from all the way out reeling the fish to shore the the drag didn't slip a bit, I have the drag set about 80% I pair this reel with St. Croix legend xtreme 7 ft 6in mid heavy, mod fast rod, the best combination period.
Do keep in mind this reel does not eliminate back lash, it will still happen if it's not correctly used.
If you are looking for a new reel, I am sure you will not be disappointed on this one

Perfection!What more can you ask for. Lighter than the Curado DC. Has more settings to really dial in awesome casting ability. No complaints. I mean comparably Ferrari and Mercedes. Both quality vehicles but the Ferrari has an edge. Metanium has that edge.

Great Reel all aroundI bought this reel because my beloved Core is no longer made. It just plain works like all Shimano reels the only fault I would say exists is that Shimano no longer makes a flipping switch like they used to. This reel will cast a long 40 yds easily, it seems to do a great job of not back lashing when casting into the wind.
does this reel have a cool casting wine noise when you cast it?

Does this reel take batteries, and what kind?
Asked by: Bas123
Thank you for your question! This reel does not take batteries. The micro-computer inside is charged when the reel is cast. This video should help explain it:
