Shimano SLX DC Baitcast Reel
Specially equipped with Digital Control braking, the Shimano® SLX DC Baitcast Reel brings Shimano's most advanced casting system ever into the realm of affordability. The brand's legendary quality is unmistakable in the low-profile SLX DC, starting with its palm-friendly, all-metal Hagane® body; extremely tight and rigid, this design prevents body flex, ensuring smooth, balanced winding with exceptional cranking power. Altogether, it's the perfect framework for the unmatched precision of Shimano's extraordinary DC braking technology, a computerized cast control system that monitors the reel's spool speed 1,000 times per second and automatically applies the correct brake pressure to prevent backlash and maximize casting distance. On the retrieve, you'll find the 4+1 bearing system to be lean and efficient, while the sturdy drag system provides up to 11-12 lbs. of maximum drag – more than enough to turn any bass headed for cover. Extended handle for extra cranking power.

Best reel I've purchased!Went to the counter as the guy was unboxing their only one to put it on display. I had been looking for a higher quality reel to pair with a MH rod I had recently purchased and had seen this reel advertised. He explained all the details, ins and outs, so I pulled the trigger and bought the HG(7.2:1). Best purchase yet! It performs near flawlessly in the field whether windy or not. Whether a weightless senko or heavy hard bait there's no fear with the adjustments. The DC hum is beautiful and works so well. Perfect for someone learning to use a caster as well. I loved it so much I went a purchased the XG(8.2:1) a few weeks later pairing with the Shimano SLX rod! Also in love with it. I will more than likely be adding more Shimano SLX DC reels through the coming year.
