Shimano SLX baitcaster reel
NEW for 2018, the SLX series is the latest addition to the ever-growing Shimano baitcaster range.
This is a compact and highly versatile reel, suited to catching anything from bass through to barra. It features an aluminium Hagane Body, the same body size as the Curado 70, but offering the line capacity of a conventional 150 sized reel.
Inside the SLX’s Hagane Body, durable brass gearing delivers reliable cranking power and three SUS bearings and one roller bearing means everything turns smoothly. Casting is made effortless with the adjustable 6 pin VBS brake system, making it ideal for a range of different fishing styles and casting preferences.
A 45mm Throw Handle works in conjunction with two model options featuring gear ratios of 6.3:1 and 7.2:1.
On top of this, max’ drag settings of between 5 and 5.5kg provides plenty of stopping power should it be needed.
