An uncommon value, the Shimano® SLX Baitcast Reel puts tournament-level performance in your hands, at a fraction of the price some anglers pay. Shimano's legendary quality is unmistakable in the low-profile SLX, as this affordable baitcaster features a palm-friendly, all-metal Hagane® body; extremely tight and rigid, this design prevents body flex, ensuring smooth, balanced winding with exceptional cranking power. In addition, the SLX offers the precision of Shimano's proven VBS® cast control, which uses centrifugal force to vary the amount of friction applied to the spool during the cast, greatly reducing the chances of backlashing. Its 3+1 bearing system is lean and efficient, and 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.
