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.
