Shimano SLX Low-Profile Casting Reel
Attention tournament anglers! Your new favorite casting reel is here! The Shimano SLX Low-Profile Casting Reel combines a compact body with a deep spool. The rigid aluminum frame provides a solid platform for the hardened brass gear and four ball bearings to create a smooth retrieval. The SLX Casting Reel features Shimano's Variable Brake System (VBS) allows for consistent, long distance casts as well as accurate short pitches. Outfitted with a long handle and power knobs, this casting reel lets you stay comfortable all day long. The SLX Reel is 20% smaller than the Shimano Caenan reel, making it easier for you to palm.

- HAGANE Body
- The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.
- VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. When turned on, the individual brake weights are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure with which the brake weights contact the raceway lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning.

I've only used this for 3 days, but it is awesome so far. The braking system while casting works so well, I can really launch light weighted baits a long ways and not worry about a backlash. I have it spooled with 12lb mono and it spools and unspools really nice.
