Tranx 300 & 400 Key Features
By combining the ultra durable HAGANE body with X-Ship and HEG, the Tranx 300 the strongest reel with the least amount of flex which means all of the torque is transfered to fighting the fish - none of your actions are lost in flex.
HAGANE Body - Our cold forged aluminum body comes to the Tranx to provide efficiency through strength. The highly rigid metal body is extremely stiff and impact resistant, virtually eliminating any body flexing. That means that everything inside the reel is protected, staying in line while your actions transform directly to cranking power.
CoreProtect - Our water resistant coating takes a step up with the new Tranx, thanks to a worm shaft seal, frame center seal, star drag seal, and a roller clutch seal to keep water out. We've also added silicon grease to the A side and matching frame for additional protection.
HEG Gearing - High Efficiency Gearing is another way Shimano improves torque by eliminating internal flexing. The drive gear and pinion gear are bigger, increasing leverage and power. Combine that power with the one-piece frame, incorporating the setplate and a one-piece sideplate, flex in the drive train (that causes the gears to bind under pressure) is eliminated.
X-Ship - Keeping the HEG gearing safe is our X-Ship support. X-Ship supports the gears on both sides, maintaining precise alignment even under the heaviest loads.
Clutch Retention Mechanism - The design of the Tranx includes an improved clutch retention mechanism to reduce backlashes caused by the handle moving during the cast.
