Reel SLX XT DC

The SLX DC XT is the leading model in the hugely popular SLX series. FeaturingShimano’s most advanced i-DC5 Intelligent Digital Control braking system and a low inertia MGL III Spool,it maximises casting performance across all sizes of lures, including ultra-light finesse sizes.
If you want the directness that a baitcasting reel delivers, combined with the casting ease and versatility of a spinning reel, the SLX DC XT should be at the top of your list. Perfectly capable of casting a wide variety of lures, this technical masterpiece has hidden versatility and really comes into its own with lighter weight lures; enabling effortless and accurate casting to rival specialist BFS (Bait Finesse System) reels.
At the heart of the remarkable casting versatility is a combination of the low inertia MGL III Spool and i-DC5 Digital Casting Control. The spool is ultra light, and when loaded with braid or lighter mono, rotates with a silky smoothness and ease to maximise distance. But the real secret is the exclusive i-DC5 system. This enables you to set the casting brake for the type of line you are using and also the size of lure, from large to ultra-light finesse (plus and additional friction free) offering fantastic, trouble free, automatic casting control at the turn of a dial.
Inside the aluminium HAGANE Body (with ultra light CI4+ side plates), is a combination of Micro Module Gear and X-SHIP. This produces the unmistakable smoothness associated with Shimano Baitcasting reels and enough power to tackle the largest of freshwater predators. The simple to adjust star drag has Cross Carbon Drag Washers, which ensures that when it’s time to apply additional pressure you’ll never feel out of control.From ultra-light finesse lures to medium sized swim and crankbaits, the SLX DC XT a true all-rounder for the serious predator angler.

HAGANE

HAGANE is a Shimano reel design concept created to withstand continual use and extreme abuse. HAGANE is an innovation with built-in toughness and durability that works alongside Shimano's precision engineering. HAGANE is for all anglers.


MICROMODULE_RL_BT
MICROMODULE

The MicroModule Gear technology creates a smooth retrieve by utilizing smaller teeth to increase the number of contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear.


XSHIP_RL_BT
X SHIP

X SHIP provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This increased support allows the gears to stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. X-Ship technology also eliminates the friction between the spool shaft and gear to further benefit anglers with enhanced casting performance and casting distance of lighter lures.


HAGANEBODY_RL_BT
HAGANE BODY

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminate body flexing on the reel while fighting a fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power.


MGLSPOOL3_RL_BT
MGL SPOOLⅢ

MGL Spool III is the low inertia spool that desined with thin spool wall keeping the durability, This contribute to improve the casting performance, quick response, long distance, cast feeling and castabillity.


I-DC5_RL_BT
I-DC5

DC brake system perceives the changing spool speed and controls brake power with microcomputer, and provides the cast-performance of long distance and anti-backrash. I-DC5 brake is the combination of 3 modes: FL (Fluoro), P (PE), N (Nylon), with 5 dial adjustments to enable precise and eazy settings.


CROSSCARBONDRAG_RL_BT
CROSS CARBON DRAG

The CROSS CARBON DRAG provides the smooth drag release and the durability.


S3D_RL_BT
S3D

S3D SPOOL leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. This creates an smooth feeling when casting.


SA-RB_RL_BT
S A-RB

S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the rotation of the bearing.


SUPERFREESPOOL_RL_BT
SUPER FREE SPOOL

SUPER FREE SPOOL reduces friction on the spool shaft during the cast and enhances casting performance.
