Reel SLX A

The SLX is one of Shimano’s most popular baitcasting reels and combines stunning value for money with solid performance with a remarkably low price point. Ticking all the right boxes, when it comes to features and performance this is Shimano value, quality and credibility and a price that almost defies logic.
The SLX is the perfect choice if you are starting to fish with baitcasting reels. Perhaps you have used spinning reels in the past, but now want to try something more direct, compact and lighter. Or perhaps you just want great value for money. Whatever your motivation, you can’t go wrong with the versatile SLX. It takes many of the tried and trusted features found on Shimano’s more expensive reels and packages them in a distinctive compact HAGANE Body that is easy to handle and use, even for inexperienced anglers.
When it comes to the cheaper end of the market there is often a trade off between quality and price. But SLX has rewritten the rule book. For a start it uses a high-end HAGANE Body made of lightweight aluminium, which is important because a strong framed reel works more effectively when under pressure. Casting is controlled by Shimano’s SVS Infinity spool braking technology, which can be almost infinitely adjusted by an external dial for the exact amount of pressure required to suit your style, preference and lure size. And to ensure minimal vibration when casting the superb Magnumlite III, S3D spool benefits from Silent Tune technology taken directly from Shimano’s most advanced models. Finally, when you hook into your first fish you’ll certainly appreciate the slightly longer handle, which provides the power to control the toughest fish.

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.


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.


SILENTTUNE_RL_BT
SILENT TUNE

By applying slight pressure to the bearing holding the spool, SilentTune reduces the vibration of the bearing during high-speed rotation. This improves the quietness while casting and the rise of the spool rotation becomes even smoother.


SVSInfinity_RL_BT
SVS∞

SVS Infinity, provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments when anglers need to adjust to the conditions or when they switch baits.


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.
