Shimano SLX Baitcasting Reels are like many Shimano baitcast reels, compact, rigid and versatile. These reels feature a comfortable long handle. These baitcasting reels are ideal for tournament anglers. The SLX150 is 20% more compact than Shimano's Caenan reels. Features include Shimano's Hagene body which eliminates body flexing and transforms your actions into cranking power. This real also features the VBS braking system which is designed to reduce backlash at the onset of your cast. It is no wonder the SLX Baitcasting reel remains among our best sellers. When selecting this reel, please make sure you look at whether you are selecting a left handed model or right handed model before you complete purchase.
