Shimano SLX DC is designed for effortless casting – in any condition. In size 150/151 this reel is ideal choice for coastal seatrout fishing with medium size lures and long casting distances.
The DC braking system means: this reel has "brains". The DC system calculates 1000 times per second what the right braking force is, in order to prevent backlash and at the same time optimizing the distance and accuracy of the cast. It makes fishing with a baitcasting reel very easy and effortless. No need to change the settings of the reel when the weather or lure changes: the DC system will do this for you. This results for more efficient fishing time and focus for the angler.
- Hagane Body: Produced from highrigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rocksolid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel. This reel has aluminium body.
- I-DC4: Intelligent Digital Control braking system with an easy to use, 4 setting, externally adjustable brake dial. This will allow anglers to fish a wide variety of lures, in any conditions, with minimal adjustment to the reel.
- S3D Spool: Shimano's S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminium constructed spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.
- Super Free System: The Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased freespool.
