The Shimano Tranx 500HG baitcasting reel is a low profile design explicitly designed for the angler that loves using a baitcasting reel and wants to go after the larger species of fish that tend to want to run once hooked.
The problem with the traditional baitcasting reels is that they can not hold enough line on the spool or have enough drag to fight the big guys like Tuna, Grouper and large Bass.
The Shimano Tranx 500HG has a max drag capacity of 25 lbs and a massive line capacity of up to 380 meters of 50lb braid. Built for agility with a 6.6:1 gear ratio and has an incredible line retrieval rate of one meter per crank of the handle.
