The SLX DC offers four adjustable settings that enables anglers to fish a wide variety of lures of different shapes and sizes, in all weather conditions. The newest SLX will also feature the Hagane Body which helps to ensure that the reel is extremely rigid and durable, Meaning that all movement results in smooth, yet strong cranking power. With a 48mm Throw Handle across three right and one HG left hand model options, featuring gear ratios of 6.3:1 and 7.2:1 (HG), this means that the slow and methodical lure worker and those who like a bit of speed will be even more impressed with the new DC series.
Shimano’s new Digital Control braking system utilizes a microcomputer to monitor spool speed 1,000 times every second and apply the perfect amount of brake to prevent backlash and maximize distance.
The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminium or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rock solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.
