Shimano SLX DC 150 XG
Baitcaster’s are just so well balanced that on the right rod, your rig really feels like at extension of your arm. Accurate casts become muscle memory as you place your bait on the bulls-eye, every time. Now add to this, a digitally controlled casting brake, and you have the formula for forever-lasting success. Your catch statistics WILL improve when you change to a baitcaster. They just make you fish better.
And in the fight, well, the overhead reel with powerful cranking handle and infinite anti-reverse means that you are in charge right from the strike. Shimano drags are probably their biggest selling point and it’s no different on these tiny little reels. And their ample capacity means that you can double your baitcaster and target estuarine gamefish like garrick and kingfish too. Just watch the salt obviously. A light rinse in fresh water every now and then, with a seasonal teardown, new oil and grease and some water-displacing spray – not too much, will keep your Shimano SLX DC 150 XG in service for as long you.

Shimano Technology In Shimano SLX DC Baitcasting Reels:
Based on the Shimano SLX platform, the Shimano SLX DC Baitcasting Reels use a digital braking system to make sure anyone can cast. The SLX DC palm-hold design and frame is equipped with Shimano’s I-DC4 Digital Control Braking system which utilizes a microcomputer to monitor spool speed and apply the brakes before overwind. Giving control to the agler no matter his or her skill level. Works great in windy and tough conditions. Gives you full accuracy.
I-DC4 Braking – 4 setting external dial that can be adjusted on the water to provide braking as conditions and lures change. This 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.
Hagane Body – A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to it’s stiffness and impact resistance.
Super Free Spool – designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. The gear is supported by a ball bearing, which keeps the gear in perfect alignment with the spool shaft to eliminate friction for longer casts and smoother operation.
Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D) – utilizes a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminium spool to reduce spool vibration and increase smoothness.
