Shimano Tranx 200 AXG


Shimano Tranx 200 AXG

The Shimano Tranx series is the latest greatest saltwater baitcaster from Shimano. We stock three models in the range. The 200,300 and 400 sizes, but for now let’s talk about the Tranx 200 AXG.

The Shimano Tranx 200 AXG is built to withstand the harshest saltwater environments. After over a decade of corrosion study, Shimano has developed a reel concept that will deliver long-lasting durability and performance for inshore anglers around the world.

In South Africa, we do not use the term “inshore”, but it would typically relate to estuaries and bays. We generally prefer grinders with braid…

However, the Tranx series with its ruggedness is still an ideal companion for winding in big swimbaits for bass and in the bigger models ideal for light inshore jigging, bay fishing, or even rock and surf.

So in short, heavy-duty Bass, light Saltwater with a bit of Tigerfish in-between.

See the video below to get a feel for the look of the reel:


Packed with features like:

  • CoreProtect
  • Cross Carbon Drag
  • Hagane Body
  • SVS Infinity
  • 3+1 S ARB Bearings
  • 12lb Drag
  • 8.5:1 Gear ratio

This would be my first choice reel for pitching live baits and topwater lures at Rock Salmon in a place like Kosi Bay and other estuaries all along our east coast. When walking the dog with stick baits for Garrick, Springer, or even Grunter you can be sure to rely on the world-famous Shimano drag, strong gears, and CoreProtect to ensure performance cast after cast.

Spool with 20 to 30lb braid for best results and hang on!

We run a bunch of video channels too, on YouTube – right here is a saltwater list that is going to be growing flat out over the next short while…
