Step up to the next level of attainable high-performance bait casting with the SLX XT. This Shimano reel boasts a compact, strong Hagane Body, durable brass gears, and Shimano’s reliable SVS Infinity Brake System.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power. It’s efficiency through strength.
Super Free Spool was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard bait casting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and actually can drag on the spool shaft creating friction that can limit the length of a cast. With Super Free Spool the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing and spool shaft are kept in perfect alignment. The result is zero friction upon the spool shaft.
Shimano’s newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against he raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spools speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.
