Revolutionary design and shape combines the comfort of a low profile with the capacity of a conventional reel in the Shimano TranX Baitcasting Reel. X-Ship provides an extra smooth retrieve with superior durability and a tremendous amount of free spool by eliminating any friction between the pinion gear and spool shaft, for a reel that casts tremendous distances.

Dartainium II drag washer provides incredibly smooth drag performance with durability. Super Stopper for no-handle backplay. Ergonomic Power Handle for better leverage. Holds up to 270 yds. of 65-lb. PowerPro braid. Works big lures to target big muskies.
