Shimano Metanium DC 101HG LH Baitcasting Reel - Left Hand Wind

The Metanium DC is the flagship model of the Shimano Europe baitcasting reels range. Besides the very impressive technology like 9+1 high quality bearings, X-Ship, HaganeBody, MicroModule, S3D spool, etc, is the biggest advantage of this reel in the braking unit. The braking is done with the digital I-DC5 system. In this braking system a computer chip is built which calculates 1000x per second the exact right braking power of the spool, during the cast. The angler only has to choose a pre-set (type of lure, type of line) and the reel will do all the braking for the angler. This results in: easy fishing, very far casting, less knots/birds nests and less problems in casting with crosswind or other though casting conditions! It’s an all-round baitcasting reel, capable of casting lures from 5 grams up to 30 grams easily. It’s perfect for pike, perch, zander and bass fishing.

  • Body Material: Hagane, Magnesium
  • Bearings: 9+1
  • Spool Material: Diecasted Aluminium
  • Handle: Double with paddles

So what do all these letters and numbers mean? I hear you say...

Let's try explain things here:

  • BFS = Bait (Baitcaster) Finesse System
  • DC = Digitally Controlled (fool proof!) casting system
  • C = Compact body, slightly smaller than the standard
  • HG = High Gear, faster retrieve than the standard
  • XG = Extra Gear... even faster than the HF version, these letters don't determine size
  • S = Shallow spool, ideal for braid
  • DH = Double Handle
  • Ci4 = A lightweight material!
  • MGL -Magnumlite, a reel with components, often spool made from a lighter metal than others, 30% lighter than Ci4!
  • F or R = If the model name has F or R at the beginning, this is Front or Rear drag. The letter following the F determines the release age, so FK is newer than FJ. A little like the old car number plate system. 
  • 1, 2, 3000 etc = Determines the size which goes up with the number although the 2500 and 3000 are the same size, just the 3000 has a larger spool and sometimes different shaped handle... YES I know it is a bit confusing, but hopefully this helps a little in choosing the perfect reel for you.
