What our customers are saying:

"LOVE THESE SO MUCH I BOUGHT ANOTHER"

"I bought one, used it and it instantly changed the way I fish. Having used fixed spool set ups predominately for many years I was reluctant to change over - I am so glad I did. The little micro chip takes most of the risk of an overrun out the equation and you are left to concentrate on your fishing. Great kit." - Digs on Jan 07, 2022

The new SLX DC is designed for effortless casting – in any condition. The Digitally Controlled braking system means: this reel has ‘brains’. The DC system calculates 1000 times per second what the right braking force is, in order to prevent backlash and at the same time optimizing the distance and accuracy of the cast. It makes fishing with a baitcasting reel very easy and effortless. No need to change the settings of the reel when the weather or lure changes: the DC system will do this for you. This results for more efficient fishing time and focus for the angler. What's almost as impressive as the technology in this reel is the affordable price tag!

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.
