Shimano TranX Baitcasting Reel - Left Hand Wind

What our customers are saying:


"Looking for a baitcaster that won't let you down, look no further as this is an absolute work horse. I've thrown lures from 50g to 250g with it and it's taken it all in its stride! It's worth every penny, you won't be disappointed!" - Drew on Sep 23, 2020

With the super powerful TranX, you can tackle anything that swims in freshwater or saltwater with the powerful! X-Ship & HEG technology combines to provide massive cranking power with a smooth effortless retrieve, perfect for throwing big baits and catching big fish. Shimano's new CoreProtect water resistant technology provides long-lasting durability in the harshest environments.

  • Fresh or Salt water
  • Max drag over 10kg
  • S3D spool for ultra light rotation with reduced vibration
  • Weight, 340g
  • Ratio, 5.8:1
  • Line capacity, 0.3mm 270m

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.
