A Shimano 2022 Bantam Baitcasting Reel will quickly become your go-to reel for power fishing in freshwater. The Bantam incorporates Shimano's InfinityDrive technology which is in their Stella and other saltwater reels. This gives a 150 size baitcasting reel a tremendous amount of cranking power. This increases your performance when you are using heavier lures or fishing in heavy vegitation. It can ahndle the pressure of flipping big jigs or ripping large spinnerbaits across the surface of the water. The 2022 Bantam is constructed of a one-piece aluminum frame that integrates the sideplate and levelwind guard into a single piece. This drastically reduces flex and increases the reel's lifespan. The spool design is terrific with Shimano's MGL Spool III and S3D technoloogy. The MGL III Spool reduces inertia while the Stable Spool Design reduces vibration. This leads to super smooth casts and retrievals. You can adjust the SVS Infinity break on the side of the reel. It's going to deliver those long accurate casts you are loooking for. Internally the Bantam uses Shimano's Micromodule gearing and nine ball bearings. Add in a little Shimano engineering magic and you've got a reel that is incredibly smooth and will remain that way for a very long time. The CrossCarbon drag is powerful and smooth while the doubkle Septon paddle handles deliver amazing comfort all day long. If you're looking to throw bigger baits with a 150 size baitcasting reel, and you want amazing performance, try a Shimano 2022 Bantam Baitcasting Reel. It's an amazing freshwater bass reel!

Shimano 2022 Bantam Low Profile Baitcasting Reels are available in the 150 size in both left and right handed models in 6.2:1 and 7.1:1 and 8.1:1 gear ratios. They are gunmetal.
