Shimano Bantam MGL Baitcasting Reels are all about performance and quality. The Bantam name has been around for over four decades and Shimano has resurrected it for this great 150 size baitcaster. The Bantam MGL is constructed of a one-piece aluminum frame that integrates the sideplate and levelwind guard into a single piece. This reduces flex and increases the life of the reel. The spool was designed to increase casting distance and control. The MGL Spool reduces inertia while the Stable Spool Design reduces vibration to give the reel a smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures. Pair this with the SVS Infinity break and you'll be able to make long, accurate casts, even when fishing with lighter lures. Internally, the goal was to improve the drive train to make the reel incredibly smooth and operate at a very high level. Shimano has outfitted the Bantam MGL with a Micro Module Gear, seven S A-RB ball bearings, X-Ship and Silent Tune, resulting in a reel that is a pleasure to fish. Shimano has even incorporated their Cross Carbon drag system that delivers smooth fish stopping power. Get yourself a Shimano Bantam MGL Baitcasting Reel and take your freshwater fishing to the next level. You will love how they feel and how they perform!
Shimano Bantam MGL 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.

This is no doubt the smoothest and easiest to cast reel I have ever owned. And I have owned many many reels. Even super user friendly with braid loaded.
