    Sterdy reel feels nice.

The Shimano Tranx Low Profile Saltwater Baitcasting Reel has the power to pull and the speed to burn. Shimano has taken all of the power, drag and smoothness from their top of the line saltwater conventional reels and put it into a low profile reel with excellent castability. This is a perfect reel for topwater casting for tuna, amberjack and other large saltwater species. The Tranx features all aluminum construction, Shimano's X-Ship technology which makes for increased power with an effortless turn of the handle, Dartanium II drag system, and eight ball bearings. Whichever model you choose, the Shimano Tranx Low Profile Reels are revolutionizing saltwater fishing!

Shimano Tranx Reels are available in two gear ratios. These reels are meant to be fished with braided line.
