Product Description

The Shimano Tranx TRX500PG is so powerful it could pull your Jeep out of a mudhole for breakfast, winch up a billboard for lunch, and then load a tank onto an AC-130 for dinner. While that may be a SLIGHT exaggeration, the TRX500PG’s gearing is specifically designed for incredible cranking power that is superior to any other reel in its class. By far. High-Efficiency Gearing, a Shimano standby, replaces the old main gear with an upgraded super-sized main gear with many more small teeth for insane meshing that needs to be felt so you can truly get a grasp of its torque. Adding to the madness, is Shimano’s patented X-Ship technology, which places ball bearings at either end of the pinion gear keeping it in line with the main gear for a torque free retrieve keeping the reel even when cranking down on a large predatory saltwater fish. While you can use your TRX500PG for freshwater musky fishing as many anglers do, many more use it for tossing soft plastics at cruising cobia, stripers, mahi, or even schoolie tuna, or even doing some wreck fishing where a powerful (4.6:1) gear ratio is a necessity. This levelwind behemoth is made in Japan featuring cold forged and machined aluminum everything, and the entire surface is coated with E.I. anti-corrosion treatment. The Shimano Tranx TRX500PG Low Profile Saltwater Reel uses a Dartainium II drag washer to pump out a solid 25# drag, and a VBS brake system uses centrifugal force to evenly disperse pressure on the spool while casting to prevent backlash and increase accuracy.
