The SLX DC is undoubtedly an outstanding model in the highly popular series of SLX baitcaster reels. It stands out with its affordable pricing and easy handling, making it the ideal choice for anglers of all experience levels. Featuring the Shimano I-DC4 Digital Control System, it offers automatic improvements to casting performance, regardless of the line used, weather conditions, or casting techniques.
This compact reel is known for its smooth cranking and unbeatable value. Thanks to the Shimano DC System, even beginners to baitcast will find casting a breeze. The SLX DC inherits all the quality features of the previous SLX models and enhances them with Shimano's innovative I-DC4 Digital Control System.
The brilliance of this technology is seen in the four different modes that can be used to maximize casting performance and avoid line issues. The exclusive Shimano I-DC4 Digital Control System is seamlessly integrated into the compact body of the SLX DC and offers four auto-casting settings. Mode 1 allows for maximum cast distance with minimal brake force, Mode 2 is specifically designed for braided lines, Mode 3 is ideal for fluorocarbon or stiffer lines, and Mode 4 provides maximum control for techniques like skipping.
The SLX DC does not require batteries as it generates power from the spool rotation, making fishing even more convenient. The HAGANE body made of aluminium forms the solid frame for the precision gear, while the S3D aluminium spool minimizes vibrations when casting and retrieving. In size 70/71, the lightweight MGL III spool provides impressive casting distances with small baits.
For anglers looking for an affordable reel with Shimano's exclusive Digital Control System, the SLX DC is the perfect choice.
