Shimano’s SLX DC 150 baitcasting reel

Shimano’s line of baitcasting reels just got a lot more impressive at the ICAST trade show in early July with the introduction of its Digital Control (DC) braking system in a reel, the SLX DC 150, that’s within reach of more anglers’ budgets.

The reel features Shimano’s SLX low-profile style with the same I-DC4 digital brake control system already featured on the Curado DC series, a system that flattens out the learning curve for anglers new to baitcasting reels, helping eliminate the backlashes so many experience.

The SLX 150 DC is offered in both right- and left-hand retrieves, and in three gear ratios: 6.2-to-1, 7.4-to-1 and 8.5-to-1.

MSRP is $189.99.
