Designed with the tournament bass angler and avid fisherman in mind, the Shimano Metanium Casting Reel delivers versatile, lightweight performance for a wide range of freshwater applications. Its ergonomic Magnesium frame keeps it at just 6oz (6.2oz for XG model) and Shimano’s Micro Module Gear System, X-Ship gear construction and SVS Infinity Cast Control System combine to deliver ultra smooth functioning, incredible torque, and greatly improved casting capabilities.
Offering impossibly smooth retrieves and increased efficiency, Shimano’s advanced Micro Module Gear System utilizes smaller teeth and more of them on each gear. This provides more contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear, and combined with the Metanium’s X-Ship gear construction helps the gears maintain proper alignment and better handling, especially under heavy loads.
Shimano’s newest innovation in brake system technology - SVS Infinity - also enhances casting accuracy and increases casting distance, especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob is also in a more convenient position (bottom, left side of reel) for easier one-handed operation. Available in three gear ratios, including a blazing fast 8.5:1 gear ratio, whether you like to flip, throw jerkbaits or drag worms, there is a Shimano Metanium Casting Reel perfect for the task.
