In Shimano’s latest reel release, we bring you a low profile baitcaster. Well at least it looks like one. The Tranx has a large line capacity built for much larger fish than your traditionally low profile baitcaster. It’s light, powerful with versatility and is suited for the harshest saltwater fishing scenarios.

The Tranx can basically do it all. Whether your casting lures, live baiting, jigging, trolling, spinning rock walls or drifting deeper reefs, the Tranx will not let you down.

It is an ultimate in large level wind casting baitcaster’s available on the market today. The Tranx has some of the greatest features that Shimano has to offer including the X-SHIP. The Tranx also offers a VBS cast control system, allowing the angler to fine tune the reels casting ability to suit their favourite lure or bait setup, seven shielded AR-B bearing and super stopper help for smooth operation with minimal back play. A Dartanium drag punching an 11kg max setting should stop those big rampaging fish; a large power handle provides the ultimate grip in the heat of battle and while working lures.

The Tranx is a perfect reel for the dedicated angler in search of doing almost everything. With two versions, the 500 HG and 500PG choose what suits you for your fishing adventures.
