THE Shimano Tranx is designed to go toe to toe with the toughest saltwater and freshwater predators.
This series of baitcasting reels has been resized and specced up to meet the demands of anglers looking for a big bait specialist. For Aussie anglers, the Tranx is perfectly suited to trolling for barra, micro jigging for your favourite reef species and swimbaiting for Murray cod.
The incorporation of Hagane Body provides the Tranx with a rigid yet highly durable outer shell free from body flexing, which transforms the angler’s actions directly into cranking power when under load. Additionally, High Efficiency Gearing leverages an enlarged drive and pinion gear that is further supported by X-Ship for the ultimate in smooth operation.
Providing unrivalled saltwater protection is CoreProtect. This unique Shimano technology involves the application of a hydrophobic spray to key areas of the reel, ensuring bulletproof performance in all conditions. Available in both a 300 (5.8:1 and 7.6:1) and 400 (7.6:1) size, the Tranx features 5+1 bearings and outputs 10kg and 8kg of drag, respectively.
Despite being larger in size, the Tranx maintains a low-profile design and remains extremely ergonomic.
Appealing to a range of fishing styles, the AHG models come fitted with a Power Knob and the A model comes fitted with a double paddle handle.
Maintaining all the tough-as-nails attributes that have earned its larger predecessors a reputation for reliability in the saltwater market, the new Shimano Tranx sets the bar in terms of raw power and performance.
