Looking for a high-performance casting reel that's not only super lightweight, but can run the gamut when it comes to freshwater fishing lures and tackle (e.g., everything from weighted Senkos to jerkbaits to froggin')? The Shimano Metanium 150 just may be exactly what you're looking for.
Jam-packed with Shimano's latest technologies, the Shimano Metanium MGL 150 Baitcasting Reel sports tournament-grade versatility and power in a lightweight package. It has an 11-bearing drag system (10BB + 1RB) with a maximum of 11 lbs of drag. Most importantly, the Metanium MGL 150 boasts Shimano's innovative Magnumlite Spool that creates a very low moment of inertia as you cast, which in turn helps improve the casting distance by up to 20%. It also features a Hagane body for strong performance without tilting or warping despite an extremely lightweight body. To top it all off, it's fortified with Shimano's flagship reel tech: X-Ship technology for more smoothness and durability, MicroModule Gearing to ensure buttery smooth gyration, and the S3D for consistent spool control and brake force.
The Shimano Metanium MGL 150 Casting Reel is available in 6.2:1, 7.4:1, and 8.5:1 gear ratios in both Left and Right Hand retrieve.
