Features of SHIMANO SLX MGL Fishing Baitcasting Reel SLXMGL71HG

  • The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials
  • The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability
  • The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity
  • The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish
  • The lightweight MagnumLite (MGL) Spool design significantly reduces the moment of inertia at the beginning of a cast by roughly 10%
  • S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration
  • Shimano's innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity, provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force
  • S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano's A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings
  • Super Free Spool eliminates friction on the spool shaft during the cast
  • Baitcasting reels with Super Free Spool are constructed so that the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing

Product Info for SHIMANO SLX MGL Fishing Baitcasting Reel SLXMGL71HG

An addition to the highly-touted family of SLX reels, the Shimano SLX MGL 70 Fishing Baitcasting Reel features Shimano's low inertia MGL Spool in an ultra-compact 70-size reel. The MGL Spool excels in the castability of both finesse and heavy lures, while the compact size of the SLX MGL 70 makes it a perfect reel for light-line applications as well as flipping and pitching with lightweight lures. But don't count the SLX MGL 70 out in heavy-cover situations because of its compact size, the Cross Carbon Drag provides more than enough stopping power to keep trophy bass out of the trees.

The SLX MGL 70 incorporates Shimano's SVS Infinity Braking System to increase casting distance and enables anglers to achieve the ideal cast by easily making adjustments from the palming side plate to match changing weather conditions or casting a variety of lures. Like the rest of the SLX family, Shimano built the SLX MGL 70 with the same tournament-ready, rigid HAGANE Body to provide anglers increased durability and a lifetime of performance.
