  • HEG - a larger drive gear and pinion gear increase cranking efficiency.
  • SF - Superfree Bearing supported Pinion Gear eliminates friction with spool shaft for better freespool.
  • E.I. Surface treatment on the spool protects against corrosion from saltwater soaked braided line.
  • S A-RB coating protects bearings from rust in saltwater use.
  • Super Stopper eliminates handle back play.
  • VBS Brake System effectively reacts to spool rotation speed to provide ideal brake force at all times during cast.

The Tranx is very smooth. powerful, light and comfortable. Have been using it for jigging , casting and trolling of 7-12oz rubberjigs for halibut here in Norway. It can handle 80lb Halibut with no problems regarding drag, levelwind and cranking power. Fantastic reel. Switched to a Stella knob for even more comfort.
Proslight weight, smooth drag, very easy to use

TRANX - best of the best!

This reel is for the major fishing and tackle ENTHUSIEST. And yeah, I'm one! I love all my Curado 300 DSV's and all my Curado 300 EJ's. But I can see when it comes to serious man-maker fish. Out comes the TRANX. This reel is like having a Cummins Diesel engine on top of your reel seat. Everything, it was supposed to be. Now I need something to challenge it, and it needs to be HUGE! My video discussing these reels: More, articles on my fishing reports blog at:
ProsEVERYTHING, I'm a shimano low-pro junkie!
ConsCan't find anything!
