Not only are these reels perfect for jigging or trolling, the freedom of their Free-Floating Spool lets you fire a lure or live bait with ease when an inviting target pops into view.
Sealine«-X HA/SHA Features:
  • Free-Floating Spool, separates the spool from the gear train on outcast for less friction, longer casts and faster lure drop
  • Three CRBB Super Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings
  • Massive, six-element sealed drag, ultra-smooth and consistent
  • Tough marine bronze and stainless steel gears
  • High-tensile aluminum spool, super-strong yet super light in weight
  • Two-position power handle with oversized Soft Touch grip
  • Rod clamp included

Free-Floating Spool
Floats the spool on precision ball bearings, totally disengaged from the gear train on outcast for maximum casting performance.

Best Value surf reel
March 20, 2020
Ive been using the same SL30SHA for bait fishing going on 10 years - its up to the task for any striper, blue or ray in the NJ surf. Its built like a tank, easy to maintain, casts great right out of the box, you can speed it up with a bit of tuning but its perfect for most right out of the box. Well worth the $140 - you will not find a better reel for the price.
Prosgood drag, easy to maintain, easy to cast, great line capacity for surf fishing

Great reel year old still looks brand new

I use a couple of times a month. I have caught king mackerel, big barracuda, cobia, and red snapper on it. This reel handles 65 lb braid well. I plan to buy another one. I would not consider it a 100 percent casting reel because I do not think it has any spool brake system. However I can cast live bait away from the boat with it. I rinse it off and go again. Great reel I think. I have it on a star aerial live bait rod
ProsFast, durable, sealed drag system, easy to use,
ConsWish it had casting brakes Must practice a lot to cast it good

Simplicity, ease of use and solid construction make this a great reel. I caught a 40lb yellowfin on the SH30 but maxed on the drag, this reel would have been faster getting the fish onboard.

Just bought this item and its worth the $$$. Very good quality reel, have tested it and can achieve same distance as Penn 525 supermag.
As for TackleDirect, fast delivery and price way cheaper than the local tackle shop.

Would this reel work for trolling 50 lb stainless wire line
1 Answer
It would, but I would suggest going up to the 50 size for that application. Please keep in mind that because the wire line and spool are dissimilar metals you will eventually have issues with corrosion on both the spool and wire. Be sure to rinse the reel off with freshwater after every use to slow this process. We also suggest unspooling the reel during the off-season to in crease the lifespan of the spool and wire.
