Designed to provide high-end performance and feel in a featherlight package, the Shimano Aldebaran MGL makes use of all of Shimano’s top reel technologies to provide the angler the ultimate finesse casting reel. Built around a compact 50 size Hagane Concept body, the Aldebaran MGL weighs in at an almost unnoticeable 4.8 ounces which allows for effortless casting all day long with reduced angler fatigue. If you are looking to fish light baits down to even 1/16oz on casting gear will find this reel to be in the top of its class thanks to an extensive list of flagship features Shimano is known for.

Shimano Aldebaran MGL Features:
  • Hagane Body - A reel body with high rigidity, which virtually eliminates body flexing due to it’s stiffness and impact resistance. The result? An angler’s actions are more efficiently transformed into cranking power. It’s efficiency through strength.
  • X-Ship - By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear remains in precise alignment with the drive gear and stays in the same position under even the heaviest of loads. This eliminates friction between the spool shaft and gear which translates to better casting performance and increased gear durability.
  • S A-RB Bearings - These bearings undergo the same anti-corrosion process as Shimano’s A-RB Bearings, with the addition of shields on both sides of the bearings to reduce the possibility of salt, dirt, or other foreign objects inhibiting the bearing’s rotation.
  • MGL Spool - Lightweight spool design significantly reduces the moment of inertia, allowing the angler to experience greater casting distance and accuracy with a wide variety of lures.
  • Silent Tune - By applying slight pressure to the bearing supporting the spool, Silent Tune reduces spool vibration during the cast which results in quieter casting and smoother spool rotation with less play.
  • Cross Carbon Drag - Allows for a wider range of drag settings, enhanced drag washer durability, and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
