Providing tournament-level performance and quality at a price point all anglers can appreciate, this Shimano SLX Casting Rod and Reel combo offers anglers a multitude of potential combinations to cover a diverse range of techniques. SLX Casting Rods are built with a number of quality components, including a custom Shimano Reel seat, titanium oxide guides for years of dependable performance, and comfortable high-density EVA grips that pair perfectly with the sleek cosmetics of SLX. Whether you are throwing topwater lures to schooling bass or pitching your favorite creature bait into matted grass, the high-quality 30-ton graphite SLX blanks deliver the optimal blend of strength, sensitivity, and action.

Perfectly pairing up with SLX rods, the SLX casting reel provides that same high-performance not commonly seen in a reel this price. Built on a Hagane Body that is 20% more compact than the Shimano Caenan and yet retains the same line capacity, the compact SLX palms exceptionally well while allowing the angler to pack on enough line for long casts. The body of the SLX is made entirely of highly rigid metals that produce a solid platform that both reduces weight and eliminates reel flexing when cranking on fish or pulling them out of heavy cover. The VBS centrifugal braking system is extremely user-friendly and effective at preventing backlashes and increasing casting distance in a variety of conditions. Shimano offers the SLX casting reel in both left and right hand as well as 3 different gear ratios - further cementing SLX as a tournament-level offering at an affordable price that anglers of all ages and skill levels are sure to enjoy.

I bought the 7’ MH 150xg combo. I really like it for 3/8oz and 1/2oz baits. Little heavy for 1/4oz I think. Overall great combo

Head a lot of good things about the SLX. Nice light combo that feels good in the hands. Great, smooth casting reel that is hard to birds nest. The SLX rod and reel have quickly become my favorite fishing gear.

This is an awesome combo I went with MF and I use if for top water buzz baits and small jigs. It was the only setup that caught me fish this summer.
ProsPrice, quality, even at full price it?s worth the buy.

Shimano SLX combo
April 21, 2020
I normally buy combos, just quicker and easier for me do run out a grab one. This is hands down my favorite combo. the reel cast smooth and easy the crank is even smoother. the rod is of excellent quality and I have had zero issues with either all year. I mainly kayak fish so at times my casting ability is very limited when so I always pick up my SLX.
ProsSmooth casting and reel
Consnone so far

Best budget combo

Both the rod and especially the reel punch way above their price range

Great Bang for the Buck Combo
February 10, 2020
You will not find a better all around bass casting combo at this pricepoint than this. Went with the 6'10" MH with the SLX150HG reel and it is perfect for topwater, bladed jigs and spinnerbaits. Rolled with it all summer and have no complaints.
ProsGreat price
ConsNo external break setting on the reel, but for me that is not a deal breaker as the internal break are easy to set and once you get them where you want it there is no need to fiddle with them.

Second time the charm!

Lost my first rod/reel combo to Dave Jones Locker after 1 day! Doh! Bought the same MH/F combo and used it for a few weeks now. Initially, I thought this setup was too stiff for the 1/2 to 3/4 oz baits I was throwing, but after some time, I’m very pleased with the way it casts and handles frogs, top water, and buzz baits. Great rod for Bass and snakeheads! TD customer service was a welcome relief do deal with and really helped me out. Will definitely look here first for future purchases!
ProsLight weight, great casting distance, no backlashes.
ConsYep, it does NOT float.

I own this in the medium action rod, for the price it is great quality. Best off shelf combo I’ve ever bought. Perfectly balanced combo
ProsPrice. Quality

Performs and is comfortable
May 19, 2019
$100 rod and a $100 for 160? Plus get 10% off. This is a hard to beat set up. I have the medium heavy with the HG reel and am very pleased. No doubt I would buy again. Only reason I'm not buying more is I already have all the rods I "need".
ProsComfortable rod and reel Smooth casting (rarely gets a nest and it bombs) Smooth reeling
ConsReel is not very adjustable

Great looking combo
March 29, 2019
This is a great looking combo. Reel seems to be the best I have ever owned. As I type this I will add I have not used the combo but comparing with the many rods and reels I have owned. This combo is on top of the list.
