Great reel but never used it
Purchased for fluke fishing but way heavier that I wanted. Returned it for a curado 70.better fit for my needs .... this reel did look like a monster and it does have its place

Purchased both the HG and PG
I purchased both because I couldn‚€™t make up my mind. The 400 size is perfect for coastal fishing in Southern California. Spooled with 50lb braid, I've caught everything from yellowtail and white seabass, to rockfish and lingcod. Comparing the two models, the 400HG is geared a bit too fast, and you‚€™ll feel it when fighting a larger fish. The 400PG is plenty fast at 5.8:1.
ConsWish the PG had the same handle as the HG. Purchased an HG handle from Shimano and swapped it out.

Can the 400 ahg handle Muskie? Can it also hold 100 lb power pro line, if so how much?
I would lean more towards the Shimano TranX TRX500HG. It has 25 lbs of max drag and will hold about 230 yards of power pro. The 400 ahg will maybe hold 100 yards of braid with a small max drag of 15lbs.

Would the 400 be a good reel to put on a tsunami TSCCB-7311 for tog and bottom fishing? Like fishing block island for cod,ling,sea bass, and porgies?
The 400 would be perfect to use with that rod for bottom fishing.

Bart Hegeler

Can the 300 handle up to 30' yellow fin tuna?
A 30 lb yellowfin would not be a problem for the Tranx. A 400 size might be a bit more appropriate as it has significantly higher line capacity.

May 23, 2017
Can 30lb power pro be effectively used on the 400AHG? Looking for a light, do-all baitcaster for inshore fishing. Mainly casting and chunking for blues and stripers as well as jigging for fluke, sea bass and tog. Is there a lighter model that would be better for this?
For stripers and blues the Tranx 300 would be a perfect fit. It might not be necessary to use something as large for fluke and seabass, but the Tranx 300 will be a good choice for a "do it all" baitcaster. You can look into the Curado I 200 or Chronarch MGL.

April 17, 2017
Is a 300 size Tranx the same size as a Curado 300 or perhaps a Calcutta 300?
The Tranx 300 is very similar in size to the Curado 300E. It is also similar in size to the Calcutta 300 however the Calcutta feels a bit bulkier as it is round as opposed to a low profile.

Are the 300 and 400 about the same size and just spool size is different?
The sizes of the reels are different in size, 400 larger than the 300. Thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

Can I get the power handle on the 300A?
The power handle only comes with the 7.6:1 gear ratio models (AHG). We recommend contacting Shimano with inquiries about purchasing and installing a power knob for a model that doesn't come with one.

can this reel handle anything from ling cod stripers and halibut fishing? catching fish weighing up to 30lbs looking for a baitcasting reel that can handle this type of fishing and also was looking at some abu garcias are there any recomedations there that can handle it as well?
It sounds like the Shimano Tranx would definitely be a suitable reel for the applications you are describing. The Abu Garcia Revo Beast series as well as the Daiwa Lexa 300 + 400 sizes would also be good options.

how does the left handed tranx 401 compare to tranx 500 for reeling in musky double ten bucktails.
No clue, we won't see them for 1 more month so can't give a comparison yet. The 400 size is obviously smaller.

To be included in the pre-order do I just add this to my cart while signed in? Do I have to pay now or do I wait until the reel is available?
When making a pre-order on our website you will only be charged once the item becomes in stock and ready to ship. You will likely see a "pending" charge for the total on your bank statement. This simply means that we are authorized to charge this amount when appropriate.

Your description reads "HG model has a 70 mm single handle with a Ci4+ handle knob" but I would like to know if this handle can be put on the non-HG model?
The handle would not match the HG model of the Shimano Tranx.

ts the reel handle same as the one in your pic? I have seen some models but the reel handle is different and looks like it was halved. Also, the 'SUBSCRIBE & SAVE' on the left side of the screen is obstructing and annoying. how can I get rid of it?
The 300 does come with a different size handle than the 400 and i would try refreshing your browser to try to get the add off the page.
