I’m really happy with this reel. I got it for musky fishing and did it preform. I went from 4 oz lures to #5 mepps spinners with no problems. Even if I forgot to adjust it I had no backlashes. The breaking system is great.

Tranx 201
August 25, 2019
Nice upgrade to the Curado K platform, love the corrosion resistant finish and mostly the oversized handle and knobs for cranking on fish against the current in the bay and inshore. I can cast lead, spinners, bladed jigs, flyline/T-rig and i also throw light A-rigs on this thing no problem. Only wish they made the 201 in all gear ratios!! Another let-down for lefty anglers.
Overall, i liked the Tranx 201 so much i bought a second one to replace one of my Curado K's.
ProsExceptional casting, smooth powerful gearing, oversized handle/knobs, corrosion protection
ConsLack of gear ratios in left hand model

I've landed stripper's and several sturgeon on this reel. Nothing but joy! This reel is a tank and I have no hesitation running it for yellow tail & calico. I will be getting the big brother 500 only because I'm completely satisfied with this reel. I just want both. Shimano has a winner here!
ProsBuild , smoothness , quality , power , and looks great!

Smooth as silk!
April 19, 2019
I finally had a chance to use this reel last weekend out on the bay. It was an absolute pleasure to cast. It has a great feel in the hand; fits perfectly and the paddle crank was smooth as silk on every return.

No issues at all with ocean spray. Gave it a rinse after the day was done and I'm ready to head out again next weekend!

Set it up with two, opposing, brakes on.

Have not had a "bird's nest" yet.
