Shimano Tranx 300A HG/301A HG Baitcaster

The Shimano Tranx is the next level in saltwater resistant baitcast reels. The Tranx incorporates Shimano’s class leading CoreProtect concept that maintains a smooth and free feel while winding. It is ideally suited to both freshwater and saltwater applications, ranging from light jigging, softbaiting or casting hardbody lures. The Shimano Tranx baitcaster reels are not only ergonomic in the hand, packed with more than enough drag, durable and strongly built, are also highly water resistant.

Hagane Body
HAGANE Body means this reel has a high rigidity and zero twist. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the anglers actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.

X-Ship stands for Extra, Smooth and High Power. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with SA-RB bearings (on Stella models) and introducing a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased gearing efficiency and higher power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation for less effort, even under heavy loads. This increases the efficiency of the reel, meaning it will stay smoother and perform at its peak for much longer

The concept of CoreProtect is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection: the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.

The Shimano Stable Spool Design technology features balanced and uniform thin wall aluminium construction throughout the spool. This precision significantly reduces spool vibration and creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving.

Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings are similar to A-RB, but feature additional shields for the ultimate in protection

Super Free Spool
Eliminates friction on the spool shaft for increased free spool. The result is a longer cast requiring less effort.

Variable Braking System controls casts and prevents backlashes.

Cross Carbon Drag
This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, for the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.
