It’s been really hard for us to keep quiet about this one! Anyone who has called in to the shop knows all of our staff is in love with the DC (digital control) technology from Shimano. We highly recommend a DC reel for both the novice angler, as well as the expert caster. No matter your skill, the DC technology will take your casting and fishing to a whole new level. Historically, there has only been one problem: cost. This piece of tech was implemented in only high end reels over the $400 price point. Last year, Shimano shocked the industry by introducing the Curado DC (a staff favorite) at the $249.99 price point.
Well, this year, Shimano has made another release in the DC world: the SLX DC. Many of you are familiar with the standard SLX…..a wonderful reel. This takes the same characteristics of the SLX and adds the DC technology. The best part: they somehow managed to keep the price under $200. This reel is only $189.99 (and free shipping from American Legacy)!!!! We were able to test these reels out a few months ago. Rather than beat around the bush trying to come up with superlatives to describe how great this reel is, let us be blunt: If you are buying a reel in the $200 price range, and don’t at least try a Shimano SLX DC, we feel you are making a mistake!
This reel is unlike any $200 reel the fishing world has even seen. Take your fishing to the next level….take it to the world of digital with the SLX DC.
