40 years ago, Shimano released it’s first baitcast reel, Bantam, to the market. This began what is now a legacy of durable and high performance casting reels.
The 2018 Bantam MGL establishes a new benchmark for rigidity. The new CoreSolid Body design combines multiple parts and integrates the B-side, frame and levelwind guard into a single aluminum piece with unmatched solidity. This full aluminum construction will give anglers the rigid feeling of a round reel, with the ergonomics and comfort of a low profile reel. MGL Spool reduces spool inertia to improve casting distance and ease pitching and flipping. This reel is loaded with all of the innovative “bells & whistles” that make a HUGE difference on the water. The new Bantam MGL is going to be a hot reel in 2018. Pre-Order yours now, and be one of the first to put one of these on the water!
The smoothest most efficient drivetrain in a spinning reel is now even smoother and more efficient with improved durability. Introducing the new Shimano Stella.The new Micro Module II provides a new ideal gear design and gear teeth surface for amazing smoothness and nearly twice the strength of Shimano’s already unmatched gear durability.
X-Protect makes the new Stella up to five times more resistant to the long term damaging effects of water than the previous model, so every turn of the handle is sure to feel as good as new even after years of use. Plus, new Silent Drive, long stroke spool, tangle proof rotor design, and a host of other new high end features means Stella truly represents a benchmark in Shimano spinning reels. The new Stella FJ is projected to be available by the end of March but is available for pre-order today!
