Shimano TranX Reel

32 posts in this topic

Holy Smokes!!!! Looks awesome.... Sure hope they make a lefty or l'll be bummed. Not sure why they'd build it with a disengaging levelwind though. That is my only gripe with the Curado 300. That reel looks super powerful and fast, and i like the white "trini' style" handle knob. Should be awesome!

 

Can't wait to find out more info on these.

Woah, thanks for sharing. I guess that's the new Shimano for 2012, pretty damn cool. Awesome muskie action at the end too, looks like a killer muskie reel for big blades.

 

Have any estimate on price? Although, to me, the reel looks huge in the video....it looks much taller than a Revo.

I also heard/saw rumors of a $500 price tag.  Supposed to be Shimanos answer to the Revo-Toro.  I own the Shimano Curado 300 and my father owns the Revo-Toro.  No question that the Toro has bigger gears and more pull power.  Makes those double 10's seem like a half ounce spinner bait.  I think they are going to have a demo for the TranX at the Muskie show over in Chicago this weekend.
