Boasting a long list of premium features that make it THE casting reel of choice for Shimano?s professional bass anglers, the Shimano Metanium MGL offers feel and performance that puts it at the top of it?s class. Fans of the original Metanium will love the addition of Magnumlite Spool, which creates a very low moment of inertia and increases casting distance by up to 20%. When it comes to braking, SVS Infinity Braking is employed in Metanium MGL to allow the angler to quickly adjust brakes ?on the fly? based on changing lures or conditions. Silent Tune Technology is also present, which significantly reduces bearing noise for a new level of silence and smoothness during the retrieve. Available in 3 different gear ratios from 6.2 to 8.5:1, the Shimano Metanium MGL provides the user with top-tier performance for a variety of species and techniques.
