Shimano Adds Two New Sizes to the Tranx Series Fishing Reels

Shimano Adds 300 and 400 Size Reel Models To Tranx Series. When the situation calls for a reel durable enough to cast larger lures and fight bigger fish, and is equally at home in either fresh or saltwater, Shimano offers two new sizes to its Tranx baitcasting reel series – the 300 and 400. Joining the popular Tranx 500HG and 500PG (a huge favorite among musky anglers and saltwater tuna and striper anglers alike), each new Tranx is offered in four models – the Tranx 300, 400, left-hand retrieve 301 and 401 with powerful 5.8:1 gear ratios; and the Tranx 300HG, 400HG, left-hand retrieve 301HG and 401HG, all with fast 7.6:1 gear ratios. Both sizes also feature Shimano’s X-Ship bearing supported pinion gear and High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) super strong no flex frame and gearing. Both fresh and saltwater anglers know that keeping their lure in the water longer is going to trigger more strikes, plus accurate casts to busting tuna and stripers can be a huge advantage. Within the freshwater fishing world, bass anglers now have the needed reels for throwing big swimbaits, umbrella rigs and big deep diving cranks. Check out a Tranx 300 and get ready for a blast. The Tranx HG reels retrieve 40-inches of line per crank with their single handle and durable, lightweight CI4+ knob. The 300 size reels will hold up to 190 yard of 50-pound test PowerPro (or 180 yards of 14-pound mono), while the 400 size Tranx can handle 170-yards of 65-pound PowerPro (or 260 yards of 14-pound mono.) For more information on the new Tranx 300 and 400 size reels, see your local tackle dealer – visit the Shimano web site at fish.shimano.com – or call Shimano’s product support team at 877-577-0600 (6 am to 5 pm Pacific Standard Time).
