For little reel, the new SLX DC bait caster is highly smart.
Shimano created the SLX DC to introduce anglers to the same technology as the Curado DC at a lower price point to encourage anglers to take that next step.
The SLX DC uses the same I-DC4 technology to control the spool and the signature HAGANE frame for strength and the Curado DC, with the only tangible difference being both X-ship and micro module gearing have been excluded to differentiate between the two models. Anglers wanting to gain extra distance with their casts, using either softballs or lures will want to check out the new SLX DC.
