2022 year model

A versatile and technical reel that can handle lightweight lures as well as big baits.

The sophisticated low-profile body houses the highly regarded I-DC5 unit, which is also found in the popular Calcutta Conquest DC. The SLX DC XT has been refined for even better long casting performance, anti-backlash performance, and resistance to wind and other weather conditions.

The ultra-thin Magnum Light Spool III ensures quick start-up of rotation, making it especially effective for lightweight lures, allowing you to shoot the lure under narrow overhangs with a low trajectory. The micro-modular gears in the drive system provide smooth and powerful reeling, and the three gear ratio variations make it suitable for all kinds of lures, from makimono to shooting lures.

Intelligent Digital Control braking system that allows anglers to fine tune their reel to the perfect setting for each line/lure combination and achieve trouble-free, ultimate distance casting. I-DC5 has 2 sets of dial adjustment. With the inside dial, you can select the type of line being used: Nylon (Mono), Fluorocarbon, and Braided (PE) Line. The outside dial adjustment is based on the lure type: 1. Big Lures (5/8-1oz), 2. Medium Lures (3/8-3/4oz), 3. Small Lures (1/4-7/16oz) and 4. Finesse Lures (3/16-1/4oz). There is also the ‘AUTO’ function, letting the onboard DC decide optimal brake setting. The I-DC5 breaking system uses more magnets to assist braking than the previous systems. With the addition of a ring magnet, brake force can be applied more evenly. This increases maximum spool revolution by 12% at the start of a cast.


State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analyzed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection. Further improving smooth gear feeling and reducing sound.


X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.


The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.


The MGL III Spool is an ultra-thin spool that thoroughly pursues low inertia. The spool has a reduction in inertia by about 15% compared to the second-generation MGL Spool by using a narrow shape with a width of 19 mm for the outer diameter of 34 mm. Resulting in unparalleled casting performance.
