An addition to the highly-touted family of SLX reels, the SLX MGL 70 features Shimano's low inertia MGL Spool in an ultra-compact 70-size reel. The MGL Spool excels in the castability of both finesse and heavy lures, while the compact size of the SLX MGL 70 makes it a perfect reel for light-line applications as well as flipping and pitching with lightweight lures. But don't count the SLX MGL 70 out in heavy-cover situations because of its compact size, the Cross Carbon Drag provides more than enough stopping power to keep trophy bass out of the trees. The SLX MGL 70 incorporates Shimano's SVS Infinity Braking System to increase casting distance and enables anglers to achieve the ideal cast by easily making adjustments from the palming side plate to match changing weather conditions or casting a variety of lures. Like the rest of the SLX family, Shimano built the SLX MGL 70 with the same tournament-ready, rigid HAGANE Body to provide anglers increased durability and a lifetime of performance.
