Stuffed with Shimano's latest technologies in a super-compact, lightweight profile, the Shimano Aldebaran MGL 50 Baitcasting Reel is the lightest high-performance reel in the Shimano lineup. It has a 10-bearing drag system (9BB + 1RB) with a maximum of 10 lbs of drag. It boasts the Magnumlite Spool to lower the moment of inertia and to improve the casting distance by up to 20%.

Featuring a Hagane body for strong performance without tilting or warping despite a lightweight body, it's also fortified with Shimano's flagship reel technologies: X-Ship technology for more smoothness and durability, Cross Carbon Drag for a wider set of drag settings, Silent Tune for reduced vibration of the bearings during high-speed rotation, and CI4+ for the ultimate lightweight performance.

Overall, the Aldebaran is a super "finesse-y" baitcasting reel. It's super small and "palmable," is a wonderful caster in presentations ranging from smooth, easy casting motions, to quick, overhead snap casts. When matched with a light, sensitive rod, you can almost fish the Aldebaran MGL as if it was a spinning reel, and can even toss light drop shot rigs, weightless Senkos, or Ned rigs.

The Shimano Aldebaran MGL 50 is available in 6.5:1 and 7.4:1 Gear Ratios in both Left and Right Hand retrieve.

Shimano Aldebaran MGL 51HG

This reel is a joy to have on the water all day. It's so light and smooth to use and makes throwing light baits easy. It's worth every penny you spend on it.

Finesse casting

This reel excels at skpping light jigs and plastic under docks. I'm hooked on these Shimano MGL spools too. I got a Metanium mgl for frogging and big swimbaits and absoltely love it too.
