In life, there are men and there are gods. In fishing, there are fishing reels, and then there's the Shimano Metanium DC.

Yes, it's just a fishing reel, but just like it would be an insult to say a Ferrari or classic Corvette is just a car, Shozaburo Shimano would likely be rolling in his grave if he heard the Metanium DC referred to as just a fishing reel - this thing is divine.

Jam-packed with Shimano's latest technologies, the Shimano Metanium DC Baitcasting Reel combines tournament-grade versatility, high-performance gearing, and intelligent electronics in a lightweight package. It has a 10-bearing drag system (9BB + 1RB) with a maximum of 11 pounds of drag. It also boasts the Digital Control braking system that utilizes a microcomputer to monitor spool speed 1,000 times every second and precisely apply the perfect amount of pressure, so you can cast a country mile and never have to worry about backlash. There is even an internal setting for line type, so the microcomputer chip can optimize the reel for braided, fluorocarbon, and monofilament lines.

Additionally, its Hagane body exhibits strong performance and does not tilt or warp despite its light weight. And to top it all off, the Metanium DC is fortified with Shimano's newest set of reel technologies: X-Ship technology for more smoothness and durability, MicroModule Gearing to ensure frictionless gyration, and S3D for consistent spool control and brake force.

Available in 7.4:1 and 8.5:1 gear ratios in both Right and Left Hand retrieve.

Casts like a Beast!

So this Shimano Metanium DC Baitcaster is amazing. I can cast as hard and far as I can, and it's difficult to get this thing to backlash, although it is possible. I wouldn't think of handing one of my sensitive old-school baitcasters to my wife to let her try it (unless I wanted to pick out the birdnest), but she was able to cast with this one ease, with the DC motor seeming to slow the spool down just in time for the lure to hit the water. Otherwise, you can get the distance on your casts with no problem. My only gripe is that I had to search youtube to find a good video on how to fine-tune it and what all the settings do. Anyway, I love this thing.

God-like

If you want a reel where you can absoltely chuck a lure across the lake, this is THE reel you want in your arsenal. My favorite applications for it are frogs and big oversized crankbaits. You can just dump the spool and then just crank away. Super smooth, and you gotta love that little whiz of the dc motor. Overall, straigh up god llike.
