New for 2012 is the new Shimano Tranx baitcaster. It is offered in 2 models high gear (HG) and power gear (PG). It features a VBS brake system to provide ideal brake force at all times during casts, dartainium 11 drag wahers to provide smooth drag performance. Both models weigh 20.0oz. The HG model has 43in of line retrieve per crank while the PG has 30in. Both hold 210 yds of 80# Power Pro. The max drag on both is 25lbs!! Both have 7 SA-RB ball bearings. MSRP is $499.99. These reels are suppose to be out March 1, 2012 but have heard there is already a waiting list! Should be perfect for golden dorado, PNG bass, and big monster peacocks!

  1. Hi there,

    This reel would be perfect for big Barramundi in North Australia...
    But I am not sure that it will be imported here...

    Have a good day.
