Mar 18, 1. From the specs on the media release recently issued it appears the boffins have been hard at it; seemingly taking a Curado E of modest David Banner aka Bill Bixby proportions, and then morphing it into the TranX - an incredible hulk of a reel, albeit one without the green exterior of make-up wearing '80s muscle man Lou Ferrigno. Inquiring minds want to know. ReelMeMar 18, Mar 18, 6. Mar 18, 7. Mar 21, No, create an account now. Jamie was stoked and his smile would have lit up a dark night.
In this Shimano Tranx review, we will look into their features, design, and compatibility.
The HG and PG being the highest regarding drag, they are very much suitable for baiting large fishes such The worm gear can malfunction at times. The Shimano Tranx was shown to be one of the top large baitcasting reels we have ever reviewed and is perfect for large at the same time allowing the angler to apply an incredible amount of torque when fighting a fish.

Yes the Tranx HG can reel blades in faster than the PG, I can use both the PG and HG interchangeably, but over time my comfort level.
Any idear if it has an internal back up for the AR bearing ie dogs??? Totally best post of the thread. For the record the species caught casting with the TranX over on Melville included barra, threadies, blue salmon, mangrove jacks, golden snapper, tarpon, small GTs and a queenie The new Shimano TranX is a brute of a baitcasting reel and this is very evident when compared to your standard low-profile casting reel like a Curado E7.
Huge in the hand! The real reason why you persist with casting these big reels is to increase the chances of being able to stop big barra from blowing you away through tight timber or around oyster encrusted bommies.

Photos worth a thousand words. The new Shimano TranX is a brute of a baitcasting reel and this is very evident when compared to your standard low-profile casting reel like a Curado E7. However first impressions of the new TranX are indeed very favourable.
If I was fishing one, I would put the 40 Power Pro hollow on it. Mar 18, 6. For the record the species caught casting with the TranX over on Melville included barra, threadies, blue salmon, mangrove jacks, golden snapper, tarpon, small GTs and a queenie
How would anyone know? They just came out, and the only people who have fished them hard long-range are the Shimano R&D guys, and of.
I had a opportunity to get a Tranx for a good deal.

Great review! By the way im not related to Shimano this is my first Shimano since.
Johntuttle the only 16 I have is the Torsa. Cool episode out of Venice where Larry was getting bit on his "whopper plopper" lol that was easy to work with a straight grind. Of course the beast is twice the weight of these smaller reels and thus not many are going to persist with casting it all day due to wrist fatigue.
Thx for that, yea I went sniffing around there and saw that post by Larry.

Now I know that this isn't really what the TranX was designed for, but if it could do this job as well then its overall versatility would be greatly enhanced in my eyes, as its obvious capability as a heavy duty troll, cast, jig and bait fishing reel is a no brainer.

|I am now looking forward to trying out the higher-geared TRXHG model when next targeting hard-pulling Spaniards, GTs, Queenies and goldies in the waters around Darwin, using both spinning and jigging techniques.
Most of the deep species don't run far. Mar 18, 3. That was beefed up in the current trini. It is really not a low profile reel in my opinion. Who's got a Tranx and have they popped with it?

Just picked up the HG this week, however it will be a while before I get to Jig. Holding the rod so you can lay line on the reel at the same time is not.
Shop, read reviews, or ask questions about SHIMANO Tranx to spool rotation speed to provide ideal brake force at all times during cast.

I'll post what I can. Trying to halt a horse from bricking you - one hooked on a small low-profile bait-caster which only exerts a max drag of around 5kg plus the added pressure of a locked thumb on the small spool - often doesn't work and seconds later you're staring at limp braid hanging from your rod tip after being totally smoked. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account? A comparison with a "16" size reel would be ideal. Further, I wish to also thank the Tiwi Traditional owners for letting us fish on their amazing island.
