Shimano Metanium MET100 Casting Reel is for the avid fisherman and tournament bass angler looking for lightweight versatile performance and amazing durability. Weighing in at 6 ounces (6.2 oz. for XG model), Shimano offers three gear ratios in both right hand and left hand retrieve. The MET100 (RH) and MET101 (LH) has the "classic" 6.2:1 retrieve and the MET100HG (RH) and MET101HG (LH) a 7.4:1 retrieve. These ratios allow optimum retrieve speed for fishing jig & worm, jerkbait, and spinnerbait. The Metanium MET100XG (RH) and MET101HG (LH) with its super fast 8.5:1 retrieve is the perfect choice for flipping or punching.
Shimano Metanium Casting Reel is a fantastic addition to the Shimano low profile casting reel line and includes Shimano's newest Micro Module Gear System Technology which creates an unbelievably smooth retrieve. This new gear technology uses smaller gear teeth and more of them. This means more solid contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear. The result is a more efficient gear train with less gear "feel". This is one of the smoothest reels you will ever hold in your hand!
Metanium reels feature the newest Shimano innovation in the brake system technology, SVS Infinity. This provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use 'inner friction' against the raceway during the cast, the SVS system controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either changing conditions or when you switch baits.
Also included in these state-of-the-art low profile casting reels is Shimano's X-Ship technology which provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer, more precise casts.
If you insist on high performance Shimano's legendary quality then the Metanium is your reel!
