Crafted to deliver unparalleled performance in an ultra-lightweight form, the Shimano Aldebaran MGL utilizes Shimano's pinnacle technologies, offering anglers an exceptional finesse casting reel. With its 50-size Hagane Concept body, this reel barely tips the scales at 4.8 ounces, making all-day casting a breeze and reducing angler fatigue. Perfect for casting light lures down to 1/16oz, the Aldebaran MGL stands out as a top-tier option, thanks to a suite of premium features that Shimano is renowned for.
Features of the Shimano Aldebaran MGL:
- Hagane Body: Built with incredible rigidity, this body design practically eliminates flex, translating the angler's efforts more effectively into cranking power.
- X-Ship: Supports the pinion gear at both ends with bearings, maintaining precise alignment with the drive gear for enhanced casting performance and gear longevity.
- S A-RB Bearings: Treated with an anti-corrosion process similar to Shimano's A-RB bearings, and shielded on both sides to minimize the entry of salt, dirt, or other contaminants, ensuring smooth bearing rotation.
- MGL Spool: A lightweight spool design that substantially lowers rotational inertia, enabling increased casting distance and accuracy across a diverse range of lures.
- Silent Tune: Applies slight pressure on the spool's bearing, minimizing vibration during casting for quieter and smoother spool rotation.
- Cross Carbon Drag: Provides a broader range of drag settings, greater drag washer durability, and the smoothest drag performance Shimano has ever offered.
