AFTA Winner: Tranx 300A & Jewel Swimbait Combo

[Scroll down to watch video]
For a winning combo designed for throwing big lures at big fish, look no further than the Jewel Swimbait 7120 rod paired up with a Tranx 300A reel, both from Shimano! The Shimano Tranx 300A is designed to go toe-to-toe with the toughest predators. The Tranx series comes in a range of sizes, but the 300A comes in 5.8:1 and 7.6:1 ratios, and has an ergonomic double handle. The Hagane Body provides a rigid yet highly durable outer shell that’s free from body flexing. Additionally, High Efficiency Gearing (HEG) leverages an enlarged drive and pinion gear that is further supported by X-Ship for the ultimate in smooth operation. The Jewel Swimbait rod is 7’10” and comes as a 2-piece. This beast is rated at 8-15kg, and can cast baits weighing up to 5oz! Like all the rods in the upgraded Jewel series, the Jewel Swimbait rod is built on a T45 blank and fitted with Fuji K Alconite guides, combining high end contruction and superior value. The construction of the T45 blank sets the Jewel apart from traditional graphite construction, where a graphite tape is linear rolled at 45í and is then reinforced by two opposing angled premium graphite sheets, creating a light yet extremely strong blank. The Tranx 300A and Jewel Swimbait rod are definitely a match made in heaven for the big bait lovers!
