« on: August 03, 2019, 06:05:13 PM »

Anyone use one? Kind of surprised it's $90 bucks more than a regular SLX

What surprised me is that they are taking market value from the Curado. You can now get into a DC reel at a very reasonable price...  It may be my next reel just to check it out.

No DC for me, but I have the regular one and like it. Im kinda over the DC reels they are coming out with. Not a true DC to me.

Only because my brother is looking into the SLX (yes he used my reading ) and he asked me what a DC is but my guess is as good as his, so what is a DC compared to a normal SLX?

DC is "Digital Control". A computer chip based cast control system.

Everything is fine until the Russians hack your reel in mid-cast

I have only played with mine in the yard. I bought it for kayak and bank fishing where I have a lot going on and are often swapping rods/reels/lures quickly. I think the DC is of, uh, reel benefit where one might have their hands full multi-tasking.

The SLX DC is very resistant to over running and bird nesting and cast light lures best I can tell thus far nicely. The DC braking system definitely is evident and at work when casting.
