A New Benchmark in Rigidity? A Look inside the Shimano Bantam MGL Baitcaster

Image

Introduction: Avid baitcast reel collectors and Shimano fans will remember the original Bantam series reels, the very first low profile baitcaster from the brand. This was one of the reels that started it all. It has been four decades since that original Bantam introduction and a lot has changed not only in the industry, but also for Shimano, who has now firmly cemented themselves as a giant within the industry. At the recent Bassmaster Classic Shimano officially introduced a new generation of anglers to the series with the launch of the Bantam 150 MGL which will be offered in six different models, the Bantam MGL150, 151, 150HG, 151HG, 150XG and 151XG.
