Product details
Official manufacturer description

Following in the Concept Z's footsteps of innovation, the 13 Fishing Concept Z SLD Baitcasting Reels reimagine the traditional system of magnetic braking adjustment. Featuring an all new SLIDE magnetic cast control system, anglers can adjust their braking with the flick of their thumb without missing a single cast. The thumb switch located on top of the reel directly alongside the spool allows for quick braking adjustments at a moment's notice. Anglers of all skill levels will be able to make long, bombing casts with little braking, and then immediately ramp the braking up to make quick casts against the wind or skip baits under docks or low hanging structure. By combining the magnetic SLIDE braking with 13 Fishing's new Low-Friction centrifugal braking, the perfect cast in any conditions is always attainable.

Zero Corrosion CZB Bearings and an Advanced Polymer drag system are housed within the new Cast Iron Carbon frame and side plates for performance that is smooth, ultra lightweight, and extremely durable for many seasons out on the water. With all these features, the SLD sets the bar extremely high for innovation in a way that would make the original Concept Z proud.

This is one of the more advanced and universal baitcasting reels on the market. The slide feature on the side of the reel near the spool is terrific for controlling braking with very easy drag access. It is so mechanically sound that it can cast a mile! Incredible ergonomics, all around feel, and performance! Great for all types of freshwater fishing, specifically bass (largemouth, smallmouth, spotted, white), walleye, crappie, and many more!
