SLX Question

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

SLX Question

Post by nycangler » Mon Sep 26, 2022 8:24 am

Hello,

In terms of grip/palming the reel. Is the SLX 70 MGL smaller in size than the SLX XT?Also, are the spools between the SLX 70 MGL and the SLX XT interchangeable?
Any info is appreciated.

Thanks

The frame of the 70 is the same frame as the XT. I believe I swapped spools at one point and things seemed to fit fine. I didn't fish or cast with the spools swapped though.
