Shimano SLX Rod and SLX DC Reel Combo at American Legacy $230
The highly rated SLX combo with the DC reel is now on sale. If you have not tried a DC reel, this is a good opportunity to upgrade. I have 4 different DC reels and think the SLX is as good as the more expensive Curado DC or Scorpian DC. Skipping, pitching or bomb casting are fun with the DC.
