Shimano Tranx 200

Tranx 200 is built to withstand the harshest saltwater environments. After over a decade of corrosion study, Shimano has developed a reel concept that will deliver long lasting durability and performance for inshore anglers around the world.



Total Protection: The concept of COREPROTECT is simple... to provide water resistance without creating a heavy rotation feeling. There are three key areas of the reel that require protection; the roller clutch, the body and the line roller.

Hagane Body

The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body stiffness and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.


These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearing's rotation.

Waterproof Drag

With the use of rubber gaskets the drag is sealed against intrusion of the elements such as water and dust.

Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D)

Shimano's S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum constructed spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.

Cross Carbon Drag

This drag material provides a wider range of drag settings, along with the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.

SVS Infinity

Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.

5 of 5 Workhorse of a reel! August 22, 2021
Reviewer: flbasspaddler from South Florida  
I already own the 300 model and wanted the 200 for inshore topwater fishing and this reel doesn't disappoint! It casts beautifully and reel puts the hammer down on the bigger predators lurking under the docks. I would definitely recommend this reel for anyone looking for a great inshore topwater reel or something to tame the bigger freshwater species!
