The new Metanium DC comes equipped with Shimano's new DC brake system called I-DC5 which has 2 sets of dial adjustments.
With the inner dial, you can select the type of line used: Nylon, Fluorocarbon or PE Line. The outer dial allows you to select lure size: large lures (18-30g), medium lures (10-20g), small lures (8-12g) or finesse lures (5-8g). Alternatively, you can select the "auto" function which internal Digital Controller(DC) adjust to the optimal brake setting.
I-DC5 is a new DC braking system that uses more magnets to optimize braking compared to other systems. With the addition of a ring magnet, brake force can be applied more evenly increasing maximum spool revolutions by 12% at the start of a cast. Simply put, the Metanium DC Casting Reel allows longer, more consistent casts!
