*First photo is of the SL6 in turquoise but the SL8 is basically the same thing just larger.
The SL8 is the largest of all the Shilton reels. This reel has a track record of 20 years in the most remote and hostile environments targeting powerful adversaries like tuna, sailfish and marlin. The robust design is crafted from solid 6082 T6 high grade bar stock aluminum and features a custom-processed cork drag with enclosed one-way plungers. The SL8 accommodates 14 to 16 weight lines with a backing capacity that is larger than any reel on the market. It can be ordered with an incoming and outgoing click or silent outgoing with an incoming click. Color options are titanium, black, blue, turquoise, purple, red, gold or any custom color combo you like (call or email us).
