Known in fishing circles as the workhorse of the Shimano baitcaster range, the new Shimano Caenan fishing reel has had a facelift for its 2016 release. Now is the time to upgrade with introductory pricing set to entice many a Caenan fan to strap on the new model without delay.
The first thing you will notice is that aesthetics have changed. The new model looks something akin to a stealth fighter with its shiny black sleek colouring, aggressive, low profile lines and red highlights. The size has changed from 100 to 150, yet weight is still classically low at 205 grams. There are two models from which to choose with a high geared, super-fast 7.2:1 ratio now offered.
Shimano have remained true to the Caenan principal of providing an affordable baitcaster that is simply jam packed with useful features. Its ‘refined workhorse’ personality is still a feature but one look will tell you that the Caenan is growing up.
Of course, as in the past, it will be deployed throughout the inshore grounds and will prove even more capable of getting into those difficult to reach places. Anglers will notice improved casting manners that will provide them with even better access to the snags and structure. Fishing the rivers and impoundments for Barra, Bass and Cod is now even better. Casting length and accuracy allows you to keep your distance yet still hit the spot cast after cast.
The new Caenan fishing reel sports plenty of goodies for its modest price tag including four SA-RB bearings, consistent braking performance (SVS Infinity), High Efficiency Gearing (HEG), Variable Brake System (VBS) and the S3D spool design. They’re features that make using the Caenan a breeze and enhance the overall fishing experience. It’s a fresh water master and brilliant in the salt. From Barra to Bass the new Shimano Caenan Baitcaster Reel for sale now is even more impressive than the last.
