Product Description

Shimano Caius Baitcaster Reel

Handling a baitcaster fishing reel with skill is often scene as a coming of age for the angler. The baitcaster is often seen as the high end or sports car of fishing reels. This is because, traditionally, baitcasters have required a significantly higher level of skill to use effectively. The evolution of baitcaster technology has made the transition to a baitcaster from the humble eggbeater so much easier and so much more enjoyable. There is still an assumption though that the baitcaster is the posh end of fishing.

The Shimano Caius baitcaster Reel is an excellent option for your first journey into the world of baitcaster fishing. The new Caius reel for sale looks superb in full matt black, with its aggressive lines and low profile. But it’s the internals that make the Caius such an excellent real. There are a lot of high end features encased in that tiny frame considering the entry level price tag.

HEG technology provides the power and the strength. The VBS system is the real boon for the novice, as it mitigates against backlash, the traditional issue that usually turn anglers away from the baitcaster. Casting is now even longer thanks to the Super Free Spool Technology as it has significantly reduced friction when casting, friction being the enemy of the long cast.

Spool capacity is generous, and there is plenty of drag to pull up the inshore species you will be targeting. The reel is perfect deployed against Bass and Yellowbelly in the fresh and perfect for casting soft plastics at Mangrove Jack and Flathead in the salty stuff.

The Shimano Caius baitcaster Reel for sale now was designed so that the entry level baitcaster novice could cut their teeth on a classy reel that is loaded with high end technological features.
