A workhorse of a reel - the Shimano Caenan Casting Reel is designed to fish many different styles of lures - from worms and jigs to fast moving spinnerbaits and crankbaits. Offering proven Shimano performance at a more affordable price point, the Caenan is loaded with features, and also approved for saltwater use. Shimano s exclusive Lo-Mass Spool allows for easy start up inertia, making casting even the lightest baits easy, while the reel s VBS (Variable Brake System) with a Reduced Mass Hub provides easy and precise casting control. Six shielded stainless steel ball bearings also ensure smooth functioning, and help facilitate the Caenan s high speed 6.5:1 retrieve, while the Super Stopper and Assist Stopper anti-reverse virtually eliminate backplay for rock solid hooksets. Furnishing all day ergonomic comfort, High Density EVA Power Grips combine with a rigid light weight Drilled Handle Shank to also generate excellent winding power. Always up to the task - the Shimano Caenan Casting Reel is a versatile, high quality reel - available for a great price.
