The Shimano Corvalus baitcasting reels offer top quality at a very affordable price. With a diecast aluminum frame and aluminum sideplates, the Metal Series frames not only keep moving parts in precise alignment, they also feature the use of the latest anodizing, plating and painting techniques for beautiful and durable finishes. Other key features include Shimano's Variable Brake System (VBS) to aid in controlling the cast and Super Stopper with Assist Stopper to ensure instant hook setting power. The Corvalus 400 and 401 reels are equipped with Non-Disengaging Levelwind System and clicker.

Shimano Corvalus Baitcasting Reel Features

  • Variable Brake System (VBS)
    Uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast for increased distance and adjustability.
  • Super Stopper
    One-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets.
  • Assist Stopper
    Back-up anti-reverse system that reduces the stress placed on the one-way roller bearing to increase durability.
  • Non-Disengaging Levelwind System (only on 400 and 401 models)
    Allows the levelwind to track back and forth during the cast which reduces drastic line angles that cause unwanted friction and backlashes on wide-spool reels.
  • Metal Series
    Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.
  • Two Post Quick Take Down
    By unscrewing the thumb screws the sideplate can be easily removed for maintenance or to adjust the VBS brake weights.
  • Rubber Handle Grip
    Comfortable and soft to the touch.
  • Diecast Aluminum Frame
  • Aluminum Sides
  • Clicker (available on models 400 and 401)
    Increases the tension on freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites.
  • Aluminum Spool

Best $80 reel on the market
February 28, 2015
I fished this reel, actually two of them, were my catfish reels for 2 years. Awesome beginner reels, price is great, work great. Very smooth and solid. Don't waste your money on ABU's junk $80 reels. This reel in the 400/401 size is great. The drag is fine for fish up to about 25-30lbs, and they'll definitely work it a bit. I caught many 15-20lb flatheads on this reel with ease. Casts far, love these things.
ProsPrice, smooth, sturdy, well made, good line capacity, comes in left hand
ConsOnly 11lbs drag Clicker switch is in a weird location
