The Shimano CIS151A Caius Baitcasting Reel is versatile and compact. It is designed with lightweight lure casting in mind. The braking system on this reel has been upgraded and therefore casts much easier. This baitcasting reel are entry level reels. Perfect for the beginner or economy angler.

  • Improved gear meshing for smoother rotation
  • Super free spool
  • High cast rating
  • High crank power
  • Star drag
  • HEG (see specifications for more detail)
  • VBS (see specifications for more detail)
HEG: Consists of gears, the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. Shimano has increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece stampled sideplate, Shimano has eliminated flex in the drive train that causes gears to bind under pressure.

VBS: Uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. When turned on, the individual brake weights are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, cuasing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure with which the brake weights contact the raceway lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning.
