CAENAN 150A Baitcast

Shimano has just released the NEW Caenan 150A Baitcaster Reel for the 2016 season - featuring Shimano's Stable Spool Design (S3D) technology that creates a balanced and uniform thin walled aluminium spool which reduces vibration and provides for silky smooth casts, QuickFire II Clutch Bar gives percision control back to the angler for accuracy and ergonomic all day use. The VBS suite of cast, friction and brake adjustments take care of painful “over runs” that use up valuable fishing time whilst undoing unwanted tangles.

The Caenan 150A has been selected by the team at Shimano NZ for it's abilities in both the inshore jig (Lucanus, Bottom Ship, Rock Hoper and Colt Sniper) and trout jig and lures casting fisheries.

These bearings have been through the same process as our A-RB bearings, but feature shields on both sides of the bearings that reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting the bearings rotation.
VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent sp...
A system used for easy and fast one-handed casting. The line and trigger self-center, and are within easy grasp of the angler's index finger. By pulling the line and the trigger with one hand, the bail opens and is ready to be cast.
Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
