CAIUS 150A Baitcast

The Shimano Caius is a compact, versatile, and durable bait casting reel, designed with light weight lure casting and Shimano Engestsu Sliding lures in mind. Reducing the overall size of the new Caius from 200 to 150 specs, and an upgraded the braking system, means the reels cast much easier with more accuracy and a pleasure to hold in the hand for all day use.

Available from all Shimano retailers nationwide.
