CAIUS 150B 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.

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...
The Super Free bearing-supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can actually drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is di...
