Shimano Calais 200 Baitcasting Reel
This particular bait caster was created with the most quality features and technology representative of Shimano fishing products that have been available for over 30 years. The Shimano Calais 200 has a 4×8 digital control with a septon handle for ultimate control and no slip gripping. The drag star and handle shank are cold forged for maximum strength by using the process that was developed exclusively by Shimano in 1930. The lightweight frame and side plates are manufactured in aircraft grade aluminum, but you still have enough weight in the entire spool to know that it is a quality product.
This bait caster has a maximum fluid movement due to the highly greased bearings. This is evident in the smoothest retrieve available. The Calais 200 also includes VBS casting control for the most reliable and accurate casting. The anti-rust bearings will ensure smooth movement for years of use.
The spool has a novel easy access plate. Instead of taking the side off of the reel, there is a side plate that swivels to reveal the spool. This can be a great time saving feature.
There are 3 models available. The 200ASV and the 200A both gave gear ratios of 6.2 to 1, and the 200APV has a gear ratio of 5.0 to 1. All of these models include a great looking low profile design that any fisherman can appreciate.
This is truly a remarkable series of Shimano excellency will all the features you would want to find in a bait caster and more.
