The Shimano Caius is one of the OG reels from Shimano. This affordable reel remains a favorite for many Shimano purists, even though it may not be as smooth as other more expensive options.
Many love using the Caius for a technique-specific setup. It's better having more rods on the boat than having to change up your rods - and the Caius is the perfect option for making sure you can cover any technique out on the water. It's reliable, sturdy, and impressively smooth.
We both own this reel ourselves and we can confirm that we can always rely on the Caius!
