Best reel in years!,

"This Shimano Caius bait caster reel is a very good product to have when you hit the water. It has a very smooth action and an optimal weight for the average fisherman. I found range is best with 8-14 pound test line. This reel is also easy to handle due to its smaller size. Even though the gear ratio for the Shimano Caius isn't has high as some of those higher end models, this reel will be sure to get the job done and pull in the big fish"
