SHIMANO CAIUS B REEL
The Caius is a compact, versatile, and durable baitcasting reel, designed with lightweight lure casting in mind. The Super Free Spool improves casting performance and the improved 6-pin VBS (Variable Braking System) keeps backlash to a minimum with all weights and sizes of lures.
VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. When turned on, the individual brake weights 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 with which the brake weights contact the raceway lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning.
SUPER FREE SPOOL
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 actually can drag on the spool shaft creating friction that can limit the length of a cast. With SF the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing so that when the clutch is disengaged in preparation for a cast, the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in perfect alignment. The result is zero friction upon the spool shaft.
