Casitas Baitcast Reel

The space age-looking Casitas baitcaster is another new face on the 2016 Shimano baitcaster lineup. There are two reels in the range and it’s all about gear ratios. The Casitas 150 has a gear ratio of 6.3:1 and recovers 67 centimetres of line with each turn of the handle, while the 150HG (High Gear), steps up the pace with a gear ratio of 7.2:1 and briskly puts 76 centimetres of line back aboard. The Cross Carbon Drag provides a wider range of settings, from light to full stop, while remaining super smooth throughout the range. Max’ drag is six kilos, which is heaps for what this reel was designed to do — throw lures at barra, bass, cod, yellowbelly, flathead, tailor, salmon and the like. 150 metres of 15 kilo Power Pro should be more than enough capacity to deal with them. If not, you’ve got a nice fish on there! There are four SA-RB bearings and one roller bearing, the Lo Mass Spool keeps weight down and the spool turning smoothly, and a Click Centrifugal Cast Control means the Casitas remain sure-footed and dependable when throwing lures of different weights and varying degrees of aerodynamics.
