Shimano Caius Features
Aluminum Lo-Mass Drilled Spool System The Lo-Mass Drilled Spool System is designed for anglers who require longer casts and can sacrifice line capacity to do so. The Lo-Mass spool features a large arbor that is cross-drilled to reduce its weight. By moving the arbor of the spool outward, the mass of the spool is closer to the rim of the spool. Like a lightweight bicycle wheel, where most of the mass lies in the tire, the majority of a Lo-Mass spool lies in the arbor and the line it is spooled with.
Super Stopper Super Stopper uses a one-way, stainless steel roller bearing that eliminates backplay. This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power.

3 Shielded Stainless Steel Ball Bearings
Easy Mag II Brake System This magnetic cast control system allows for a true freespool setting. With Easy Mag II, the spool controlling magnets rotate to face each other, cancelling themselves so they apply zero force on the spool. The angler can continue to turn down the magnetic control to provide better freespool and more casting distance.
Quickfire II Clutch Bar A system used for easy and fast one-handed casting. The line and trigger self-center, and are within easy grasp of the angler's index finger. By pulling the line and the trigger with one hand, the bail opens and is ready to be cast.
