This is a great cheap reel for someone who wants to do alot of bass fishing and doesn't want to spend the money on the top of the line.

I love my Shimano Caenan. I matched it on a 7' Berkley Lightning rod. It is my first baitcaster, but I can tell that it is a good one. I've caught a lot of little bass on it, the biggest only being a little over 1.5 pounds, so I haven't battled a big fish on it yet. I'll be fishing a lot for Tiger musky this summer, so I'll be able to test out the drag. But from what i can tell, its pretty smooth. The reel casts well, also. I like that the VBS cover stays attached to the reel and just swings there when you open it to adjust the brake. The only reason I marked 4 stars instead of 5 is because the finish has started to chip a little. Probably just because I didn't put a cover on it while it bounced around in the back of the truck. Thanks Shimano!

The best fishing for fish average. They are easy to handle and good pickup with optimum speed. Firm in its handling, and easy maintenance

I purchased this reel because I liked the specifications, namely the combination of light weight, good retrieve speed, and the kind of line capacity which enables it to be a very versatile and efficient crankbait reel. I've put enough bass miles on it for it to prove its reliability and solid performance typical of Shimano products.
I have encountered nothing negative at all using this reel.

I have had a Shimano bantam 100 with wood handles for 25+ yrs my favorite reel.
Just for the Caenan and fished twice so far so good, feels same as bantam 100 and caught two bass with it and no problems so far and dont expect any, i have lots of garcia reels, and two shimano bantam 100s, so far very happy with the caenan, all i can report now

Bought this reel new and never used it. The components used were inferior to what other reels of this or higher cost would provide. My container did not have any lubricant; there were many non metal components in critical areas of the reel (i.e. line retrieve screw drive gear); a thumb bar with only one side attached to the reel and no ability to fine tune the break when casting.

Excellent quality. Casts incredibly smooth. Simple set-up. Highly recommended for novice to armature. This reel will stand the test of time.
Much higher quality and performance than similar casters in the price range.
