Shimano® Cardiff Casting Reel Review

Get precision cast control and unbelievably smooth cranking with the Cardiff. Access the centrifugal brake weights in the VBS® (Variable Brake System) without removing the spool for perfect adjustment on the go. Dartainium® Drag provides smooth performance. Four A-RB™ ball bearings plus a Super Stopper® roller bearing. 400 and 401 models feature a non-disengaging levelwind and clicker.

Muskie Reel User Review from setty5464:

I bought this reel for my wife as a muskie reel. It is a very nice reel for the money. Very smooth casting reel that retrieves larger baits with ease. Would recommend a calcutta b or te for an avid fisherman. Overall nice reel.
