Aldebaran Baitcasting Reel
Precision fit and feature packed with some of the most advanced technology and componentry to deliver exceptional performance, the Shimano Aldebaren BFS Baitcasting Reels are ready to meet the needs of even the most demanding BFS anglers. Its improved MGL Spool III combined with all new FTB Breaking system allows the angler the versatility to cast ultra-light two-gram lures with confidence, with further breaking capability to adjust for heavier BFS lures on the fly. Its FTB Breaking system moves all its components out of the spool and into the side plate of the reel, which in turn reduced the physical spool weight and drops startup inertia needed for spool movement. Its magnetic force that the braking system applies even at its lowest setting was also dramatically reduced, as it positionally was moved further away from the spool and allows for a more meaningful and unrestricted free spool.
A Hagane Metal body sits as the frame for this compact, ergonomic, and comfortable reel, delivering strength and durability for the long haul. Frame flex and distortion is mitigated even when fighting larger fish, providing a great structure to house its internal components for smooth handle turns and pleasurable in hand feel. Micro Module Gearing combined with X-Ship delivers on this exceptional retrieve as they both work in unison to enhance drive/pinion gear efficiency and durability. Carbon matrix drag washers provide a buttery smooth drag for those intense battles on light line, while Exciting Drag Noise delivers an audible drag noise every time that fish makes a run. For the angler looking to score a premium BFS option for their next adventure on the trout stream, bass fishing at the local pond, or even light saltwater use, the Aldebaran BFS is a serious performer with excellent ergonomics, top of the line reel technology and materials to meet the needs of enthusiast level anglers and beyond.
