Shimano Casitas

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the Shimano Casitas? I have read the reviews and it seems good. I am newer to baitcasting. Lews Tournament TS1XHMB, Shimano Casitas are what I looked at today. Really not sure what to get so many options. I fish about 90 % buzz baits and poppers in small lakes in MIchigan. Also looking for a good rod trying to stay under$300.

Don't know too much about the Casitas, but check out the St. Croix Mojo Bass or any of the Dobyns rods. Dobyns Fury is a good rod for around $110.

300 total? Or just the rod?   I'd suggest a Zodias rod.  I bought one in June and now I have three!  They are sensitive, light and quickly becoming my favorite rods.  I haven't used a Casitas but the few people I know say they are good work horse reels.

Shimano Casitas is a very good reel for the price. Casts great, a couple gear ratio options, SVS cast control and it's quite smooth. You can get them less than retail on that auction site. Handled this 3lb bass on a popper great.

That rod you see is the new Berkley Amp, 7' MH, sells for $30. Wonderful rod.

That setup is under $150.

I have a Casitas and like it really well so far. I'm using it for jerkbaits and topwater.
