Shimano QuickFire II ???

Recommended Posts

The new Shimano Citica and Curado have something called the QuickFire II.  It has something to do with quicker casting or being able to free your spool to let your line out.  Im not completely sure and thats why im asking.  Is it a trigger or and extra part on the reel and what does it do?

Thanks

Quick Fire II® enables quick, easy casting. The clutch bar disengages the spool, allowing the line to free-spool, slowed only by the brake setting. The spool re-engages quickly as the handle is turned.
Their talking about the thumbar..... 8-)

The Quickfire is like reel mechanic said the thumbar.

It is a piece that allows you to open the bail with a single finger.

I personally like them and own a few, Although some guys will beg to differ on the sense and need for them, they are quite user friendly.

Since when does a bait caster have a bail on it ?

I have some old Shimano spinning reels with QuickfireII on them. I think there's a little confusion going on here.

Im very confused  ;D

Is it just the button you push to cast on the reel and they just gave it a fancy name? or is it something different?
