Hi,

Im planning to get a new BC (shimano) and eyeing the Shimano Cruxis 201 reel.

Did some research on the net and the posts I saw where mainly for Saltwater.  Need help from guys who use this reel for inputs.

My questions are:

Can the cruxis cast light lures (1/2 oz. Spinners, Frogs)?.  Planning to use it for freshwater back home for Bass, Barramundi and Snakeheads.

Can it handle Braid (The levelwind)?

Will the Plastic drag star and tension knob be an issue in the future?

Are there upgrade parts for the plastic parts ?

With 4 bearings does the reel still feel smooth (with or without load) ?

Thanx guys.

Are people actually sport fishing for snakeheads? i thought they were a danger and an invasive species. are you supposed to kill them when you catch them? i honestly dont know, and would like to.

Yup we fish for Snakeheads (Haruan or tomans).  I from the Philippines and snakehead is our local freshwater gamefish (not the ones that are causing havoc on the states by the way thats another species of snakeheads) we also have some Largemouth bass is some lakes along with Peacock bass and saltwater game of course like barramundi.  We fish Haruans using normal bass gear and the most effective lures are spinnerbait, crankbait and frogs.
