Shimano baitcasting reels are among the finest in the world. In fact, I would be as bold to say that they make the absolute finest on earth. What makes these precise fishing tools so great? Let's explore some of these factors right now!

Shimano's revolutionary technology and ability to utilize it in way previously unheard of is what makes their reels legendary. With so many to choose from, how does one know how to buy the perfect reel for his unique situations? Let's look deeper.

- Shimano's low profile baitcasters are arguably the smoothest reels ever made. Their super palmabilty does not compromise the durability in any way. Their small profile makes them ideal for long durations of use when large line capacity is not an issue. There is a reel in this category for every budget.

- The round baitcasters in Shimano's line-up are some of the toughest reels on the market. I can't think of one that isn't built like a tank. Whether your big game fishing or fishing with heavy tackle for smaller fish there is the perfect size reel for you. If you need a little more line capacity or want the assurance of an extra tough reel, check one of these out.

I own Shimano reels almost exclusively for some very specific reasons. They have never let me down, they are smooth and far-casting, and they have one of the best values on the market. However, some anglers think that Shimano's are too heavy for their liking. This can be an issue if you are concerned with extra ounces, but I have not found it to be a problem.

If you're considering a new baitcaster, check out Shimano's line-up. I don't think you will be disappointed.
