        Comments about Shimano Cardiff 400A Casting Reel:

        Great product for the price! I borrowed my friends reel last fall musky trip and was very impressed with the overall feel and ease of use. The addition of the power crank handle is a must if your going to be chucking large baits for 10 hour days.

            Comments about Shimano Cardiff 400A Casting Reel:

            Mounted this reel on a heavy action musky rod, with 65lb. test braided line. Line guide moves with line on the cast, helping to keep line from fouling on the reel. Used it almost exclusively last year. Thousands of casts. Encountered no problems so far. Will cast a heavy plug 100' with 65lb. test line without backlashes as long as cast control is set properly.
