The Shimano Bantam Baitcasting Reel is a popular option among anglers. As a model from Shimano, a well-known and respected brand in the fishing industry, it is known for its high-quality construction and reliable performance. This reel features a smooth, quiet retrieve, with a low profile design that makes it easy to handle. The adjustable brakes and casting control system allow for accurate and efficient casting, making it suitable for a wide range of fishing styles. Additionally, the compact size makes it a great choice for anglers who value portability and convenience. Overall, the Shimano Bantam Baitcasting Reel is a solid choice for anglers looking for a reliable and versatile reel.
The Shimano Bantam A Baitcasting Reels used state of the art technologies to handle the toughest challenges an angler might face. The upgraded reel features a CoreSolid boidy providing a solid feel, resiting unwanted flex. The Infinity Drive technology provides unsurpassed reeling force leaving the angler in command.
CoreSolid Body integrates the B-Side Plate, levelwind guard and frame into a solid one-piece construction. This delivers an unprecedented feeling of rigidity and sensitivity, and is the first design of this type in a low-profile baitcast reel.
Cross Carbon Drag
The Cross Carbon Drag material provides a wider range of drag settings compared to traditional drag materials. The Cross Carbon Drag provides the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever while providing anglers with increased durability.
The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing on the reel while fighting fish. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power, increasing efficiency through strength.
S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing and constructing a balanced and uniform thin-wall aluminum spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.
Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity, provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting, especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments when anglers need to adjust to the conditions or when they switch baits.
S A-RB Bearings
S A-RB bearings are put through the same process as Shimano’s A-RB bearings but feature shields on both sides of the bearings. These shields reduce the possibility of salt or sand inhibiting rotation of the bearing.
