Product Summary 

The Shimano Caius Reel and Vortex Rod Baitcasting Combo can take on a variety of fishing applications and deliver reliable performance every time. The Caius reel features Super Stopper anti-reverse, which uses a one-way bearing to eliminate backplay, providing the angler with instant hook-setting power. Recessed reel foot allows the reel to sit low on the rod, making it easier to palm for better handling, casting, and pitching. Easy Mag II magnetic braking system for quick adjustments in the field. Approved for use in saltwater and rated for use with Mono, Fluorocarbon and PowerPro lines.

The multi-purpose Gander Mountain Vortex rod is sure to deliver optimum performance for tournament and recreational fishing alike. The durable, high-quality graphite blank is sensitive with fast actions for great hook sets. Stainless Steel guides are lightweight and strong with no insert to pop out. The cork, split-grip handles provide a comfortable hold that's sure to keep you fishing all day.
