SHAKESPEARE® E-Z CAST® LOW PROFILE BAITCAST REEL
Introducing The Only Reel With Anti-Backlash System (ABS)
Everyone worries about backlashes when fishing with baitcast reels. And everyone, novice to pro angler, gets the occasional bird's nest.
Shakespeare® has eliminated the anxiety and reluctance to use baitcast reels with the new E-Z Cast® low profile reel. The E-Z Cast incorporates a revolutionary Anti-Backlash System (ABS) that prevents backlash when casting and allows the angler to send baits flying without reel mishap.
The E-Z Cast low profile reel is designed to automatically throttle down the revolutions of the spool when line speed and spool speed are not lining up. This new ABS is a great teaching tool that allows anglers of all skill levels to learn to cast a baitcast without worrying about a bird's nest. When the angler gains confidence the ABS feature can be turned off to function like a normal low profile reel.
The Shakespeare E-Z Cast, featuring this new and exciting ABS technology, is offered as a reel and in a combo. Shakespeare is also launching a pink version of the E-Z Cast low profile reel under the umbrella of female specific products that help support the American Breast Cancer Foundation®.
Both men's and women's models are filled with 100 yards of quality Stren® 10-pound test monofilament line. The combos feature a two-piece 6'0" medium action rod with hook keeper, stainless steel guides, and EVA grips.
The Shakespeare E-Z Cast has an MSRP of $39.99. The reel and rod combo is priced at
