The Shimano Aldebaran BFS is the ultimate finesse baitcasting reel in the world! Incorporated into its design is the ultra-light MGL spool III. The low moment of inertia of the spool allows for more precise casts, even with a low loading on the rod.
The Finesse Tune Brake (FTB) system of the Aldebaran uses magnets as its operating principle. This minimizes backlash allowing for casting distances to be stretched to their maximum. This brake unit is not installed on the spool itself, allowing for a low moment of inertia. The power of the brake unit is adjusted using the dial which controls the surface area of overlap between the magnets and the spool. At its lowest setting, the latest FTB system integrates a small ring. This allows for any magnetic force to be absorbed, giving almost zero resistance to the spool for a long cast.
On top of the reel’s light weight of 130g, the lineup comes with the MicroModule Gear II for smoothness and exciting drag sound to light up the fire in all anglers!
