Shimano Aldebaran BFS Casting Reels
Born for finesse game applications, the Aldebaran BFS combines a lightweight Magnesium frame and specialized braking system to tackle any technique within the Bait Finesse System (BFS) realm. The Aldebaran BFS incorporates Shimano's Finesse Tune Brake (FTB) system to reduce the spool's weight by moving the braking unit from the spool to the palming side-plate. The result: the spool takes minimal force to turn and allows anglers to effectively cast lightweight tackle. Unlike traditional magnetic brake systems that maintain the same drag on the spool throughout the cast, Shimano's FTB capitalizes on the cast's centrifugal force and the magnetic brakes automatically adjust to slow down the spool only when braking is needed. Fully adjustable, anglers can fine-tune the FTB with the external dial or by adding or removing individual magnets as needed. The Aldebaran BFS further enhances casting performance by leveraging a MagnumLite (MGL) Spool III to reduce start-up inertia for unparalleled control and accuracy. MicroModule Gear technology — a state-of-the-art and ultra-refined gear tooth design — delivers seamless engagement and power transmission for uncompromised strength, noise reduction and improved smoothness. The pinnacle of BFS technology, the all-new Aldebaran BFS is the perfect combination of lightweight and high-performance for finesse presentations.
