Our Crius baitcasting reel, alongside our Hyperion, was one of the first reels we ever offered. Now it's our most recent update, benefiting from much of the technology seen in our flagship Wraith reel! It boasts the same powerful drag and oversized carbon cranking handle, with ergonomic EVA foam grips, as well as a lightweight, low-profile frame. This reel is already winning tournaments

    Problem with side plate

    Published by Doubrava Jeff on 8th Jan 2020

    I haven’t try them yet but I love the feeling I hold the reel. The only problem is that I have hard time to open the side plate and it should be easy to open it. I hope you can correct the problem.

    Published by Cory Lamb on 8th Jan 2020

    Probably one of the best reels I've ever used for the money and it casts a mile.

    Quit hesitating & just get one!!!!

    Published by Damon Clayton on 8th Jan 2020

    I waited almost 2 years before I decided to try the Crius baitcaster and let me tell you I should’ve ordered it a while ago!
    Very lite weight built tough and casts 65# Power Pro braided line like it’s nothing!!!
    Be sure to take your time and get it adjusted before you go to the lake and I can almost guarantee you won’t backlash hardly ever. Just a flick of the wrist and you can cast 80 yrds like it’s nothing. Some of you may have preconceived notions that SixGill reels are not as good as XYZ brand but let me just put that to rest. I fish quite a few tournaments and before SixGill I was using 3 other name brand reels and I can tell you those reels don’t see much action anymore. The quality and durability of the Crius will have you hooked after the first cast!
    Still not sure??
    Can’t go wrong with the BOGO SALE!!!
    Give the Crius a’ll be happy you did!!!

    Crius Baitcaster

    Published by Earle Simpson on 8th Jan 2020

    Unfortunately I cannot give it a review yet..... At least a full review..... I have played with it a little bit out of the box I even put one on all of my Cypress rods spoiled it up with some 17 lb polymer line and was throwing a practice plug around the backyard a little bit..... I will say this I am really looking forward to getting these out on the water come springtime and see how they perform but I'm playing in the backyard is awesome real didn't take me long to get it dialed in..... I will definitely be ordering at least two more reels and rods from you guys just not sure which ones yet..... I will submit another review once I've got these rods and reels out on the water and hook a few Bronze Bombers and a few big old Bucketmouths

    My new favorite

    Published by Jamey Cannedy on 29th Jun 2019

    Once I figured out how to use a bait caster again without bird nesting, it’s now one of my favorite reels. Nice reel for the money.

    Crius Review

    A very smooth and lite reel for the money. A little hard to dial in, but once it is adjusted for your type of fishing, it is out standing, bait caster.
