    My new favorite

    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

    Published by Lloyd Self on 29th Jun 2019

    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.

    I've fished fresh and saltwater with this bad boy and its amazing. Took me all of one fishing trip to figure out how to dial it in and I've landed everything from crappie and bass to speckled trout and redfish on it. Got it paired with an Akylos and I can't get enough!

    Crius is a beast!

    Published by Marty Lesperance on 26th Sep 2018

    SIXGILL's Crius is a beast! I purchased the 7.1:1 right hand. The thumb bar location is closer to the spool than most reels giving more control over the line when casting and pitching. The larger reel handle is super comfortable and easy to grip. This thing can cast a mile and pitch a lot of line to get back into deep cover. Purchased another after I fished it on one outing. Great reel, SIXGILL!

    Awesome Reel

    Published by Darrell Speakes on 8th Aug 2018

    This is the best reel I have ever owned. It leaves my Lews reels in the dust. It is extremely smooth and casts a very long way. I have it paired with a Saga reel and will be purchasing more of the Crius reels to replace all other baitcasters I own. I also like that it is available in different gear ratios so I can use it for all types of lures.
