Shimano Calais 200APV or 200ASV
Beefed-up versions of the Calais 200A, designed for extra knockdown power when you need it most. The 200APV is the Power Version, equipped with a lower gear ratio and oversized paddle grips—great for tossing big baits all day and dogging down on lunker fish. The 200ASV is the saltwater version, designed to tame the cruisers of the flats with a deeper, larger-capacity non-drilled spool and the largest, most comfortable paddle grips available.
