The Shimano Calcutta Baitcasting Reel represents Shimano quality and simplicity. It is constructed of a one piece Cold Forged Aluminum Frame with aluminum sideplates and spool. The one piece frame makes for a strong and durable reel. The fishing reel has the ergonomic Septon Grips that provides you all the comfort you need for all day cranking.
There is a great amount of cast control provided by the Variable Brake System and the Super Stopper prevents backplay and wind knots. The Shimano Dartainium Drag system provides a number of settings for a smooth drag performance. The Calcutta includes the A-RB (Anti-Rust Bearings) that are 10 times stronger for corrosion resistance than traditional stainless steel, making for a reel that you can depend on.
