Shimano Calcutta B Featured Highlights

Cold Forged Aluminum Frame, Aluminum Sideplates and Aluminum Spool provide the strongest, tightest tolerances for excellent smoothness and legendary durability.

A-RB« (Anti-Rust Bearings) These specially treated stainless steel ball bearings are at least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard stainless steel ball bearings.

Variable Brake System (VBS«) uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast for increased distance and adjustability.

Super Stopper« is a one-way roller bearing that eliminates backplay for solid hooksets.

Dartainium« Drag material provides a wide range of drag settings and the smoothest Shimano drag performance ever.

Quick Take Down by unscrewing the 3 thumb screws the sideplate can be easily removed for maintenance or to adjust the VBS brake weights (2 screws on CT50).

SeptonÖ this handle grip material is soft to the touch and does not get slippery when wet.

Metal Series Metal frames keep moving parts in precise alignment for increased efficiency and durability.
Easy Access Sideplate by using a single thumb screw, the angler can open the sideplate and adjust the VBS without having to remove the spool from the reel (100 and 200 sizes only).

Assist Stopper is a back-up anti-reverse system that reduces the stress placed on the one-way roller bearing to increase durability (Not available on 50 & 100 sizes).

Lo-MassÖ Drilled Spool System reducing the weight of the spool by drilling lowers start-up inertia for more manageable casts (CT200GTB only).

Drilled Crossbar reduces the overall weight of the reel (CT200GTB Only).

Clicker increases the tension on freespool and activates a clicking alarm when a fish bites (400 & 700 sizes only).

3-Position Power Grip this Septon coated handle grip allows for 3 different hand positions for various fishing techniques (CT400BSV, CT700B & CT700BSV only).

SV Power Paddles The largest of the paddle grips provides extra fish fighting power when battling feisty inshore species (CT400B only).

Non-Disengaging Levelwind System allows the levelwind to track back and forth during the cast which reduces drastic line angles that cause unwanted friction and backlashes on wide-spool reels (CT400B & CT700B only).
Shimano Calcutta B Baitcasting Reels Shimano has redefined the entire Calcutta series; many of the proven innovations that Shimano has developed over the years have been incorporated into the new Calcutta B baitcasting reels.

Good reel, but poor design
December 22, 2013
It is a nice looking reel but the spool is considerably smaller than the rest of the reel and not only makes it look weird but also makes it hard to palm the reel and keep your thumb on the spool. The reel is very wide which adds to the lack of comfort. I find it to be not as powerful as i expected. I have used mine for livelining as well as jigging for bass and blues and it seems like it just doesn't put out the power that other reels i use for the same function do. I think for the price, you can go with something smaller and better designed
Cons:
Wide body, small spool, a little heavy

Beautifully made reel, but lacking in ability.
June 28, 2013
This reel is really well made, pleasing to handle and look at. That being said, I feel it is not suitable for many fishing styles. It is quite heavy to hold and use all day. I ordered it sight unseen, and found it physically larger than I expected. I spooled it with 100lb PowerPro braid, and couldn't fill the spool with the yardage expected from the spec sheet. For the overall size it just doesn't hold very much line. The drag is smooth but at max feels just less than I hoped (sorry I have no scale to measure actual pressure) The reel is wide and imparts a lot of wobble on the retrieve. Casting, even with a lot of weight was a disappointment. I have since cleaned and oiled the spool bearings with a synthetic reel oil and have improved casting distance quite a bit. The manual spool engage/disengage is a chore. I wish the reel was a bit more narrow and had a thumb bar release. I am still searching for the best way to use this reel in my fishing arsenal.
Pros:
Well made and smooth operation.
Cons:
Overall design does not lend itself well to most fishing styles I have tried to use it for.
