Shimano CTE201DC Calcutta TE DC Baitcasting Reel

Winner of the 2003 ICAST Best of Show Award, Shimano's new Calcutta TE DC baitcasting reel features the greatest innovation in reel technology in years: a computer chip pre-programmed with eight spool-braking patterns to match lure weight and spool speed. The self-energizing digital braking system allows you to cast farther than you ever have before and put an end to backlash.

How It Works:

During the initial moments of a cast, the energy generated by the rotation of the spool is stored in the digital control circuit board and used to power the digital braking system for subsequent casts. The waterproof digital control system of a Calcutta TE DC is a self-energizing system, recharging with each cast.

By simply turning the external 8 position dial to the selected setting, the Calcutta TE DC allows access up to 8 different pre-programmed braking patterns based on lure type, wind conditions, or casting method. The digital control braking system allows the electromagnetic brake to be applied every 1/1000 of a second. As the brakes are activated, the digital brake system emits electronic beep sounds reinforcing the sense of digital control.

With this technology, each of the 8 pre-programmed braking patterns provide awesome control of the feeding of the line by applying the ideal amount of braking force at critical intervals. As a result, it is possible to achieve long, accurate casts with consistent backlash control.
