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).

Septon™ 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-Mass™ 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.

Best reel I have ever owned
February 28, 2016
I have had a 200B for 15 years. This thing is a workhorse and is the smoothest, most reliable reel I have ever owned. It will catch anything from bass, to redfish, to bonita. Great all around light tackle reel.

Would the Calcutta 400B be a good match for a St.Croix Tide Master TIC70HF Casting rod?
That would certainly be a very nice combo but I like knowing the actual application the rod and reel will be used for before saying it will work. Feel free to call or email in and speak with a member of the customer service team to confirm that this rod and reel will work for your application. From a balance and general feel standpoint that rod and 30 lb PowerPro will marry well with a Calcutta 400. -Paul

Can the Calcutta 400B be considered for a 30lb saltwater rig? What's a good 30lb rod to go with this reel?
You can use 30# braid on the Calcutta 400, but it is not a 30# class reel. It is a light saltwater reel. It would be great for Flounder, small to medium size Stripers, Bluefish, and Tog. The Lamiglas Tri Flex Inshore, Gloomis Pro-Blue, or St. Croix rods all would be great with that reel.

Would a Shimano Trevala S Jigging Conventional Rod be compatable with this type of reel ?
We would recommend to match the rod to the strength of line and lure weight that you are using. http://www.tackledirect.com/shimano-trevala-s-jigging-conventional-rods.html
