The Shimano Calcutta D reels are the perfect saltwater reels for many species. Comfortable to use with a round design, the ideal reel choice for most anglers. Each reel has S-compact body to allow for more comfortable use and allows the reel to be smaller. This type of body allows for more rigidity within the reel as well, as a result the Calcutta D reels are smaller. These reels have features that make them advanced, comfortable to use and an excellent addition for any angler's rod. Perfect for reeling in the biggest species, most anglers will find this reel great for heavy duty applications. With a re-studied gear ratio the Shimano Calcutta D reels are more effective for the latest in angling technology such as new lures and applications.
- X-Ship Feature which allows for an increase in power, rigidity, and freespool in the baitcasting category, exclusive to baitcast
- X-Drag Feature which is biggest innovation in round category in 20 years. This feature also helps with rigidity so the heavier your catch the more leverage will be experienced.
- Palming side is 15% smaller

This reel, is probably one of the best Shimano Reels I have owned in its class. It is the power of a 400 series reel, with the size of a 200. With the X Drag and X Ship integrations, you are able to use this reel on larger fish, you may have not dared to use on the larger species before. Because of these advancements, it has tremendous power and torque. The drag is very smooth and flawless, and the retrieve is superb. I have been using this reel, paired with the Tescata Rods, to bottom fish using the Lucanus Jigs. I have been bottom fishing for years, and I wanted a way to add a little something to the ordinary drop, jig, reel! The looks I get when I step onto an offshore Cod Boat with a small baitcaster and a noodle of a rod are all too funny. But when they see me reeling up the same fish, with my rod bent towards the water, and the fight they give me, they realize I am having the time of my life! I own 2 Calcutta D's on 2 different Tescata Rods. One for shallow water and one for 50 and beyond fathoms. Like Larry Dahlberg said, if he had one reel he could own, it would be the Calcutta D. After using this little gem, you to will be convinced of that statement.
ProsSmall size, increased torque and drag weight, ability to hold heavier braid, smooth drag and retrieve, ability to use on the larger species.

I have fished the 200d for about a year. It has been in the shop twice, once for replacement of the plastic gear on the level wind and more recently for inconsistent casting. The second time a defective pad on the drag was replaced There are things about the reel I love. The size for one, and its strength and rigidity for another. No complaints when I am reeling in a fish. However, casting I do not seem to be able to get anywhere near the distance I get with my 100B. Also while this might be due in part to operator error, sometimes when I cast, the reel seems to freeze. Because there is no easy access to the centrifugal brakes I don't know how they are set. Maybe there are too many engaged for my casting style. I rarely if ever get backlash on this reel, but it would be nice if I could get to the brakes without taking the reel apart. All of this aside, this reel and the 100 are my go to reels for fishing inshore. I fish at least twice a week on average and the reel is comfortable to use all day.
