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.

The best fluking reel made!
This is the best all around reel, and the best fluking reel. Plus, cleaning is only two knobs away, and you are in and the reel doesn't explode in your face. I love the drag, and the ease of casting, I cast from the boat, and get a good 35 yards.
I have also, caught many stripers this spring with no problem. I use Nanofill 10lb for fluke and PowerPro Super 8 Slick 15lb for stripers

Thanks TD

Can you use the power handle?
1 Answers
This size comes with the paddle handle. I am not sure if an aftermarket power handle exists as we have never sold one and Shimano doesn't offer one..
