Calcutta “D” Series

FOR over 20 years, the Shimano Calcutta baitcaster has been synonymous with high performance lure casting. Shimano says its latest series takes that to another level.

There are three sizes to choose from in the new “D” series — a 200, a 300 and a 400.

The 200 holds 190m of four kilo nylon and 135m of 40 pound Power Pro braid, the 300 takes 210m of six kilo nylon and 195m of 40 pound Power Pro, and the 400, 300m of six kilo nylon and 275m of 50 pound Power Pro.

A lot of people prefer the traditional round shape baitcaster over low-slung designs, feeling it gives them better control when working a lure, and the S Concept body design means these reels actually feel a size smaller in the hand. This is assisted by the X Drag feature that sees the drag knob outside the handle, meaning the handle is now closer to the body for increased cranking leverage, rigidity and torque.
