When you hear the words Shimano Calcutta immediately you think of a classy looking reel that performs faultlessly cast after cast fish after fish! The Shimano Calcutta has long been regarded as the go to baitcasting reel for those that target and catch big barramundi up north and cod down south.
With the introduction of the new Shimano Calcutta D series baitcasting reels, the engineers at Shimano have done the unthinkable they’ve made a Great Reel Even Better!
In order to make these fishing rods suitable for travelling, Daiwa has designed them to be taken apart in three sections. The only exception is the Shorehunter, which dismantles into five sections to accommodate its gigantic length of 257cm. Daiwa used its special High Volume Fibre (HVF) graphite to build the rods, adding actions similar to the Daiwa Steez series.
Featuring a heap of upgrades! Like the new Xship and HEG gearing in conjunction with the new X drag system and Dartanium drag washers . The new Shimano Calcutta D series reels are set to outlast the toughest of competitors.
Shimano Calcutta 400D – The largest reel in the Calcutta D series designed as a large trolling or casting reel that can handle small to midsized tuna, mackerel, cobia, black jewfish. The large line capacity and a higher drag pressure will subdue almost any fish.
