The fishing rod supplied in this bait casting outfit is a two-piece fishing rod which means you can transport this fishing rod with ease with its broken down length of around 91 cm a piece.
Variable break system within the Calcutta fishing reel utilises centrifugal force as opposed to magnets which assist in controlling the cast. When the VBS system is turned on the individual brake weights are forced outward at the initial stage of the cast when backlash or tangles often occur, this causing friction assisting reduction of speed. Once the speed of the spool reduces the pressure becomes less allowing the spool to continue spinning. The outcome of the VBS system means that you have a much more consistent speed that is much more easier to manage as well is achieving maximum casting distance there are multiple settings with this VBS system from calm right up to the days where maximum cast control is needed due to windy conditions.
Shimano super stopper concept is a stainless steel roller bearing which assists in eliminating back play in the reel, giving you the angler the ability of instant hook set capability.
