Traditionally the Calcutta fishing reel is known as being a baitcaster reel. Perhaps to chase barra up north on a 400 or Bass down south on a 200. However new to the Calcutta stables is the Silver coloured 800F Model. This reel is not specifically designed for tossing lures at barra nor is it a reel for bass. So, just what is the Calcutta 800F reel exactly then? I hear you ask.
Well it is a reel designed to cater to the light saltwater jigging angler making it ideal for the offshore boat fisho that wants to try their hand at snapper, kingfish, morwong and the like on light jigging lures (ideally between 40-100 grams)
Being in the Calcutta family you get an amazingly good quality reel that comes with features such as S compact body being a technology that is designed to reduce weight whilst also allowing for more leverage and better grip when you’re battling it out with a fish. It comes Shielded ARB bearings designed for better corrosion resistance, X ship greater efficiency gearing system and a Shimano compact design for easy management and less angler fatigue.
Want to try light jigging? Try it with a Shimano Calcutta 800F Reel.
