Product Features

Body/Frame

Shimano Calcutta D reels sports a relatively shorter height compared to the B design. It is a robust reel that has been covered in E.I surface treated body. This treatment ensures that even the smallest of crevices and micro openings on the body and frame are filled up to avoid the harmful salt deposits that haunt other reel types. It also offers a narrower design and tighter grip.

The Drag System

Shimano Calcutta D reels sport the new and innovative drag system that shakes tradition and allows anglers to think outside the traditional mind frames. The X drag system is, ideally, a system that is designed with a knob control that has accurate and reliable dragging steadfastness and offers a non-wobbling angling experience. It is easy to operate.

The knobs and control handles have been strategically placed to allow for easy access. The reel has a strong retrieval mechanism that allows for fast and accurate action. One of the features that will stand out clearly as soon as you get your hands on this reel is that it is a robust and non-wobbling angling tool.

Anglers can celebrate this reel because it offers remarkably distant angling capacity. It is even more pleasant because the distant casting capability does not compromise its capacity to deliver the bait with precision.

Spool

The spool is made of durable stainless steel material. It is driven by the advantageous gear ratio spanning across the D models. The free spooling technology can be accessed by pulling the single piece aluminum. I was impressed to learn that you do not have to disengage while in free spooling mode.

Also, check out the VBS system that provides six adjustable levels. The spool itself is covered and safeguarded. Shimano Calcutta D reel is non-corrosive angling power horse that guarantees long lasting service in a wide range of fishing environments. The position of the spool and the protective design is an assurance of durability and reliability.

Conclusion:

Experienced anglers know that with such a reel with a strong and sturdy drag system, the sky is the limit.

The reel is fitted with strong casting controls that allow for casting over significantly long distances from where the angler stands. The all-weather body and frame are great improvements too.

You do not have to swap your reel to change your fishing “grounds.” It simply lasts and lasts even longer than the competition.
