      Comments about Shimano Calcutta CT400B Baitcasting Reel:

      I love these Calcutta's REEL's - I use them in Fresh & SALT Water............The SALT WATER will EAT MOST Reel's within 1-2 year's easily........These Calcutta's if maintained - just General taking care of your REEL - will last till your ready to give it to your next of Kin .... AND THE DRAG SYSTEM is 2nd to NO ONE in the Industry on a "BAITCASTER REEL" ...sometimes in the SALT water you can get hooked up with an unexpected creature - (6' Shark, 50 lb Sting Ray, etc, etc) .. and that's when you really get to see this Shimano DRAG SYSTEM work - "SO SMOOTH" - ......"SILKY is the word that comes to mind"..........other GREAT Reels that I still use .........ain't "SILKY"........there Great REEL's .........But were not meant to use the DRAG System for an extended time period ......maybe a 10 feet run or so ..........these Calcutta's .........you can let that FISH or Creature Run .........come back to the BOAT and Take off again and you don't have to worry about that Drag System over heating and jamming (STOP) or getting LOCKED DOWN = and you here "POW" - your Line just snapped !!! That just ..........you can fill in the words.......I'll shut-up now !!! But you can't beat this Calcutta REEL in a Baitcaster format .............especially if you need to catch that "PRIZE" Fish and you need a Drag system to do the JOB !!!!
