Description

Shimano Calcutta B Baitcast Reel

The Shimano Calcutta has been a longstanding member of Shimano’s baitcaster reels since Shimano hit the Australian market back in the late 80’s. The range has seen some modifications in recent times and now features a strong cold forged body and frame. This traditional series also features a multi disc carbon drag which dissipates heat in the drag evenly and exerts very high drag pressures.

Each model also has an anodised body and spool so they are more resistant to the daily stresses of saltwater use. They also have a larger style handle with rubberised grips, Super Stopper, Assist Stopper, and run smoothly on three of Shimano’s patented A-RB Bearings plus one roller bearing.

Another handy feature on the 200B is the quick release mechanism and drop-down side plate that gives access to the adjustable VBS casting brake blocks for when an angler’s casting improves or if casting into the wind.

These reels have been catching fish in Australia for over 20 years and are set to do so for another 20 more.
