Shimano Calcutta Round Baitcasting Reels 4.3 5 6 6
Paid for new reel. Shipped me a used reel. The reel looked like it had been previously spooled. Did not come with a box, manual, tools, or wrench. Looked like my new reel was a demo reel. Returned the reel. not sure how it performed. August 26, 2014
Awesome reel smooth, super quiet, light Disadvantages: absolutely none "Bought the 100b , and couldn't be more pleased. I own several Shimano reels, love them all, but this reel is in a class all by itself. I have over my many years owned many round reels, but never one with such a small, easy to handle profile. This reel is an absolute pleasure to fish with. I purchased another a few days later. Hootie December 16, 2013
The Proverbial Brick Public Amenity Shed I bought my Calcutta in the mid-80's to replace the Bantam on my Shimano combo from the late 70's. The Bantam looked good but was not balanced with the Kevlar/graphite heavy action Colfor rod. I needed something hardcore for fishing from a parked navy destroyer. I caught bait fish with my Calcutta and I caught shark and barracuda and grouper and aquarium quality fish and SCUBA diver. Mine was silver, not gold but worth that much to me. Best $80 I spent on a baitcasting reel! Look what you guys will have to pay for yours now! :-P July 25, 2013
Love This Reel I've owned several of these Calcuttas and love em...So smooth and very little maintainence. Just chunk and reel. Good price and a great value. Matt was very attentive and professional and didn't try to sway me to buy anything other than what I was looking for. June 12, 2013
Can't beat this reel I've had two of these reels for about 12 years, and they both have been used extensively in all weather conditions. I will never part with these reels. They have proven themselves worthy time and time again. The reels are solid and well constructed, bearings are very smooth, casting is superior, adjustments are very user friendly. Plus, they're really nice looking, for what that's worth. May 30, 2013
All You Need When you look for a reel to handle both fresh water and salt water fishing, this is all you need to look for. It is real light weight and all mechanical internals. Great for all applications and will last a lifetime. August 14, 2012
