CALCUTTA D SERIES Baitcast

The Calcutta D features a complete redesign from the ground up and combines the respected performance of the previous Calcutta models with some key new enhancements all of their own. Delivering serious cranking power, the Calcutta D also provide the rigidity and durability to stand up to season after season of use - whether you fish in freshwater or saltwater. Shimano's new X-Drag also provides the ultimate in smooth and reliable performance, meaning when hooked up to XOS snapper, kingfish, trout or salmon you can trust that the Calcutta D's drag will do what is asked of it time and time again.

The Shimano Calcutta D comes equipped with Shimano's X-Ship technology for better free-spooling, as well as, Shimano's 'S Compact Body' for ergonomic comfort in your hands. The new Shimano Calcutta D Series Casting Reels are leading the way for anglers that are looking for quality, function, design and longevity.

CALCUTTA D SERIES FEATURES
The metal construction showcased in some of our finest reels now appears throughout our line of Metal Series products. Metal frames not only keep moving parts in precise alignment, they also feature the use of the latest anodizing, plating and painting techniques for beautiful and durable finishes.
Anti-Rust Bearings are made of Stainless Steel that has been through the A-RB process. At least 10 times more corrosion resistant than standard Stainless Steel ball bearings. Easy Maintenance-no shield design allows for easy flushing of debris and easy lubrication. Increased Bearing Speed-no shield design and lighter viscosity lubrication reduce friction and allow the bearing to spin faster and lo...
VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid in controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent sp...
HEG consists of not only the gears, but also the frame, setplate, and handle-side sideplate. First we increased the size of the drive gear and the pinion gear to offer increased leverage and power. By using a one-piece frame that incorporates the setplate and adding a one-piece stamped sideplate, we have eliminated flex in the drivetrain that causes normal gears to bind under pressure. By eliminat...
These spools provide increased strength and durability over diecast aluminum or graphite spools.
By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with our S-ARB bearings and integrating a bigger drive gear, Shimano increased the gearing efficiency and power. This results in a fishing reel with ultra-light handle rotation, giving a perfect rotation even under heavy loads.
