Anglers everywhere are in love with the Shimano Calcutta CT700B Round Baitcasting Reel – although it’s classified as a baitcaster thanks to the Variable Brake System which controls freespool during casting, it’s more of a conventional levelwind reel due its size and power. Designed originally for musky fishing, the CT700B has tons of line capacity; you’re looking at well over 500 yards of 50# braid. For those fishing exclusively for big boy muskies, the CT700B will hold 330 yards of 80# braid, the preferred test for musky experts everywhere. The High Efficiency Gearing is dialed down a bit, coming in at a powerful 4.7:1, but that’s ideal for cranking down on the larger targets this reel was designed for. The CT700B comes equipped with a dexterous power handle, and the non-disengaging levelwind system has a titanium insert to keep rust from damaging your line. Thanks to Shimano’s patented Super Stopper anti-reverse system, the CT700B has infinite smooth anti-reverse which is critical when setting the hook in the hard mouth of a musky or striper.
