This is the culmination of decades of forward thinking in terms of reel manufacturing: The Shimano Calcutta Conquest CTCNQ200 Round Baitcast Reel. The CTCNQ200 has the precision craftsmanship of a Rolls Royce, and the sheer engineering beauty of a Rolex. Shimano’s team of reel engineers has stuffed 10+2 SA-RB ball bearings inside the “S” Compact Body design of the CTCNQ200 – This means the smoothness and touch of this reel are among the best in the industry. The cold-forged aluminum frame of the CTCNQ200 provides amazing stability when cranking, and the torque limiting levelwind ensures your braid will be evenly distributed on the spool without bowing. You’ll be able to fit 175 yards of 40# braided spectra on the S3D large diameter spool, and even more if you choose a micro line like Samurai Braid. Shimano’s X-Ship gearing stability places two ball bearings on either end of the pinion gear, making the retrieve both powerful and fluid – extremely important when finesse fishing. Additionally, the Shimano Calcutta Conquest CTCNQ200 features the MicroModule gear system which uses much smaller teeth on the gears for improved meshing. The Japanese made CTCNQ200 is sure to become the flagship reel of Shimano’s vast line of baitcasting reels, and will definitely become your favorite baitcaster.
