Shimano has completely redesigned the Calcutta TE reels and what emerged is the awesome Shimano Calcutta D Baitcasting Reels. Shimano packed these round baitcasting reels with cutting edge technology including X-Ship which creates a lot of power with an effortless turn of the handle, all aluminum body with a tapered non-handle side that fits in your hand better, and four ball bearings for excellent smoothness. Shimano has also moved the star drag to the outside position of the handle, making it smaller and giving you better access to it. The reels have an exterior coating that protects it from corrosion. If you are looking for a really great baitcasting reel and you want the best technology on the market then a Shimano Calcutta D Baitcaster is the reel for you!
Shimano Calcutta D Baitcasting Reels are available in right and left handed models. Fish it in freshwater or saltwater. Calcutta Ds were designed to fish with braid, but fill it up with mono if you like.
Models: CT200D, CT201D, CT300D, CT301D, CT400D, CT401D

This is a very nice reel. Round reels are difficult for me to use with my arthritic hand, but this one is not too bad. It is a pain to adjust the centrifugal brake control.
