Here it is – the most widely used, highly sought after, and easily recognizable Shimano that may have ever been created. The Shimano Calcutta CT400B Round Baitcasting Reel. We sell so many of these here at J&H, I’ve contemplated buying stock in Shimano. Seriously, this reel has so many applications, it could give GooglePlay a run for its money. Anglers here on Long Island use the CT400B for a wide array of uses – fluking in the bay or ocean, baitfishing for stripers and blues, throwing bucktails and tins at cruising weaks, or bottomfishing for porgies and seabass. With Shimano’s proprietary Dartainium drag system pumping out 17.5# drag, the CT400B has more than enough cojones to stop even cow sized stripers. Anglers fishing southern waters will love this reel for tossing live shrimp at redfish and speckles, and freshwater anglers are accustomed to this beauty slaying its fair share of large pike and walleye. With so many goodies (cold forged aluminum frame, machined aluminum spool, non-disengaging levelwind system with titanium insert, High Efficiency Gearing, 4 SA-RB ball bearings, Super Stopper Anti-Reverse system and Variable Brake System) it’s a wonder that the Shimano Calcutta CT400B Round Baitcasting Reel only goes for two and a quarter. You can be sure upon purchasing this legendary piece of fishing equipment, that your hard earned dollars will be very well spent. Just turn the handle.
