Lure fishing the fresh or the salt for species such as bass, golden perch, cod or barramundi means you need to consider the benefits of a quality baitcast reel: the top of your list should include options such as the Shimano Calcutta Baitcast reels. Calcutta B Baitcast reels have been around since the 1990's and are as popular with anglers as ever. Shimano products are associated with quality engineering and performance, and this is exactly what you will find when you get your hands on a Calcutta CT200B Baitcast reel.
The CT200B looks impressive with its signature rich gold anodising. The large handle with rubberised grips is designed to fit the hand, and with its dimensions, you will find that less time is spent looking down towards the reel and more time is dedicated to fishing. This reel features a Super Stopper, Assist Stopper and will run smoothly for years on three of Shimano's specially designed S A-RB Bearings. This reel weighs very little at 287 grams which means you can cast effortlessy all day. It packs a punch with 5 kg of drag and a 6.0:1 gear ratio. If performance and durability are what you need in a baitcast reel then Shimano are confident enough to offer a 10 year warranty with the CT200B so do yourself a favour and check one out before your next lure fishing expedition.
