Shimano Calcutta D Baitcasting Reels offer a whole new design to the reel series that has become a classic with both fresh and saltwater anglers. These reels come in sizes for serious cranking and with the power, rigidity and durability for season after season use. With Shimano’s ‘S Compact Body’ for better in the hand comfort, the new Calcutta D reels will lead a new Round Era for anglers who look for quality, function, design and longevity.

|What a shame|
My only complaint is that although the manual emphasizes the importance of maintenance, it gives absolutely no information about how to do so. I visited the Shimano website and they don't even have a reel schematic available for download. YouTube has videos about this particular reel, but they basically consist of advertising. So, it looks like Shimano has succeeded in producing an excellent reel and plenty of advertising, but have failed in the details, i.e., documentation. What a shame.
Pros: Mechanical engineering perfection
Cons: Poor documentation
Best Uses: none
