More than just the top-grade materials used to make them, the Calcuttas are the result of state-of-the-art manufacturing and the latest technology. First introduced in 1991, the Calcuttas are very functional, yet uncomplicated. They do not create a lot of problems on the water. Further, the Calcuttas have a variety of features that make them the upper end model among all baitcasters. These features include Super Stopper 1-way roller bearing system to prevent any backplay on your hooksets, Shimano's Variable Break System to prevent backlashes and 3 ball bearings (1 roller plus 2 ball) for effortless casting and retrieving.

These reels are the pinnacle of baitcasters and once you have fished with one, you will understand why.
