Shimano Calcutta CT400 Fishing Reels

Fishing Reels Manufacturer: Shimano
Shimano Model: Calcutta CT400
Review Category: Fishing Reels

Purchase: Fishing Reels Wholesale sports in Canada, price was @$300.00 Canadian. I chose this unit under the advisement of the salesperson that it was the perfect baitcaster for salmon.

Things I like about the Shimano Calcutta CT400 Fishing Reels: Smooth operation, good looks, casts well.

What I don't like about the Shimano Calcutta CT400: The level wind seems quite fragile, the drag is not very smooth and most of all the bait alarm button digs into your hand if you have a right hand retrieve and will eventually give you extremely uncomfortable blisters.

Fishing Reels Calcutta CT400 quality: One piece aluminum body, gold color with thumb bar casting.

Calcutta CT400 summary: Any reel that causes this much pain is not worth owning. I literally had to switch to my spinning reel after a while cause I had a open wound from the button digging into my nuckle.
