Since introducing the Calcutta 200 in 1991, Shimano has made very few
improvements to it. Not because Their resting on their laurels, but
simply because more advanced technology is just not available today.
So Shimano channeled their energies into creating a full line of
Calcutta's for all kinds of anglers and all kinds of waters. Each reel
offers the exceptional smoothness Calcutta is known for, a highly
functional yet uncomplicated design, and a more natural palm feel for
endless hours of casting.
It's been seven years since Shimano brought the Calcutta to life, and
the design, both aesthetically and functionally, has proven itself
timeless. Even if you've found a way to wear out the one you bought in
1991, you can be confident that your new Calcutta will please you every
bit as much as your first.
