Shimano is proud to introduce the new Shimano Calcutta D Series Casting Reels - the next generation in round reels. Featuring a whole new design, the new Calcutta D Series Reels combine the classic performance of the originals with some key new features and enhancements all their own. Delivering serious cranking power, they also provide the rigidity and durability to stand up to season after season of use - whether you fish in freshwater or saltwater. Shimano’s new X-Drag also provides the ultimate in fish fighting force, and each reel now comes equipped with Shimano’s X-Ship technology for better free-spooling, as well as, Shimano’s ‘S Compact Body’ for better ergonomic comfort in your hands. The new Shimano Calcutta D Series Casting Reels are leading the new Round Era for anglers looking for quality, function, design and longevity.
