Calcutta is the classic round reel that defines perfection, other manufacturers are measured against Calcutta, and few come close. Super-strong, ultralight forged aluminum frames and sideplates ensure that all parts will remain in perfect alignment for lifelong smooth power and solid rigidity. The 400 size reels offer more line capacity for heavier line and longer running fish but still offer the features that make the rest of the lineup comfortable to fish with. The 400 reels will both cast extremely well and are used for distance surf casting applications and flylining live bait. The 400S does not have a level wind and will cast lighter weights a little better than the standard 400. The thumb bar is located on the rear right side of the reel making it easy to reach with your thumb and the clicker is located on the bottom of the left side so it will not accidentally be turned on when you don't want it while remaining easy to reach to shut it off. This versatile reel is the perfect size for trolling lead core line, side planers and diving boards, on the downrigger for those big Macks and Great Lake salmon, and for any situation where casting is involved. The Calcutta Live Bait Handle was designed for the Calcutta 400 reels and will give you incredible leverage for moving big fish like barn door halibut and sturgeon. When you need a tough, high capacity reel, look no further, Calcutta has it all.

Comments: one of the best big swimbait and big fish reels you can buy. you wont be dissapointed

From: Justin: Brea, CA

Comments: Terrific for swimbait: both freshwater and salt! No problems with rust, and it casts very smoothly with heavy line. I've had mine for over a year, and fish it everywhere from San Diego inshore fishing, to bass tournament series in Central Texas. Sic 'em Bears!
