One of the highest selling baitcast reels of all time, there is a reason that the design or demand has not changed in 20 years!

For a reel that was released in the mid-1990s, it is amazing that the Calcutta B is still one of the largest selling baitcasters on the market.

Featuring a rich gold anodizing, the Calcutta B is more saltwater resistant than ever before. Each model features a larger style handle with rubberized grips, Super Stopper, Assist Stopper, and runs smoothly on three of Shimano’s patented A-RB Bearings plus one roller bearing.


Product Features:

  • 10 Year Warranty 
  • Hagane Body  
  • Level Wind 
  • Saltwater Ready
  • Shielded Anti-Rust Bearings


Product Technologies:

Hagane Body

The HAGANE Body is produced from high rigidity aluminum or magnesium. This creates stiffness and impact resistance, while at the same time eliminating flexing of the body. The result is a rock-solid housing and support for the moving internal gearing and greater efficiency throughout the reel.             



Shimano S ARB bearings are high corrosion resistant ARS ball bearings with an extra shield for improved protection against sand, salt, or dust.      


Super Free Spool

The Super Free bearing supported pinion gear system (SF) was designed to eliminate friction on the spool shaft during the cast. In standard baitcasting reels, when the clutch bar is pressed down, the pinion gear is freed and can drag on the spool shaft, creating friction and limiting the length of the cast. With SF, the pinion gear is supported by a ball bearing, and when the clutch is disengaged the pinion gear and spool shaft are kept in precise alignment. The result is zero friction on the spool shaft for increased free spool.



VBS uses centrifugal force rather than magnets to aid controlling the cast. The individual brake weights, when turned on, are forced outward at the beginning of the cast when backlashes most often occur, causing friction that reduces the speed of the spool. Once the spool speed begins to slow, the pressure lessens, allowing the spool to continue spinning. The result is a much more consistent spool speed that is easier to manage and takes advantage of the reel's maximum casting distance.
