I recently purchased the 400B and it is by far the smoothest baitcasting reel I've ever used. I researched this reel for around 2 weeks and was stuck between this and an Avet. After a lengthy discussion with an attendant in the reel department I chose the Calcutta and it is spot on!!! I can definitely see why people continue to use these reels year after year, I will definitely buy another.

Bought the 100b , and couldn't be more pleased. I own several Shimano reels, love them all, but this reel is in a class all by itself. I have over my many years owned many round reels, but never one with such a small, easy to handle profile. This reel is an absolute pleasure to fish with. I will be purchasing another one, soon hopefully.

I like the general feel of the 200B. The drag was very weak. I changed it out with Carbontex washers and I can tell a difference. This is a good reel with the upgrade.

I bought this when my last 200 got a little tired looking, and I will say that this is the best you can at this price, the extra ball bearings are well worth the 30 bucks, anyone who casts a regular 200 and tries mine realizes how killer this reel is, from trout, reds, snook, snapper, bass, catfish, this reel is top of the line quality at an excellent price.
