The Calcutta D Series reels are the next generation of the round reels that revolutionized reel design. The Calcutta D takes advantage of the latest advances from Shimano, including X-Ship technology for better casting performance, S Compact Body design and the improved leverage of the X-Drag feature. While the Calcutta D incorporates the one-piece aluminum frame of its namesake, S Compact Body design means each model feels one size smaller. Combined with a one-piece sideplate, this results in easy handling and palming comfort. On the cranking side of the reel,the star drag adjustment is outside the handle, meaning the handle is now closer to the reel body, which results in more power and smoother cranking.
