Shimano Calcutta TE 400LJV Baitcasting Reel
The Shimano Calcutta TE 400LJV round baitcasting reel a modification of the popular and reliable Calcutta TE series. Every component on this round baitcast reel at Amazon or eBay looks and performs like a state-of-the-art fishing weapon. The cold-forged aluminium frame and stamped aluminium handle side plate offer incredible strength and long-lasting durability. A machined-aluminium spool and High-Efficiency Gearing will release the line with ease and retrieve it smoothly. The unique feature on the Calcutta TE 400LJV is an adjustable handle shank. This allows for a super slow retrieve and extra power when needed. To make this change anglers would have to remove the handle and then reassemble it into the second hole on the handle itself. This will vary the retrieve speed and increase or decrease its torque.
The Shimano drilled top crossbar reduces the reels overall weight. The handle sports an ergonomic grip. Featuring six Shielded A-RB ball bearings and one Anti-Rust Bearing roller relation. The recessed reel at Amazon or Ebay foot is another example of the reel fine craftsmanship. “CTE” Clicker is strategically placed out of the way so you don’t accidentally turn it on. Powerful hook setting is afforded by the Super Stopper Anti-Reverse that eliminates back play and the Assist Stopper Back-up Anti-Reverse that reduces stress on the one roller bearing. The Dartainium Drag provides a wide range of drag settings and ultrasmooth drag performance. The Variable Brake System uses centrifugal force to cast for increased distances. Easy access side plate. Rubber handle grip. Titanium level wind insert. Bottom line is that you will find a host of features you would normally expect to see in a Calcutta TE 400.
