Shimano Calcutta 100XT
« on: February 25, 2019, 02:34:17 PM »

Just got this in the mail today from Japan. Another killer score from a seller I frequent. This reel is like new, and smooth as hell. No box or papers, but a rare find in this condition, especially for the price. Ots gonna get spooled with 14lb Stren mono and used to toss crankbaits and other treble hook baits.

Went today to pick up a slight mod that this reel needed. The 80mm handle was just too tiny. So I replaced it with a 90mm carbon fiber handle from HawgTech, and Septon knobs.

I got use this reel for a good bit of time today. Alls i can say is its a butter reel. They just dont make them like this anymore. The ease of casting and retrieving in just nuts. I really dont like tossing cranks, but now I have a good reason to.

Looks like a great reel.  I like some of the older round reels.  Occasionally I drag my of red 4500 Garcia out and use it for a day or two, but I'm like you I don't throw cranks very much.
