A circular form that satisfies the hearts of anglers.
Calcutta Conquest BFS is Shimano's only circular double-shaft bait finesse reel. The solid body created by forging cutting is not only functional, but also has beauty and elegance as a tool. Facing the deep world of light lures centered on black bass and mountain stream trout, the traditional form that blends into the natural scenery and the unique presence of the circular reel will satisfy the hearts of anglers.
Low trajectory cast at will. Equipped with MGL spool III.
Equipped with MGL spool III, which has achieved low inertia by significantly thinning the wall. Immediately after release, it starts up easily and achieves a relaxed cast feel, as well as improved long-distance castability and trouble-free performance. Pinpoint casting with low trajectory is also possible. It is possible to comfortably send lightweight lures to the cover.
NEW FTB that achieves a relaxed flight with a wide range of compatible settings.
The Calcutta Conquest BFS uses the NEW FTB, which expands the range of motion of the brake unit and allows for a wide range of brake settings. In the conventional model, the magnetic force of the magnet affected the spool even when the dial was set to 1, but the NEW FTB succeeded in reducing the effect of the magnetic force on the spool to as close to zero as possible due to the magnetic ring effect. The synergistic effect with MGL Spool III has further refined the light launch and extended low trajectory.
S3D and silent tune contribute to improving casting performance.
Cutting technology S3D that increases spool precision and Silent Tune, which applies light pressure to the bearing that holds the spool to reduce vibrations during high-speed rotation, also contribute greatly to improving casting performance. In addition to the MGL Spool III and NEW FTB, by thoroughly eliminating elements that inhibit rotation, we have been able to stably achieve long casts that do not stall until just before landing on the water.
Natural palming performance brought about by low profile.
The body has been made compact like the 21 Calcutta Conquest. The spool has been lowered due to the lower profile body, allowing you to grip it with a more natural form. The interference with the thumb due to the height of the spool is reduced, increasing the freedom of the wrist, allowing for flexible and accurate casting.
