Calcutta 400S for Narrow Lever Drag


Ready to go toe to toe on bird law any time.

Just picked up a Calcutta 400s that I planned to use as a light bait reel. Haven't even tried to fish it yet. Seems to be in great shape. I am kind of kicking myself because I think I'd rather have something with a narrow spool so I can also work some light jigs with it and worry less about laying line on the spool while jigging. I prefer a lever drag reel, but open to a narrow star drag.

Based on what a Calcutta 400s sells for on eBay, I don't think it's out of line to trade for an SXJ, an older Tyrnos 8, or something similar. Looking for a single speed reel because I'll be fishing ~15# line on it and I don't see the need for a winch.

Hit me up if you've got a trade in mind.
