Comparison

Recommended Posts

The Core is much lighter than the Calais.

Look at the Core 50MG. too. I happen to like that size better.

I take it the 50MG is smaller then the 100MG? Is that just profile size? line capacity? Whats the difference?

My problem is I do not know crap about baitcasters all I know is I want a good one that will be good for chucking cranks for a variety of species....I spend 90% of my time fishing for bass and walleye BUT in the fall I do spend a lot of time chucking plugs for King Salmon that run up the rivers near me so I am hoping for somthing with the finess to be a good bass reel and the power to deal with bigger fish (if that exists.)

If I am going to spend $400 I am going to do my homework.

Have you looked at the Shimano Calcutta TE casting reel? I know a lot of people like to use them for cranks. They are nearly indestructible and can handle big fish like you mentioned.

Yep. I use a Calcutta 50TE for my cranks on a 7.5 Loomis Crank rod. It's a match made in heaven.

I have the Calcutta TE 401, Calcutta TE201 DC, and the Calais series A. I love them all. If was going after salmon I'd use my Calcutta TE 401. But if you can only use one for both salmon and bass, I think I would get a Calcutta TE 200 or 300.

But I admit I love my Calais series A, and it should be able to handle a good big salmon I would think.

Oh I forgot to add that the higher the number the bigger the line capacity. So Calcutta TE 200 holds less of the same type of line than a Calcutta TE 300.

I hope that helps. :)
