The newest Calais series are the "A" series - 200A, 200APV, 200ASV, 100A - They are all amazing reels with one major "drawback" - their weight.  The trend these days is to make the lightest, most flashy, high performance models - ie. the Daiwa Steez - which is an incredible reel itself.  I do like the lightweight high performance reels, but the Calais casts and retrieves like a dream.  We each have to decide for ourselves whether or not something is "worth" the price.  I will say that the Calais is an extremely well built, long lasting, high performance reel.
