My new favorite flippin/big bass combo.

Recommended Posts

After a few months dialing in my shimano calcutta 200b reel, rod and line combo I came up with the calcutta 200b on a shimano teramar TMC-X70MH with 20lb power-pro line.  Quick hookset, lots of drag power yet still light enough to cast 1/8oz bullet t-rigged plastics with no problems.  Seems kinda heavy but lands the big'ns straight up.

Anyone else out here like the smaller calcuttas for bass?

I've seen lots of guys using them..mostly for swimbaits. I just bought a Cardiff 201A, with the shimano Calcutta rod CLC-X76M, haven't caught any fish with it yet..hopefully tomorrow..

The teramar is one heavy stick. It is really gonna wear you down if you need to flip all day. A good cheap alternative is a Powell 766.

20lb braid for a flipping/big bass combo?

50-65 might be a better choice. Just a thought.
