Rod for Shimano Calcutta 50B Reel?

Recommended Posts

What do you plan on throwing with it, I use mine for slow rolling spinner baits or change rods & throw a light Texas or wacky rigs.

With the centrifugal brakes/cast control properly setup and mounted on a quality rod I can easily throw a Wacky Rigged Zoom Trick Worm with a 1/0 hook, Stanley 1/8 oz spinner bait, or a 1/8 oz Rat-L-Trap.

I've had mine on a Allstar Classic for years... love it... it's versatile... bass- catfish-seatrout-redfish-even striper...

I have an old Calcutta 51, and it's a lot of fun to cast.  I use mine on a cranking rod, and am quite happy.  I think this reel shine with cranks, and slow-rollin' blades.

Not sure about 1/16oz jig and plastic...maybe with the right rod and a big plastic trailer.
