Calcutta TE vs. Daiwa Luna

4 posts in this topic

This might have been done already, but just wondering, the fact I own both does'nt matter, I just want to know personal preference.

I also own both, but haven't really spent enough time with the TE yet. My initial thoughts are it's smoother than the Luna, and the non-disengaging levelwind is at least part of what makes it feel smoother. I'm not sure if I really think it's worth the extra $$ over the Luna, though. If it lasts a few years without busting gear teeth, it will probably get my vote. I definitely like the Luna more than the 400B.

Ultimately they are both great reels and I can't imagine being disappointed with either. If they were the same price, 400TE for sure, though.

I just got two lunas, and they are smoother than my Abu's and have not fished with them yet but they are smooth wise. I have always found interest in the Calcutta TE reels but dont have the money to do it...maybe later. They both are great reels.

I have both reels. The TE feels more solid and the drag is fantastic, but I must say that the Luna has been the more reliable reel. I believe the TE needs more regular lubrication.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
