      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Shimano Calcutta help, what model is this?

Recommended Posts

I have a broken Calcatta 200 and can no longer tell which model 200 this is. The pin at the bottom of the level wind has broken off and Shimano has stopped working on the CT200. Is this a Ct or something else. I've had this reel for about 10 years now and it's been flawless up till now and I'd hate to have to get rid of it.

Thanks in advance.

You will be surprised if you look around for parts. I can try to help you locate the right parts. I'll take a look for schematics and whatnot later this afternoon when I get home from work. Calcuttas are very popular reels and some companies even made aftermarket parts.

OK, got a second e-mail from a second guy from inside, and said its a straight up 200 not the CT.. but he said that if anybody could fix it or would have the parts it would be Tim @ Wayzata Bait...

Thanks Deitz.

This is an excelent reel and I'd hate to lose her. If anybody is thinking of a great reel that will cast a million (?) miles of line, don't be afraid of the Calcutta's price. These things rock. Smooth as butter, tough as nails.

Glad to be able to help.. I am on the shimano pro staff and have a few strings to pull, if I can help, feel free to email me.

deitz.dittrich@gmail.com

They are a great reel, I have a few of the newer chronarchs, have not been disapointed yet.

If you have any problems getting it fixed, please email me.

Ok Deitz, as long as I've got you, whats the (besides the obvious, size) difference between a round baitcaster and a low profile baitcaster? Does one have any advantage over the other?

mnfishinguy,

Here are the part numbers you need.

BNT0042 - Line Guide Pawl

BNT0060 - Spacer (optional)

BNT1239 - Pawl Cap

All the parts together would probably cost you less than 10 bucks, plus the shipping charge. The Line Guide Pawl is the part you are describing that is broken, and the spacer and Pawl Cap on your reel are probably okay if you took them off before the pic was shot, but replacing the entire assembly when they are cheap parts is probably good insurance. It would take you all of 5 minutes tops to do the change yourself, just need a flat head screw driver.

The picture you show first, looks like the pawl, spacer, and pawl cap are all missing. Not 100% on that but that is how it appears in the pic.

Give Shimano customer service a call, all of those parts are available as they are still used on reels they produce today. The pawl (BNT0042) is used on every single baitcasting reel with a levelwind. Caps are different base on the quality of the reel.

I would say the biggest advantage of round baitcasters is usually line capacity. Round Reels will usually hold more line.

Low profile have an advantage on weight, and comfort.

Hope this answers your question.

Thanks again guys. The Shimano HSOforum is nice that they show you the blow ups and have part numbers for you, plus they rebuild the reels for you too, if you want to go that route.

Polar, yes, it's missing. When it broke the plastic piece that holds it ll together just kind of crumbled in my hand.

Deitz, that answers it. I need to upgrade about a half dozen baitcasters and was wondering about the low profile ones. I have 4 Ambasadours (sp?) and the one Calcutta and was just wondering if/what the advantage to a low profile reel was. I used a friends low profile midrange price ($200) Quantum this summer and loved how well it casted but I've turned into a Shimano guy (other than the four musky Abu reels it's all Shimano spinning reels for me) so I don't think I'll go down that road.

    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
