    Calcutta Te or Revo Winch???

    Hey hows it going, thinking I need a new reel for my trip. Im torn between Calcutta Te either a 300 or 400, or a Revo Winch.
    Any input will be greatly appreciated. I use Shimano Curado's 200 E7's for bass fishing. But Im thinking the Curado 200's wont hold up to the abuse of these big baits?

    400 TE is a good all around reel, the Toro winch is good for double 10's but to slow IMO to keep up with a fish heading for the boat... least thats my experience. The best all around Toro is the 5:4 gearing thats been discontinued, but if you can find one they are a good reel...

    Can't speak to the Calcutta, but I did purchase a winch this past summer. The low profile is a dream, and it pulls 10's very well, but I must admit it is difficult to get used to the speed at which you must reel.

    If purchasing this as an all purpose reel, I wouldn't recommend it, as it would be nearly impossible to reel up slack line while fishing a jerkbait or ripping big plastic. If you were to dedicate it to the use of twin 10's it is worthwhile

    Hope this helps

    I have two Curado SF 200's that I have used for muskie fishing since 1999. Still running strong, never oiled, never repaired, beat to crap. I use them for smaller bucktails like ghost tails and for topwaters. They are fantastic.

    i vote Calcutta. Still think its a better reel for the money. I have both and use both alot. the Winch is a one trick pony. It will tow dbl 10's and its too slow for anything else (My opinion).

    I would get an original calcutta over a revo, let alone the te, unless you want a deal in a few years, I am sure the revo will be disontinued and on closeout like they do with most of their reels.

    I like the Revo for throwing the big stuff.

    Another vote for the revo toro. Have had many reels over the years and the toro beats them all. Worth the money.
