• Revolutionary Digital Control Braking system
• Capable of exceeding 30,000 RPM
• Achieved casting distances of over 88.7m in testing
Shimano has taken the next step in cast control technology with the Calcutta DC 250. Introducing the revolutionary Digital Control system. This is the first self-energizing Digital Braking “smart” baitcasting feature. It features 8 different pre-programmed braking patterns based on lure and casting type. With this technology, each of the 8 pre-programmed braking patterns provide awesome control of the feeding of the line by applying the ideal amount of braking force at critical intervals. As a result, it is possible to achieve long, accurate casts with consistent backlash control. The application of the “smart” braking by the Digital Control System quickly stabilizes the spool rotation. Digital Control varies the amount of braking force depending on line tension, minimizing the chance of the dreaded backlash.
The increased RPM’s provided by the Digital Control System ensure longer casts. At the same time, the pre-programmed braking patterns allow for not only easy, external adjustment for any situation, but also an extremely manageable cast with less backlash. Overall, the Digital Control Braking System means further casts, less effort, less backlash, and easy, quick adjustment. The future has arrived!
