65lb bluecats hate them, WHY! Cause mines bringing them in with no problems.
I got them on a PINNACLE POWERTIP PRO 7' MH action rod.
Grab 2 i promise you wont be disappointed!

Casts well, easy to adjust drag, I'm happy with it, the real test will be hooking a salmon on it but it's been able to handle everything I've asked of it.

I bought this reel to test out Shimano. I had other reels in the same price range if not higher and didn't perform as well as this one did.I used it for for pink salmon and steelhead on an 8' 6 rod. Keep this reel clean and it will go far. As hard as i am on reels this one earned my respect .It survived count less dips in the river and sand in the gears .Now i got a Calcutta . thanks shimano for giving me a reel that could last a whole season.
Now i got a Calcutta boo-ya!

Shimano Corvalus reels

I purchased 6 Corvalus reels (2-200; 2-300 & 2-400) back in 06 for my fishing guest and have never had an issue with any of them.
I fish the super saline Laguna Madre and the Gulf of Mexico. We have caught 40 inch plus reds, 30# Jack Crevalle and Red Snapper w/o a problem and very poor maintenance habits (rinse w/ water & spray w/ WD-40).
PS: I have had 2 Calcuttas for 15 yrs so Shimano is worth the money at any price range.
