The beautiful and high-functioning bait finesse reel that perfectly balances quality and performance.

The Calcutta Conquest BFS bait finesse reel is a specialized machine that condenses cutting-edge features into an elegant circular body. Equipped with a low-inertia Magnumlite Spool III and NEW FTB brake system, this reel is reborn to enhance the performance of lightweight lures, allowing them to glide along the water's surface and even accommodate flips as light as 1g. The FTB brake system, which eliminates the brake unit from the spool, contributes to the spool's low inertia. The magnet brake system takes advantage of the centrifugal properties, providing stable and elongated casting. The brake control performance has also been improved by expanding the brake unit stroke and placing a magnetic ring to remove the magnetic force during Min brake operation.

This bait finesse reel covers all the necessary functions required by anglers, such as X-SHIP, which firmly supports the gear, carbon cross washers that ensure a smooth operation even with light lines, and an exciting drag sound that captivates anglers' hearts. The circular body, made of cold-forged material and finished with high-precision cutting, not only adds to its beauty but also enhances its compactness and palming ability. The Calcutta Conquest BFS, which combines the latest features with a gentle touch, offers a unique and delightful world view that only this reel can provide, with its circular body beautifully shining in the midst of nature.

A major challenge in improving the pitching performance of lightweight lures is to reduce the weight of the spool. Conventionally, weight reduction has been achieved by blanking the spool, but as long as a brake unit is attached, there is a limit. Shimano's proprietary FTB has now succeeded in developing the lightest spool in the history of Shimano bait finesse reels by eliminating the brake unit from the spool. It is an unprecedented brake system that applies a magnetic brake directly to the spool.


State-of-the-art, gear tooth surface design and MicroModule Gear II, are further advanced through Shimano's exclusive manufacturing technology. The surfaces of the drive gear and pinion gear have been analyzed and updated from the ground up in pursuit of perfection. Further improving smooth gear feeling and reducing sound.


X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.


The HAGANE Body is a metal reel body with high rigidity. The body rigidity and impact resistance virtually eliminates body flexing. The result transforms the angler's actions directly into cranking power. It's efficiency through strength.


The MGL III Spool is an ultra-thin spool that thoroughly pursues low inertia. The spool has a reduction in inertia by about 15% compared to the second-generation MGL Spool by using a narrow shape with a width of 19 mm for the outer diameter of 34 mm. Resulting in unparalleled casting performance.
