  • Great Alternative

    Sep 20, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: cost, feel
    Cons: may give uneven line spooling

    Summary: For those who don't want to spend the money for a Calcutta you should look into the Shimano Corsair. It features three bearings and a smooth drag system. The 400 models have a big line capacity and a good levelwind. The casting is smooth and the reel ... read more

  • Corsair 400A replaced

    Pros: New model casts well and does not foul line. Inexpensive.
    Cons: Not as rugged as the Calcutta

    Summary: Shimano must have had some complaints about the original Corsair because they've redesigned the reel and improved it. I just got the new version of the 400A and it beats the old version by a mile. The trouble with the original, at least for me, was that ... read more

    Pros: everything
    Cons: nothing

    Summary: From using this reel for a couple of months now, it was the best reel i have used in its price range. I have used quantum irons to abu garcia's and out of all of them i love this one the most. First of all the price is the best. For this reel it is ... read more

    Pros: line capacity,smooth drag,simple construction
    Cons: smooth drag,no positive engagement of spool, clicker connected with plastic

    Summary: I have had good luck with Shimano in the past, generally they are pretty dependable, but this one stinks . I've been fishing the Gulf Coast daily since I was a child and I usually wade or surf fish . Most of the locations I fish at are out of the way ... read more

  • Good Musky Reel

    Pros: tough, smooth
    Cons: none

    Summary: I love Shimano reels. The Corsair is one of my favorites. It is a very smooth reel for its size. It's very resistant to backlash, and its drag system is excellent. The 400A is big enough for Muskies and Northern Pike. My buddy John, ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive, good line capacity
    Cons: Heavy, poor casting, cheaply constructed

    Summary: This is a pretty good reel to troll with, if you were fishing for stripers or walleye, but beyond that it's not worth wasting your money on. I'm a big fan of Shimano reels but this one is junk. A Garcia Ambassador for about the same price is a better ... read more
