Hi all. First post for me on this board. Ive fished freshwater for sometime and im going to be fiching saltwater more.Im wanting some opinions on a good reel for around 200 bucks.Id like a reel I could use inshore but that i could use offshore also. I know thats a hard request from a reel but the ones Im leanning towards are the shimano calcutta b 200gtb or the cacutta b 700. Any help would be appreciated. cool running................

RC i have the 200 and it works great on inshore and some smaller offshore fish as well. i have not had to fight anything over 15 lbs. on it though, so that is all i can offer to ya...

The 700 is a great reel, altho a little large for inshore or artificials, but a good live bait reel....

thanks for everyones replies. I just checked back and i see i fat fingered the reel numbers the two i am looking at is the 200 and 400 series. he 200gtb and the 400 b. I think the 200 runs about 189 and the 400 around 218 from what ive seen on the internet. sorry for the mix up any views on these two reels?
