is pretty cool. I like how they added more saltwater gear and have a wide selection of reels.
That new 700TE........I'd rather have a Trinidad. It looks too compact and round. The handle looks a lot stronger and user friendly.

I got mine the other day and agree.

It is bigger than other master Catalogues that I remember from before.

lol..Yea the Trinidad is a great reel..BUT has no level-wind. I checked out Mark's(Fisherman's) and i like the handle a lot with the new grip..i contacted Shimano to find out if i can get an exact match for my Calcutta 700TE..i like this new reel a lot;)
Matt did a great job of getting me this reel as soon as his Shimano rep. got his hands on one before they went into store :D
Maybe if they would have offered a level-wind model in the Trinidad i would have bought one of them..but i feel the Calcutta 700TE will work just fine next to my Conquest Calcuttas too;)
