Re: calcutta 400b or Diawa Luna 300
I have both a Calcutta TE and the Diawa Lina. I had the Calcutta first. When I went to buy a second one, the store convinced me to try the Luna. Both handle stripers over 40 pounds...I know that. The Luna actually casts better than the TE...this from someone who owns 3 Calcuttas. So, it is a toss up depending on the type of striper fishing you are doing. If you plan on tossing plugs, get the Luna. Overall durability, I know Calcutta last forever.
