Re: Conquest 100 users

Got the reel in the mail today. Alls I can say is "WOW". Smooth, and small. The palm side is without a doubt just as small as my Conquest 50. This reel is gonna be fun. =D>

Re: Opinion: It may not be worth it

I recently sold off a few high end reels that I just loved, but would never use them for whatever reason. However, I have always wanted to get a newer Conquest, so I figured I got the extra coin now, so why not. :lol: Its a viscous cycle. :doh:

Conquest 100 users

I love round reels, they are just a thing all on their own. I have a CQ50, and a Calcutta100XT. I love my 200GTB, but its just a little too big for me. Loving the look of the reel, I just stuck it in the display case cause its pretty. :lol: I sold a bunch of stuff I dont use, and decided to order my...

Re: Lews KVD reel?

As funny as it sounds, Shimanos gears are complete junk. From the "I" series up, nothing but pure garbage for durability. Plenty of friends with Doyo products (mostly Lews) that flip/punch/frog with reels with aluminum gears and no "geary" feel after prolonged use. Their Shimano I's, K's, SLX's, no...

Re: Tatula Hate vs newer shimanos

........serious. Doyo? :roll: Yeah. Actually. Some of the reels they produce are rather stellar. For instance, the BPS JM Signature Platinum. All aluminum construction, solid internal components, dual braking system. I put it right there with my Shimano CU50E in the fun and overall performance. Ive...

Re: Tatula Hate vs newer shimanos

I personally have not been impressed with anything Shimano or Daiwa in the "workhorse" range. Ive been more satisfied overall with Doyo products. Who’s designing for Doyo these days? Doyo makes Quantum and Abu reels to the mfgr's specs. Doyo. They are their own manufacturer that makes many brands a...

Re: Shimano reel names

Although I think Vanford is a weird name for a spinning reel, I hope they are not eliminating the 'Stradic' name for it. That would be a huge mistake. Everyone knows what a stradic is and they scream quality. It would be like Aunt Jemima changing its syrup name after 130 years.. oh crap wait... lol...

Shimano used to be like this for USDM.

All casting reels started with C

All spinning reels started with S

Re: First experience with japanese round profile BFSish reel: Shimano Calcutta Conquest 51

The "actual" Calcutta Conquest 50 is by far one of my favorite reels Shimano ever produced. If you actually get your hands on the Conquest version, youll love it even more as the spool is better. Definitely built them better back in the day.
