I've owned and used the Morrums, CQ51/101, CVZ 103L, and various Monoblocks. I still have my CVZ and Morrums. Everything else sold.
I like them as they do it all for me.

Everyone should own a Conquest at least once. They are fine pieces of art, and a working tool. There is just something about those Conquests that just feel "right."

Nice!! I love round reels I'm not on board with the conquests although the BFS does intrigue me....... but I do love the cv-z, TD Luna, millionaire like reels for sure!! Sights are set on a monoblock, might even have to try a Morrum but Abu weirds me out . I am an odd ball though :roll:

Conquest 51, Monoblocks, I'ze Light, and Ringa 8-)
Get your kids hooked on fishing, and they'll never have any money for drugs or alcohol.

I just got a ringa SSS and love it, I cannot believe how comfortable it is to fish. The itch to get more round reels is strong.

I have 10 some cvz's, some calcuttas, and a morrum. They all looked good imo and they've been punished for catching big bass!!

Love the round reels as well. I have a M-Ito, IZE Light, Conquest 51S and Cardiff 51SDC.

I'll be looking to add more of the Daiwa CV-Z platform in the future..Lots of parts interchangeability makes them very attractive :D

I used to own a cardiff 51 sdc and still have a calcutta conquest 51 dc both are fine feels and a piece of artwork.
However when it comes to finesse fishing for which both were designed i prefer my old daiwa steez with a megabass honecomb dpool.
Right now i got the cc dc on a m craking stick and it feel perfect on it.
