Shimano Calcutta Conquest 50
« on: April 19, 2017, 10:57:35 AM »

I have been searching everywhere for 3 years. Prices were ridiculous for these. Finally, just finally, I found one in really good shape for a killer price. I have bought a few reels from this Japan vender, and they are always what he describes. This one was no exception. Here she is, one of my highest Holy Grail reels.

Its perfect. And its soo tiny!

Lol I know that feeling exactly. Some reels you buy and then figure out what you'll use them for.

I spooled it last night and tossed it a bit this morning. Very pleased with the abilities of this reel. This will be great for my T Rigged lizards as it will keep me slowed down a bit with them.

Played with it a bit on lunch and caught a bass on it. I will say that it is gonna take a bit to get used to this reels ergonomics. But overall Im really liking this thing. I jusg need to find a rod that compliments the palmability of this reels shape.

It looks really nice! I looked it up cause I got curious. Good review on that thing. But that 70mm handle would drive me insane. I have issues with 85mm being to small.

For me that would be one of those reels I would put up on the shelf as decoration lol.

Its not really a typical round reel as its not bulky at all. It does still palm a bit different than say a low profile reel, but its in no way as bulky as a 100 or 200 series Calcutta.

I actually just got the Morrum ZX and I love it for swimbaits. Feel like the round reel really excels at that.

Actually hate the way it sits on the seat Dobyns uses. As much as I hated the seat on the Fenwick Aetos, this reel feels better in hand on it. Cant figure that out. Lol

No way! That Aetos seat is horrible! That tiny nub for a trigger destroys my finger on hooksets. I can't imagine any reel feeling good on that rod. lol
