I also took the 12lb YoZuri off, and spooled it with 10lb Senshi. Search for the perfect fit reel seat, and found the Fuji 2 to be the best fit.

Looks like a nice palm. Comfy !!! Hope it works out for ya.

For the last couple of days I've been looking at the Calcutta 301D and Calcutta Conquest 301.
They are definitely nice and a right size for what I want. The Conquest Series is expensive!

For one in very good condition you are gonna pay a premium price. With that price comes one of the smoothest reels ever made.

What's your opinion between the B and D series?

I personally think the B series was a nicer reel, but there are many differences of opinions to every person on what they require in a reel. Thus the reason I went with the older Conquest vs a newer one.

Thanks! Many people (internet search) prefer the B series.
And then, there is the Daiwa Luna. How do they compare to the Shimano Calcutta B and D series?

I dont have any experience with Daiwas round reels. Im sure they are on an equal level though.

Just got this in the mail today. Guy had it up for 275, then apparently got desperate to sell and dropped it to 235. I couldnt resist. Its mint with a Zpi handle. I sold my NIB Zillion Coastal, so I had the coin after that profit. Fair trade off considering these reels will hold value better. So, on the shelf it will go, and ill swap the handles and use the Zpi.

I got some good time out with this reel on its Halo Daylite M F rod. Really put a smile on my face with it spoiled with 8lb diameter mono. Spook JR? Into orbit! One cast was a easy 40yds, and of course a Snakehead nails the bait way out there. But then makes a b line towards and then past my boat. Catching up line was no problem with this reel. As the fish went past the boat it was taking line, and it was going out nice and smooth thanks to the carbon fiber drag. Unfortunately, I had brought a knife to a gunfight as this Snakehead was a good size at about 7 to 8lbs. After a 5 minute fight of it jumping and diving and running, all while having to chase it down at some points with the trolling motor, if found a rock to go under somewhere. That was the end of that. Got nothing but a badly scoared line and a lost spook. SMH. What I got out of it was a huge smile towards this Conquest as it was just an amazing experience.
