Re: Calcutta Conquest SE

I will be buying the Conquest SE for sure. Might save the refund I got for my busted Stradic FM and use it to lessen the sting of the SE. Really hope the make the improvement for casting better than that of the Metanium Shallow Edition (versus regular spool). In the Metanium aspect, the shallow spoo...

So just under 400, if it has a clicking drag then I’m sold….
I would bet anything it does. I am guessing it will be identical to the 100HG, but with a shallow spool and gunmetal color. That is good though, 100HG is one of the best reels of all time (that I've used).

Re: 22 Aldeberan BFS Line Choice Help

Using 8lb InvizX on mine, holds plenty and casts great. Concerning Sufix, their 6lb is .006"/.14mm and original PowerPro 15lb is .008"/.19mm, so they aren't way off. Sufix is always known as thicker braid. I have used the 6lb and 8lb both for BFS on DIY spools and it was great.

Re: Returning JDM Issues

Still no resolution ya'll. I have been to Walgreens like 4 times. They either say the QR code is invalid or they don't know how to ship or get a label with an account number. Gonna call before driving there today, still hoping for resolution. Is this the Stradic that you had issues with on an earli...

Re: Calcutta Conquest SE

I'm thinking it will be identical frame and gears as the 2021 100HG version. The weights are both at 220g or 7.8oz. This was the opposite case for the BFS version, the weights were different and gear ratios matched the Aldebaran BFS. People assumed Shimano would just use the aluminum micro gears and...

Re: Calcutta Conquest SE

Literally smiling ear to ear right now. I love my 100HG so much, but hate to buy the same reel over and over. Hoping this model has the higher tier micro brass gears.

Returning JDM Issues

Got a potentially defective reel from Japan, seller said all good, and said send it back on their account number, Wal-Greens Fedex department said I needed a QR code. So after about 4 messages I got a QR code and now they say it won't scan. No idea what to do at this point, my JDM retailer has been ...

Re: Underestimated Lures (or Unappreciated)

All great stories and info. Looking back, it took me a while to get into jig fishing. Now I crawl jigs on the river almost the same as plastics like a shaky head worm.

Flukes, whether rigged with a light belly weight or weightless are very underappreciated.

Re: Ticking Sound-Stradic FM

So the retailer said they would take it back, posted them the youtube video where they could hear it. Said I would get a full refund as soon as I send it, question is now, what do I get? I really liked the FM, but it is barely different than the FL to me. Hoping if I grab another I go with the 2500S...
