I think so. I had the Destroyer and the handle is short and great for jerkbaits
Topwater, too.

Yes. Even with 25# fluoro no way you will spool it with a swimbait. You can bomb cast deep into the spool but it holds plenty.
Thanks Cranky

Re: Shimano Conquest dc 201 HG

Sorry to be late on this post, but does the 200 hold enough line for large swimbaits?

Re: Which one?

Everyone should buy the 2020Met so Daiwa understands we want quality reels, not a Tatula. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Seriouly. SSS you're right. Seems like Everything Daiwa makes now is some form of a tatula. I've been a Daiwa guy for 40 years, but I would have to buy a met at this point and time.

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

TT came first for me. Way back in the day, there was a monthly publication I used to get called Tackle Tester. I was 16 or so and with the 10.00 subscription they gave you a pretty decent package of California hand pours. It wasn't quite a magazine, it was more like a 20 ish page newsletter that ca...

Re: If You Sold all Your Fishing Equipment

I've sold a bunch of good stuff in the last few years and it hurts so bad. I really like what I have left, wouldn't change a thing right now.

Re: Deep Zonda spool in Alphas R Edition

I really like the R+ spool, it excels with 1/4 oz pop r's and 12# line. I found the Zonda spools works better with heavier test line and heavier baits. I like both spools better than the SV spools.

MB X7 Super Elseil is the best 1/4 oz. pop r rod I have ever used. Cast well, works the bait well, and has plenty of power to land fish.

I would take a 901s Conquest.

But my 901s NRX is my favorite spinning rod.

To me the NRX is more sensitive over the Conquest, a new NRX 901s with full grip would be awesome.
I picked up a NRX 901S, it's the most fun of all my spinning rods. Casts 1/16 oz spinner like a charm.
