Re: Phenix x-13 blank custom crankbait

AJ, I have a custom build with this blank. I regularly throw 6 and 10XDs. I've also thrown lipless baits down to 1/2 oz. with it. I think that it will suit your needs.

Re: Conquest HG? (anyone get theirs yet?)

20150602_185314_001_resized.jpg I received mine today. The reel is a work of art. Buttery smooth. A lot smaller then anticipated. The black highlights on the brake knob are a nice touch.

Re: Calais CL200-5

Thanks Zimbass.
I came across a couple of them in the attic. I haven't used them in years. I'm looking to change the drags and give them a good cleaning. I'll probably just send them to Shimano for service.
