CQ 100/200 HG 2015 May

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I am wondering why the 200 gained so much weight? The 100 gained 5g going from regular to HG and got a longer handle. The 200 gained 25g with the same length handle. They both got the "exciting" drag clicker according to shimano but I don't see how that could add nearly an oz and only to the larger model. Was interested in a 201 HG but 265g is getting heavyish for my planned use.

I believe you need to rethink the lineup since the new 2014 CQ100/101 replaces the 50/51 reels now. I pre-ordered 2 2015 CQ 101 HG (6.8:1) which only adds about 5g in weight while adding a longer handle over the 2014 CQ 101 (5.2:1).

I could swear i saw somewhere that hedgehog was working on a 7 ratio for the new conquest. Looks like shimano beat them to the punch

Thats fair. Its just 25g heavier than the 2014 Conquest 200 according to Shimano. I had wondered if they had published a mistake. The regular 200 is 240g and the 200HG is 265g according to their own specs. Surely a different set of gears isn't adding this much weight, I wonder what else they have changed from the standard model.
