Re: 21' Calcutta Conquest 100 vs 200

Don't have em, but i don't see why they'd be the same size. The palming side plate of the 200 is very small and comfy for a 200 size reel, but the 100 must be even smaller. Years ago Shimano revamped these reels so everything palms a size smaller than the legacy frames. In other words, the 100 palm...

Re: New to Big swimbait fishing, have questions and looking for advice.

It's been some time since I fished a Dobyns 795, but from my recollection it is best as a treble hook bait rod. As for reels, that all depends on your budget and the line capacity you're comfortable fishing. There's a lot of room above the Tatula brand. For line, I encourage you to read through our ...

Threw 3.5-4oz soft plastic swimbaits with mine during the Spring.. no issues.
In the TT review there's a mention of not using the JDM model for bigger lures, and your preference for the USA model for heavier baits.
Zander's opinion/recommendation... not mine ;)

Re: New rod help

I was wanting to try a Phenix K2 but just realized they only make their spinning rod in a L and ML action. Was kind of bummed when I found that out. Any other recommendations? Just a thought, but if you were really set on a K2, they do make their blanks available, so you might consider the custom r...

Re: Tatula limited release date?

I'm a daiwa fan 100% , that's all I fish. But ,daiwa and the tatula is like the c-vid and the main stream media...they just can't let it go. At least throw a free floating spool in it. Kind of covered already by Bronze, but just wanted to re-iterate, the free floating spool is an option if you move...
