Where did you read the IPT?  If it is indeed 30 IPT, I will indeed have a 100 on order!  LOL

Jeff - click the link.  The specs on that page show 77cm for the 100HG which is about 30.3".  YEAH BABY !

 

I was planning on getting a 50-size Conquest14 had they released one this year. I note that Jun at JapanTackle has removed any reference to a 50-size on his web site so perhaps he might be hearing that it might not happen. SO, my reserved spot for a 50 will be transferred to the 100HG... :lol:

Ahh I missed that part!  Well now it looks like 2 more JDM reels in my future!  Met Dc and now a 100HG conquest!

Yeah - I had cued up the Met DC as well. However, I'm waiting to find out if the Met DC makes the usual "DC whine" - if the reel is silent...I might not be as interested...:lol:

I don't believe there's any plans for a 50 size. I don't even believe it'd be feasible, as the sideplate would be too small to house a spool.

I need some reference here. How does the CTE200GT compare to the Conquest?

RW - Your CTE-200GT is the functional equivalent of a Conquest 200 (last generation - aka CQ00).  The differences are:

 

CQ has a forged handle / TE-GT has a stamped handle

CQ has a forged drag star / TE-GT has a stamped star

CQ has clicking spool tension knob and drag / TE-GT has no clicks

CQ has a ported palm-side sideplate / TE-GT is plain/unported

 

I have both CTE-GTs and CQ00s and they perform and feel the same to me. These photos show the external differences (using 100-size reels):

Now - the Conquest being discussed in this thread is the Conquest 14.  CQ14 has all the latest gadgets/features: SVS Infinity Braking, X-Ship, Micro-Module Gears, etc.  The CQ 14 has a smaller sideplate and palms noticeably smaller than the equivalent size CQ00, it MIGHT (or might not) cast a bit farther due to the braking system, and will probably feel smoother to most folks due to the micro-module gears and X-ship.  All in all, just a nicer reel than the earlier generation.  Is CQ14 enough better than a CQ00 (or a CTE-GT) to warrant buying a new reel?  That's up to each person to decide.. :lol:

The new Conquest also has the S3D spool system, to further reduce the vibration of the spool, making it ridiculously smooth. You will not be disappointed buying the new Conquest.

What techniques do you guys use your 100's for?  I assume it would be comparable to a 200 size low pro but I'm not really sure.  I want to buy either a CQ or CT D but I don't know if I want a 100 or 200.

I am going to buy the 6.8 gear ratio 101 and pretty much use it for everything. Perfect IPT for my general fishing.

Cool thanks, that's kind of what I was thinking.  I am leaning toward a 100 as it won't be used for anything heavy, I just don't have anything to really compare it to.

I used my earlier gen CTE-GTs and CQ00s for nearly everything. I can even toss a lipless crank with them but at 23ipt you sometimes have to crank like crazy. I now have several round reels with 26 - 28ipt so they have taken over the lipless mission and the CTEs and CQs are used now mostly for cranking and bottom contact. Now that CQ14 will have a 30ipt option, all sorts of applications are possible...:thumbsup:

On 100 vs. 200, the 100 has adequate line capacity for most applications. I only go to a 200 with 17lb line. The CQ14 100 size also palms nicely...;)

Thanks for your input, 100 it is. :)

A little off topic here, but has anyone had experience with the 14 Conquest at the 1/4oz threshold? I am wondering how it will handle the Pop-X.

I haven't used my CQ14-100 for anything under about 3/8 oz. Under 3/8, I use a 50 size ;)
