Reel for Conquest 905


Recommended Posts

If using it for bottom contact, you should choose a reel that palms well for you.  I have a 13 concept z on my Poison Glorious XH.  The reel is small/palms well and can hold a good amount of heavy line.  Small framed reels allow me to get all my fingers in front of the trigger for more power and control.

Braid you get by with 200 size reels, FC/Mono 300 size reels.

You like Shimano and they have a good selection of ridged frame reels you need with XH 905 MBR.

Daiwa on a Shimano rod? Blasphemy! I just got a Conquest 905 and I plan to pair it with a new 22 Bantam. Those things are tanks and are smooth casters. Super versatile too. I’ll report back after time on the water. They also make a Monster Gear version of the Antares DC. I didn’t go there, but it’s an option.

A Calcutta Conquest 200 would do the job. That is a big rod designed for medium swimbaits but I'm sure it could be used for other big baits.

What reel did you end up going with for your conquest 905?

 

I was hesitating between then Antares and the Calcutta conquest. Ultimately went with the calcuta conquest 200 in 7.5:1 gear ratio. Wanted Conquest/Conquest and enjoy it - fun to hold, observe and feel, let alone fish.

 

I use it for Huddlestons and deep heavy jigs. With 50lb braid it can handle big fish in purgatory cover.
