edited June 18 in Reels
I really love using my conquest 200HG with upgraded handle for jigging & casting.
but always facing 1 problem,capacity...
PE2.5-3.5 it only fits about 110-160meter max.
& only take 1 burst on my braided line i have to ch another reel or go home.
is there anyone here know where can i get a deeper spool for calcutta conquest 200?

    ​For boat fishing, I recommend against japanese line, am using suffix 20bl, which is pe 1, and have decent hook up. The only time line burst is when kena sanko.

    ​my consideration for line poundage always included sangkut , hahaha.
    braid : shock leader   1 : 1.3-1.6
    example braid=20lb shockleader will be 26-32lb which i will use 30lb
    connect with FG knot & shockleader will use whatever knot to connect to tenya,jig,lure,apollo,etc
    FG - keeps about 80-97% strength of the line
    whatever knot - keeps about 40-70% strenght of the line
    90% will burst on the shockleader,otherwise waste time tying leader.

    Power Pro Maxcuatro. 25% thinner.

    I just got this, haven't tried. I dunno it if fits your bill but I just spooled it into my reel and go an extra 100m+ for a similar poundage. Using for my up coming trips. I didn't see it at any local tackle shops so I bought it online from ebay. BTW using this for bottom and jigging.

    not much diff, for slow jig i prefer max 40lb.
    Maxcuatro 40lb on CQ200 will be less then 150m, 130m maybe. if 30lb about 170m-180m.
    now i bought another jigging reel for spare or deeper water. nth is perfect, hahaha.
