The new calcutta conquests have got to be one of the smoothest and best looking reels ever made. That being said, I want to know if I would have any use for this reel. I don't fish bass very often, so for it to be worth the money, I would need to be able to use the 400 for light offshore applications such as kelp paddy dorado, yellows and schoolie size yellowfintuna. (If it only had a clicker like the previous models, I would love to use it for seabass as well.) Unfortunately, I have already read some reviews that the reel has not held up well when catching fish such as a 15 pound jack crevalle. Specifically, guys complain about the micro gearing not being able to handle the stress of repeated runs from a modest sized fish (i.e. the small gearing wearing down pretty fast). I am really hoping someone else can chime in with a different experience. What can the new Conquest 400 really handle? Can it be more than just a bass reel?
