    Micro Module Gear
    The Micro Module Gear System creates a smooth retrieve. The new gear set makes use of smaller teeth and more of them. This means that there are more contact points between the drive gear and pinion gear. The result is a more efficient gear train with less gear ''feel''.

    SVS Infinity
    Shimano's newest innovation in brake system technology, SVS Infinity provides easy-to-manage, consistent spool control and brake force. With brake weights that use inner friction against the raceway during the cast, SVS Infinity controls spool speed for precision casting, especially when using lighter lures. The external adjustment knob provides for quick, precise adjustments for either the conditions or when you switch baits.

    X-Ship provides improved gear durability. By supporting the pinion gear on both ends with bearings, the pinion gear maintains precise alignment with the drive gear. This means the gears will stay in the same position under the heaviest loads. The added benefit is that friction between the spool shaft and gear are eliminated. This will enhance the casting performance of the reel with lighter lures, and allow for longer casts.

    Shimano Stable Spool Design (S3D)
    Shimano's S3D technology leads to significantly reduced spool vibration. By designing a balanced and uniform thin wall aluminum constructed spool, S3D creates an incredibly smooth feeling when casting and retrieving lures.

    Considering this reel for calico bass on Cedros island. Throwing 3/4 to 1.5 ounce heads with swimbaits. Is this a good choice to cast all day and fight tough fish? Plan to use 50 lb braid with a short mono top shot.
    1 Answer
    The Conquest 300 sounds like a good fit for your application based on the fact that you are looking to use 50# braid. With lighter line you would be able to step down in size to the 200, but if 50# braid is definitely the way you want to go, go with the 300.
