    Shimano to offer reel clinics, showcase new Conquest reels at Minnesota Muskie Expo

    This just in ...


    LADSON, S.C. — Shimano will again assist anglers keep their reels in top-performing condition, and will also showcase the upgraded Calcutta Conquest 300 and 400 size reels during this weekend’s Minnesota Muskie Expo,, March 8-10, at Concordia University in St. Paul.

    In what has become a tradition at the St. Paul show, Shimano technicians will offer ‘clean & lube’ service throughout the day on Friday and Saturday. Simply stop by the booth with any Shimano reel you own. Your reel will be serviced on the spot where you can watch and learn basic maintenance tips, or while you out visiting other exhibits and seminars.

    On the muskie tackle side, Shimano continues to address the demanding needs of casting and retrieving big bucktails, jerkbaits and smaller glide baits with the new Calcutta Conquest 300 and 400 reels. A thorough upgrade to this benchmark round reel series, the new reels are highlighted by 6.2:1 HG gear ratios, an eight-pin Variable Brake System (VBS), and a synchronized levelwind so the braid (or mono) builds up level on both sides of the spool – enhancing both retrieve performance and casting distance. Designed for all-day fishing comfort, they feature Shimano’s ‘S Compact Body Design’ and MicroModule gear system with an increased number of smaller gear teeth on the pinion and drive gear for added smoothness. Both the 300 and 400 size reels are offered in either right- and left-hand retrieve, and reel in 33 inches of line crank.
