Update
Shimano released a 200 size TRANX
Would be a great for small Bucktails or smaller spring time Baits

Shimano ConQuest 300 / 400 A
This a Different version, it will have a Non Disengaging Level Wind System, I like that
And a more old school VBS spool brake system, and a Clicker !!!!
I hear a 6 Gear not sure on a 5 Gear, I hope so !!!!
This will be a Ultimate Musky Reel, but I hear a $599.00 retail

Abu released a new Beast for bass, pike etc. I’ll have one for light muskies for sure, 30# of drag and plenty of line capacity for braid. Is a 400 I believe shot that reel with a couple of the Abu pros will review the raw video.
