Re: Conquest 905C Question

Got the 905c in Friday. Paired it with the Shimano Bantam MGL XG, 50 lbs powerpro braid. Broke it in using smaller 3/8 oz pegged d bomb rigs on bed fish. Rod is very sensitive in my hands. No worry there. Lots of power, but nice tip. 3/8 oz rig was not difficult to pitch. Largest fish went 6.28 lbs....

Re: Conquest 905C Question

Just ordered my 905c . Pumped! The fast action mbr action appealed to me as a versitale heavy stick capable of most heavy duty applications i.e.; jigs, flipping, punching, a-rig, swimbaits, heavy T-rigs, etc. we shall see....

Hahaha! Yeah, been throwing a Ned rig with mine almost exclusively. Great rod for that technique.

Re: Edge inshore 6'6" light

Fished mine on Friday. Paired with the Concept Z reel, 30lbs white braid, and 10lbs fluorocarbon leader. Fantastic rod! Fished a 3inch ned rig and caught 15-20 bass up to 4lbs. Really love everything about this rod so far. Very sensitive. It will be a great inshore speckled trout rod too. Can’t wait...

I’ll look when I get home for the exact model number. It’s the 6’6” L inshore casting rod.

Re: Edge inshore 6'6" light

I got mine in today. Fantastic quality rod. Very light in hand. Initial load test appears to be a true x-fast action. Can't wait to get some time with this rod. Bought it mainly for sea trout and BFS bass work

I would love to hear more about the 843s sjr and how you like fishing it. Im thinks of pulling the trigger as a general "all around " bass spinning rod.

Do you own the 782c? Or sjr? I'm looking for more info on the 782c. What do they weigh?

Re: G. Loomis GLX vs new Conquest Spin jig

cndbasshunter wrote:The new conquest spinning rods are pretty amazing. Super super lite and balanced. The 843S when compared to my 852 nrx is lighter and got lots of butt power. It’s out of this world and the grip is very comfortable, much nicer than glx or nrx handles.
Tell us more. Do you own this rod now?

Sent you a PM. I have pics and GoPro video of the rod in action I shot last week. I can send to email or text. I have yet to get the right setup going to post here.
