The conquest 842S is an amazing rod. Go with that.

How does the Conquest 842S compare to the NRX852S?
Slower. I don’t like the 852s or c. They’re XF action makes the rest of the rod a broom handle, imo

Re: Nrx/conquest finesse rod

I have both the Conquest 842s and 842c. LOVE both of these. Use the spinning for weightless senkos, Ned rigs and will, but don’t like it, drop shot. The casting is used for jerkbaits, tubes, light Texas rigs and small crank baits. The 842s has slightly more power than an NRX 822 syr. Given the NRX 8...

On topic, NRX MBR 843 imo. It does just about everything.
Couldn’t agree more! My favourite rod!

Re: ICAST 2019

I can't be the only one who dislikes the sound of the DC right? Even if it helps with casting, the very synthetic/artificial sound of it kind of turns me off. Just not the kind of sound I want to hear when I'm out in nature throwing in a line. Can’t stand the DC whine. Sold all my DC reels within w...

Re: ICAST 2019

I love Shimano stuff but I hate DC reels. Nothing like a screaming reel to ruin a peaceful morning on the lake. I better start stocking up before everything has DC integrated

Re: Spinning reel knob replacement

I hated the foam knob on my Stradic so I swapped it out with a left handed Shimano Septone knob, part number BNT4240. End cap part number is BNT4150. You’ll have to do some digging for the part number if you’re a righty.

Re: What’s your 2019 Rod to have?

Since I purged all my NRXs to buy Conquests, I miss a couple. Sold my CNQ843c, so that will be replaced by a NRX 843c MBR, and might buy a 893c JWR...again. I should never have gotten rid of those two.

Unknown. But my other two Conquests which were tightened similarly didn’t crack.

Two weeks after dropping them off for warranty, replacements showed up. Thanks Shimano/GLoomis!

Re: CNQ842c What are you using it for?

Think of the CNQ842c as an NRX 842.5c. More backbone for sure. Great for Jerkbaits. So very happy with this rod. I also use this for small cranks.

It is slightly heavier than the Conquest 842s. I throw weightless senkos with this rod, and again, fantastic.
