Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Two weeks ago I purchased a very lightly used Conquest 843c from a board member. Playing with it in the house, there were very minor differences between it and the NRX 843c. Looking forward to fishing it to better compare. Today was the start of the sale at a local shop in Oshawa and I had two more...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I love my new 783C so far. Great handling rod. Would you consider the 783c (albeit shorter) to be a fit in between a Conquest 843c and 842c? It didn’t feel as stiff as the 843c when I felt it at the last fishing show I attended, yet not as whippy as the 842c. Was curious as to your opinion since yo...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I too was at the Toronto Fishing show and got to see the Conquest lineup. I was expecting the tip of the Conquest 843c to be softer than the NRX 843c given the feedback from people in this thread, however I found them to be quite similar. Turns out, the Conquest 783c was more what I was looking for ...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I want to start off by saying the conquest is bueatiful. The craftsmanship was perfect as far as I could tell the rod had no blemishes. I was surprised that the conquest did not come with a rod sleeve like my nrxs, being that the conquest is suppose to be the new flagship rod. Besides the rod sleev...

Re: NRX 893- just amazed the longer I own it

My 893c is one of my favourite rods as well. I moved the Met DC off of it late last fall and put an Aldebaran on it. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better. But don't get me wrong, my 843c MBR is nipping at its heels I'm guessing you're referring to the '15 alde? So what did you mainly like...

Re: NRX 842s

I would say if you needed a 2.5, go with the 843c MBR. Loads further back. The 842c MBR I would then consider to a 2.25 if compared to a 822s SYR being a 2. Geez I hope that makes sense.

Re: NRX 842

I tried my 842c for jerkbaits and found it had too much bend to it. The 843c works much better. I like the 842c for small sub surface wakebaits.

Re: NRX refresh ?

My only concern with the comments made by SteveSchmelzle is by adding a full handle grip you are you adding more weight and requiring Gloomis to have to finish the blank to add the rod specs because the full grip wont provide the split grip area thus dampening the sensitivity. Kistler has done a go...

Re: Nrx 823syr

Would anyone be able to confirm that going from an 822syr to and 823syr, would be very similar going from an 842c MBR to an 843c MBR? The specs seem quite similar.
