Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

They do not come with a rod sleeve.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I am a Megabass fan, but the only things I didn’t like about the Orochi xx was the weight (a little on the heavy side) and lack of a hook keeper. They look great and I can see myself trying one again if the new rods improve to become more like a Destroyer which is lighter.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Would the 842s (or maybe the 843s) be a good Shaky head/mojo rig rod compared to the Jig and Worm Rods from the GLX and NRX lineup?

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Steve,

I sounds like your on the water experience is good so far. Do you have any of the Conquest spinning rods?

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I know there are quite a few NRX users (like me) who are enticed by the thought of a rod that is better than the NRX. I bought the Conquest 843c for primarily fishing jigs and worms. The fast action tip is much softer and takes some getting used to coming from the extra fast tips on the NRX. The rod...

G. Loomis 843C MBR or 844c MBR for jigs

I have been used to fishing with an NRX 853c for jigs. I bought the new Conquest 843C for fishing mainly 3/8 jigs with some 1/2 ( and the occasional 1/4 or 5/16) jigs. I will also use it as my soft plastics rod. The MBR tip is softer than I’m accustomed to, but I’m sure I will get used to it. I boug...

Re: Which G. Loomis GLX Dropshot Rod

I have the 822 and I like it very much. The 820 is a little too whippy for my tastes. I don’t really use my drop shot rod for anything else. A drop shorvrig is always tied on that one.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I did order a 843c Conquest and have fished with it a little so far. It is taking some getting used to. I fished a jig for so long on my NRX, I was used to the way it fished. The taper on the Conquest is slower and softer than the NRX 853c I had before. The Conquest is sensitive, but it just feels d...

Re: Conquest rods shipping

The rod I sold was a NRX 853c. The rod I replaced it with was a Conquest 843c.

New Loomis GLX 853c

I sold my NRX 853C JWR that I had for for five years. I liked that rod, but was intrigued by the new Conquest. I have ordered one and I’m not sure that I like it. I could order the same NRX I had, but I am inclined to try a GLX 853c. I have the new GLX spinning rods and I like them very much. I have...

Re: Conquest rods shipping

Bantam,
I just got my 843c Conquest. In my first short trip out, it is very clear that the MBR with the fast tip is much softer than my NRX. It is clearly going to be more versatile, but am I going to like it as much for jig and worm fishing (primary use of this rod) as the NRX I sold.
