Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I got to handle these rods at a sport show over the weekend, I was very impressed. I am glad I did because now I know that I should get the 4 power instead of the 3 power, the rods are very light

Re: Need some help with G loomis What is your?

Man, I love these type of threads.

G Loomis NRX 916C UBR – Punching, Frogs, Swimbaits, and A-Rigs. The i...

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

I have both, imho the steez wins for overall strength and versatility. The aldebaran is an awesome reel, super smooth and unbelievably light, but it is a bit "finessey"..I'd get both..

Re: Need some help with G loomis What is your?

Yes, 665 almost evil! One of the Greatest MW paintball teams ever! Just for that username I will give my advice on G-loomis rods for Chicago land bass fishing. 1 the NRX 822dsr, drop shotting is Key for catching the bass in Chicago, no matter what lake, this rod always comes with. 2 Nrx 893, Jigs an...

Combine the 2 choices and get a Steez Racing Design. Absolutely sick looking rods.


I like the way you think!

Re: Conquest rod weights?

Not much difference in weight vs. NRX. 842c NRX=106g, 842c Conquest=102g. 843c NRX=110g, 843c Conquest=111g. I'll have to weigh my Conquests when I can get to a good scale since they are now split grip like NRX. That extra cork probably added at least 7g. you modded them to be split grip? dude, you...

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

No nrx 893? That is a must have.. the nrx line is still top dog in my opinion.
There are some great contenders out there, poison glorious/ultima,steez ags, luxxe oltre, kaleido.. buy them all, that's what I did

Re: Anyone give an updated comparison GLX893 vs NRX 893

NRX 893 is a great jig rod, but to me 1/4 oz is too light for it.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Does the MBR taper make them more parabolic.. Are these supposed to be moving bait rods? No, they are a classic "Mag Bass" taper that Loomis has been using for years. The rods are all considered a "fast" taper but they aren't technique specific like many other lines of Loomis ro...
