Smallest ring size / Shimano/Loomis Conquest 905 guides

Postby nolegsinmiami » Tue Apr 10, 2018 7:28 am

Does anyone know the guide ring size for the tip and smallest few guides on the Shimano/Loomis Conquest 905?

I have the Loomis NRX Umbrella rod which has the hybrid guide system and I had one of the titanium REC guides break while using a leader….the guides are too small on that rod to be using heavy braid with leader and I wanted to confirm the size on the Shimano/Loomis Conquest 905 before purchasing. Thanks

What knot are you using for your leader? There are many smaller and stronger connections that can be used. I will contact G.Loomis and see about getting the guide sizing for you. The NRX should be REC#6 for the smallest guide sizes, maybe a 7.
