The 842s would be, the 843s is a bit to heavy IMO.

Are these using the same blanks for casting and spinning like the NRX rods?

If they are, the 843 would be too much for shakey heads. I haven't handled the 842 but, that should do fine.

Do the Conquest rods come with rod sleeves like the NRXs?

Got to handle a few of the Conquests yesterday, I now kinda want to sell my new-ish GLX 783MBR for the same spec Conquest. It is amazing how such a trivial difference in butt length can change the feel of a rod. In the end I don't think it is enough of a difference for how much money I would lose on the deal, but that Conquest feels like holding air.

I'm fishing the 902s, 903c, 904c, and 905c now. I'll be putting in a lot more time over the winter and spring with them, but overall, I'm very impressed with this entire series!!

Do these still have the lifetime warranty or the one time exchange card service?

They have the same warranty as any other Loomis rod as stated on their website.
