Anything on par with an NRX will be something to marvel at.

I would like to see a new NRX but I think we areally jus going ton see this Conquest. 10% lighter than what, an NRX but stronger with the spiral wrap and full grip? If so they did the impossible. I myself like split grips. I have 15 NRX rods almost all green as I hate the blue. Wish they would take the NRX change its color and go full Torzite guides. I will definitely be trying the Conquest and really look forward to the spinning rod. Any pics available besides the one on Bassmaster?

I wonder if they'll be produced by G.Loomis in WA.
Shimano rods that are made in USA?
