G. Loomis GLX vs new Conquest Spin jig

Postby Rodster14 » Sun Oct 08, 2017 12:55 am

I have a GLX (newest one) 822S SYR rod that I love. It is perfect for Shakey heads. I also use it to throw 1/4 Megabass Popx poppers. I have caught a lot of 4 pound spots and one nearly 8 pound bass wth the Popx on this setup. However, I do lose some fish. Would I be better off with a new Loomis Conquest Spin Jig rod for these two techniques because it has a fast tip vs.the extra fast on the GLX? I fish with light braid with a leader and loosen my drag on the Topwater to help accommodate for the extra fast tip.

The new conquest spinning rods are pretty amazing. Super super lite and balanced. The 843S when compared to my 852 nrx is lighter and got lots of butt power. It’s out of this world and the grip is very comfortable, much nicer than glx or nrx handles.

Has anyone seen published rod weights for the Conquest models?

Of little help as I haven't seen them published across the board sir but do know the 902s is 3.6.
