I have heard this new series is moving away from Recoil guides. I hope the blanks remain the same and they bring back the 901S and 902S!
Hoping they replace the blanks with something like the xray or torayca m40x along with torzites. Maybe they can be like st croix and utilitize ags haha

Not sure why they haven’t made CI4+ guides, like Daiwa AGS, to compliment their CI4+ reel seats.

Have been a big fan of the NRX blank. Strong/Durable/Sensitive blank. My biggest complaint has been the reel seat. It failed early on when they were first introduced, which they have fixed, but I never have cared for the skeleton type seat in general. I hope to see them use the Ci4 reel seat (on both NRX and Conquest) and work on balance of NRX moving forward.

Ci4+ is graphite powder reinforced plastic just like Daiwa's Zaion. Not something want guides made from. It's an excellent material for reel seats and drag stars though.

Ah, got it. For some reason I thought it was stranded through. Shiloomis should make their own carbon framed guides, then.

maybe they are spending time testing this one - cause clearly they didn't test the first run of NRX rods.

only 2 out of my 11 casting NRX rods didn't have a reel seat failure.

there isn't a chance in hell they tested the first run of rods.
1-2%

Spinning reel seats were terrible too. Best blanks with shoddy builds. I know they can do better. I own better builds of theirs in lower lines.

The blanks are already dang near perfect. They could just get like 3 relatively intelligent fishermen in a room to design a new handle and color scheme in a few hours. Voila, new model. Just improving the build quality would almost be enough to call it a new rod.

Totally agree with the build quality. I have been fairly happy with the GLX models I've owned. NRX...Returned several for all different build quality reasons. Even IMX models have been cleaner builds.
