Does anyone has any info on when the NRX/GLX gonna stop looking like a rod from 1994?
Monday. Already preordered one.

But I only remember a Light and Tough or Berkley Series One being a split grip at that time. I’ll be back after I flip my Far Beyond Driven by Pantera on vinyl.

Wow! You have FBD on vinyl?!! =D> One of the best metal albums of all time! Vulgar Display is still #1 for me, but only by a gnats hair.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

After giving it some thought I think that of all the models offered I’d like to know more on the 894 since I have the old green model And I’d like to see what improvements there are.


Pantera I think I heard of them but I can’t remember.
THIS is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

I disagree, I love the look of both myself.

28 models. Shipping begins next month. Since we’re a few hours from the launch and all.

Agreed, I’ve lipped too many smallmouth on the spins over the years to find fault. Love my Conquests as well.

I don't need a rear spoiler on my cars, so others can think I am going fast.
Give me a shortbed Chevy C10 with a subtle paint job any day.

I'm more interested in them improving the reels seat, durability, balance, and performance. Give me a classy design, with consistent build quality. I absolutely love my Nrxs, but there is room for improvement.

My all time favorite are the Destroyer X7s, the more I look and use them, the more I appreciate the thought that was put into designing them. Those screaming for aesthesics can go chew on a carrot stix. 🥕

"They're all gonna be priced in that $600 range."
That sucks. But such is the addiction
Hope they perform at the price point. I’ve not used the conquest line but I was told from a reliable source that they were developed with versatility in mind. I can honestly justify a JDM Daiwa ,
Shimano or evergreen rod because of the technology and the fact that they are hard to acquire and often in my experience they perform at a level above some domestic rods. In the thread about the st croix top tier rod I was stating how I wonder if the sales were dismal or not and now that I think about it I wonder about the g lommis conquest line as well.
The nrx became the benchmark and I don’t think that can be argued however I think that some people ride the bandwagon on any new ( GAME CHANGER ) rod that comes out and can’t readily articulate what their preferences are or what it is they find better in one rod over another despite the price point. I for one am GUILTY of that especially when I started this journey.
THIS is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Man I too love the X7 sticks Hard to find many new now. Not a fast n Furious looking stick but definitely performs like one.

Speaking of sleeper rods I wish evergreen Japan would bring some over

I'm surprised they didn't get rid of the Recoils. Those guides and the reel seat are the two biggest complaints that NRX rods have.
