I mostly want to know how the NRX, Zbone, and the Poison Adrena compare in sensitivity. I am not concerned about which is the best value for the money. Which of the three is the best overall..... excluding price leave that part out, I just want to know about sensitivity and way the rods feel compared to each other.

Good morning!
I own both, a NRX and the the new 2020 Z-Bone. Both similar specs. Both were purchased to decide on which one is the most sensitive, to me, for bottom contact baits.
In my opinion, the Z-Bone is more comfortable because of the reel seat used, but, it is not even in the same class as the NRX in terms of sensitivity (at least in my hands).
The build quality on the Z-Bone is fantastic, so no issues there at all, just not as sensitive. The Z-Bone does feel more tip heavy to me than the NRX and both were paired with the same reel and fished for a couple of weeks side by side with the same baits.
Not sure that info helps you much, but I believe that the NRX is the way to go, if $ is not an option and you truly want the most sensitive of the 2.
Have a great day!

I wonder how the NRX compares to the new Conquest and what the differences are? Will it replace the NRX or just another high end rod?

I have both the NRX and the Conquest. Both are incredible, I always find myself reaching for the Conquest though if the two are laying side by side.

That is what I wanted to know. Thanks

I find that I prefer my NRXs, Dobyns Xtasy and Daiwa Steez SVF Rods over the others. I don’t own a Z Bone or Poison Adrena but I’ve purchased three more Xtasy Rods recently. I have a gimp shoulder and these three provide the power and sensitivity which I prefer at the end of the day.

They all set you back monetarily but worth it IMO.

Landed a 14lb flat head last week. The hit was subtle in that the beast must have sucked it in and then just sat there. I set the hook and felt him pull away. Bent my rod almost in half as it lumbered around the front of the boat. This little rodeo more than sold me on the sensitivity and strength of my 7'1" med-hvy NRX.

NRX, nothing compares in sensitivity. I have 3 JWR's. Am going to be putting them up for sale on BBC pretty quick. Have decided I don't like them. I don't like the way they load, I lose too many fish. Maybe it's my technique or bad habits but I get more fish in the boat with my Shimano Crucial's.
