Have several GLX rods and always thought how much better could a NRX possibly be. Picked up a new 853C JWR and paired it with a new Metanuim and it far exceeded my expectations. Now I have to figure out how to come up with the dough to get a half dozen more is where I messed up.

Same. I bought an 852s 2 weeks ago and now it’s all I want to fish with.

I've heard that warranty replacement has been slow this past year. So has production of new rods as well thanks to covid. Not worried at all cause it aint like I dont have 2 dozen other rods to use in the mean time.

I sent a rod to shimano to be replaced under the warranty the day after Christmas and still haven't gotten yet.

I tried the conquest but still liked the NRX better. But to each their own.

I sent them a glx and 100 took around a month period. I would give them a call.

Good idea. I'll give them a call tomorrow morning. I can't imagine why it would take this long to replace it. Hopefully they have it.
