I bought a NRX 852 s which I love but the very tip of it broke. I want to get another in NRXbut they’re almost impossible to find. I also thought about moving to a con quest but I didn’t know how that compared to an NRX. It doesn’t have to be in an Shimano just wondered y’all thought.

Nothing better than a Loomis. If you can afford it I’d upgrade

Didn’t you just buy it? Maybe it’s under warranty. How did you break it?

Have you checked with Fun N Sun in Hurst or Southwestern Parts in Dallas??

What are you trying to say in the last sentence of your post?

Get online and print the warranty form out and send the rod to Gloomis. Their warranty Dept is great.

Sorry I should have explained better. I bought one at Scheels and it broke while fishing. Scheels said they would return my money bc they can't get another one for a long time. So I trying to decide between. Waiting to buy an NRX? Upgrade to conquest? Try a different brand. I loved that NRX.

Really confused. If I broke a rod after a week that cost $300 plus I would really re-evaluate.

Okay let me explain again. I bought a NRX from Scheels. They are going to refund my money bc they said there is no way they can get me another one anytime soon. So I am trying to decide should just wait for who who's how long to get another NRX or should I buy a different rod? if I did buy a different rod I would want something in that category of sensitivity and lightness.

They will charge you to fix/replace it unless it was a manufacturing defect. I can't remember the fee but it's 100-150 bucks. Better than a new rod, but not cheap. You have to pay the shipping as well. Conquests are great.

Well I broke one in December and just got the replacement 3 weeks ago. There is defiantly a shortage.

I'd give it back to them and find one somewhere, also just to note, the Conquest is a different profile than NRX.

Well if you figure he paid $550 for the NRX and then you add another 100-150 for a replacement, you have now spent right at or more than the cost of a Conquest and since he is getting a refund then he could upgrade to the Conquest for the same amount as a replacement NRX.
