Re: Erie smallie party

Those are some nice fish for sure, but the ones with the dark bars on their head are really cool.

Re: What's your favorite NRX and why ?

893c is the best bottom contact rod on the planet in my opinion. I can feel when fish are just swimming by or nosing around. Have set the hook several times and snagged the fish. 893c is SPECIAL & I have hooked plenty of bass outside the mouth. I have the green model & running 12lb pline tactical. ...

Shimano driver for small screws.

Hi Guys, I just started to service my own Shimano reels. What are you guys using to remove the small phillips screw near the thumb bar on a Chronarch MGL. It is a very small phillips headed screw and I cant find a driver to fit it well. Thanks.

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

I picked up a couple over the winter so far. I got a Shimano Zodias 175xh casting rod on sale for heavy slop froggin. Also just picked up a new NRX854 for under $300 from my local Cabelas/BPS on clearance. It will feel right at home with my NRX893,873, and 894.

Re: What rod caught you the most fish in 2018?

Between my GLX845 cbr and NRX893. Probably better numbers on the crankbait rod, but better quality on the NRX with a beaver and a 1/4 tungsten weight. BUT I sure love pitchin a jig to cover with my NRX894.

Re: 2019 wishes

My wish from 2014 to 2019. Daiwa Baby Z :lol: This. A $300 range Daiwa, a miniature Z2020 would compete well with the Bantam MGL. I'd also like to see a SV105 replacement with a shallow spool. On the Shimano side, a Curado K70 or Curado 70MGL would be awesome. I like the Aldebaran but worry about t...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

They're finally, after hundreds of years, making the Z1016. Because that's not enough, they're reintroducing the beloved TDZ, which will be just a bit below the Steez price. But wait, that's not enough. They're also reintroducing the pixys with an ultra shallow SV spools. nvm we're not getting anyt...

Re: I believe she is the "one"

Man I could have saved you a lot of money and time. But that is half the fun I guess. That NRX894 is one of my favorite sticks. I use mine mostly for jigs, but it will work for all kinds of bottom contact baits.

Re: NRX 852C how does it translate to JDM rods?

First two numbers are total length in inches and the third number is power. I power being light, 2power medium and 3 med heavy and 4 heavy. Nrx rods seem to be a bit on the light side of most power rating systems. I dont have an 852, but do have a 893, 873, 894, and a 852s spinning rod. All rods are...

Re: Core 51Mg7 Handle Upgrade

i tried some of those handles (Chronarch/Metanium) but ended up with straight ones on my Core and Alde mgs. for some reason it rubbed the drag but i have heard others having success! if you decide to drop a little more into it that reel, check out the 7.7:1 brass gears if you havent already. http:/...

Wow I hope they are good. Price seems kinda high. I have two and think I paid less that $200 for them.

Re: Loomis 853/854 vs 893/894

I use my 893NRX for t-rigs with a 1/4 or 5/16 weight, mostly with a beaver. I always have a 3/8 or 1/2 jig tied on my 894NRX. Both work great in their application. Dont have a 853NRX or 854NRX, have a few glx rods to fill these spots. Do have a 873NRX and would say I like it a lot also. It would al...
