Re: Nrx 852c jwr

When I first got my 852c it was my go to rod for 3/16 & 1/4oz shakyhead, my hookup to land ratio wasn’t the best. The rod is soft & if you’re using light line, you can’t really hit them fish hard as you need to considering you having to drive that hook thru the worm THEN in a fish mouth. I had a 853...

Re: Favorite Aldebaran Model

Jdm alde 30 mgl hg. Holds plenty of 12lb sniper, weightless fluke in the summer & vision 110 in the winter. Mounted on a 7’2m 1st gen poison adrena, it’s just fun to fish

Re: New Poison Adrena

Caught a 5.3 largie on the 7’3mh Adrena this wkend. Rod was purchased for spinnerbaits/chatterbaits but I’ve been having great success fishin 1/4 & 5/16 t-rigs on it. It’s not as powerful as the Nrx 873 that I normally used, but I like it a lot more. It’s just a FUN “versatile” rod. I read somewhere...

Re: St. Croix Legend Xtreme 2020

They are the best rods I've fished and I have had quite a few high end rods including the NRX line that's mostly MEH to me. The Steez Bottom Contact AGS lost to the AGS Xtreme in looks and performance. I thought I was the only one that felt that way about the NRXs. I was not impressed with the 853 ...

Re: Any 2020 Shimano reel leaks.....

There’s a comparison video out in English on YouTube between the 16 & new Metanium (FAOS fishing). Using same 7’3mh duckett rod & 17lb floro, casting distance using a rattle bait & small swim bait on a jig head was said to be minimal between the two, maybe a small edge to the 16 model but the new mo...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Which model would y’all recommend for spinnerbaits and chatter baits? I got the 7’3mh & have been more than happy with both those baits, paired with 7.4hg metanium mgl. I was using a nrx 854c & the Adrena is a much better rod for those techniques. Been having good hookups with 1/2 rattle baits late...

Re: Any 2020 Shimano reel leaks.....

Has anyone received this reel yet? It’s almost taking so long that I’ve actually lost interest in it , lol. I know digitika or Japan lure shop has no stock. “FISH HOOK TERRY” on YouTube has the only unboxing I’ve seen so far, can’t remember what site he said he ordered from

New Poison Adrena models listed on TW

I see they’ve added a 6’10m glass model, 7’2m, and a 7’4H action to the lineup. Release date is March 21. I have the previous gen 7’2m & it’s a great vision 110 rod for me in the winter, then in the summer a awesome weightless fluke rod. The 7’4H is the rod I’m most interested in. Not saying I have ...

Re: New 2020 Shimano Metanium

Brass gears, DEFINITELY getting a 7 gear ratio for my 7’3mh poison adrena for chatterbaits/spinnerbaits. Possibly a 8 gear ratio, depending on how that gun metal finish looks on a green 893 nrx

Re: NXR 873 vs 893

When I had an 893c and was throwing some 1/4 oz. stuff, I had an Aldebaran on it. I know it seems like a weird combo. Could have used a slightly longer handle, but it did the job nicely. I had a alde 50 on mine also for awhile. If that alde 50/mgl came in a XG model, that would be my #1 option for ...

Re: NXR 873 vs 893

I agree with you! Now, what reel do I put on the 893? Tackle tour way to go is get both rods. I fish similar weighs that you’re referring to & theres a need for both rods in my lineup. I started with a curado 70xg on my 893, then the Metanium mgl, now I have jdm steez sv tw xh. That rod is so light...

Re: Disappointed

Maybe I have reached a point of diminishing returns in that I have enough high end rods that there is not a wow factor still out there. I have and NRX and Daiwa Steez 76MML- and a Daiwa Steez 71MHXF-AGS which is not much compare to some of you collectors but these would be considered close to flag ...

Re: Steez Bottom Contact & Shimano Poison Adrena

Gary, What graphite is being used in this Steez AGS bottom contact? SVF or Toray 1100G? And what is the total weight of this rod? SVF Nanoplus X45. Approximately 160g or 5.6 oz. Just when I thought the poison Adrena was the rod of 2019, this steez comes out. I’m surprised at the weight of the rod, ...

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

If money wasn’t a issue, I’d look past dobyns. I went thru 2 generations of the extreme lineup b4 I decided to stop tryin to beat that dead horse. Sensitivity is my #1 thing I look in a jig rod and it just wasn’t there. My suggestions are nrx, zbone, steez ags or evening the new steez bottom contact...
