Re: What rods compare to a NRX 852c ?

I second that about the zbone, that’s the only other line that I’ve liked almost as much as my nrx rods. I was using the 852c for shaky heads but wasn’t having the greatest hookup ratio. It’s a very soft rod. I ended up gettin a 893 and have a better hookup ratio. I fish 3/16 to 5/16 shakyheads on i...

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

What did you throw on your 893c that made it so successful! I did well on a few rods that’s I’m not sure if I can narrow it down. One of them was definately my imx pro 845 cbr, another was my imx pro 884 twfr! Unfortunately my glx 894c and glx 852c didn’t come till late in the season as I was start...

What rod caught you the most fish in 2018?

Curious to hear anyone’s answer on this, maybe there’s a popular rod out there that I need to add to my collection. For me it was the NRX 893 & I think it caught more fish than all my other rods combined. Mine had a metanium mgl xg on it

Re: Metanium DC thoughts?

I purchased this reel last year at japan lure shop, fished it maybe 6 months and sold it. At the end of the day/whine, it’s just another reel. My metanium mgl casted farther with heavy baits & had way better control with lighter baits

Re: What to add to the arsenal?

Nrx 893 w/o a doubt, pretty sure it’ll become your favorite rod. That’s what happened to me once I got that model & I think I had 3 other nrx rods at the time

Re: Aldebaran mgl vs. non mgl

Thank you for the reply. I should add that this will be a pitching reel for baits primarily in the 3/8-1/2oz range. Line capacity should be no issue as a pitching reel. Where I think the alde shines though as a finesse casting reel. Maybe 1/8-1/4oz reel for pitching finesse baits. For me, for those...

Re: Aldebaran mgl vs. non mgl

I was worried about line capacity also. Looking at both spools the mgl is noticeably shallow but the line capacity is 10 yds max difference. I run 10lb p line tactical and no issues. It throws a weightless fluke pretty far, more so than the '15 alde. The upgrade is worth it

Re: Reel to pair with NRX 853c

I have either metanium mgls or aldebaran mgls on my nrx rods. Tend to use the metaniums for my longer rods and the alde mgls for the shorter ones. The bad part about the alde, if you're using it for bottom contact, it doesn't come in a xg model. The upside to that, that light combo will spoil you

Re: Champion Extreme 745HP

Well I had the 1st champion extreme 742 then got the 742 hp extreme, not much better in sensitivity. I had a 1st gen extreme 745 & sold it, my buddy said his $150 duckett was just as good, then he sold it. If you're in that $300+ zone and worried bout sensitivity, just save and get a 894c nrx f...

Re: G Loomis nrx

893, imo best senko rod on the market. I like a stiffer rod for 3/8oz jigs, but most people are happy with the 893 for 3/8 jigs. The 893 is my go to senko rod, light texas rig rod and shakyhead rod. If I would have 2 nrx rods the same, it'd be the 893

Re: NRX 854

I'm curious about the power of the NRX 854. I have a 7ft MH LE. The lure rating is higher than the H power Loomis. Which one has more power? The 854 would be perfect for those weights. Personally I wouldn't use my 893 for 3/8oz jigs. The occasional 1/2oz jig for the 854 would be fine. I actually pr...
