Re: Megabass rods

I'm still a MB fan but not diehard like I once was. I still have around 2 dozen of them which is almost 2/3 of what I originally had. Out of all of the rods over the years I've only broken 3. I broke 2) Phase 3 Nautilus' and 1) X7 Destruction. Both the Nautilus broke on fish. One on a hookset on an...

Re: What's your favorite NRX and why ?

873c but its the only nrx i have. I've fished the 894 and its nice and made me have to have a nrx but the 873 fits me better. I have a glx 893 and i feel the nrx 873 blows it away. I alos have a conquest 903 that i like but still prefer the 873

Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

You really gotta lock it down on the standard SLX too... the minimum drag is actually so little that sometimes i...
