Re: What line for NRX 852c?

Using it with Ned rids and braid may lead to some lost fish. It is a really nice rod but, I feel a Ned rig plus braid on this rod may not have enough give, unless using bigger hooks. A 10lb FC will treat you well. You can still get a hookset into the jigs and ned rigs. The jerkbaits will do fine as...

What line for NRX 852c?

Hi all, just made the purchase of my first NRX. A 852c. I am super excited. I will be pairing the rod with a Abu Garcia MGEXTREME 2. I am wondering what line you would be recommending to use? The techniques that I will be using are: 1. Ned Rig 2. Worms and 1/8 - 1-4 oz Jigs 3. Jerkbaits I was thinki...

Re: Help me choose my first NRX please! :)

Yep,

handled both the 852 and the 853. The 852 will be my first NRX. It is quite a bit softer than the 853 (which is too close to my ZBONE).

Just need to shop a bit around and the NRX will be mine!

Thanks all for the guidance.

Running the stock spool and 16# fluro. Works great for me with lures 1/2 - 2oz

Re: Help me choose my first NRX please! :)

I also would like the rod to work in combination with my 2018 ZBONE Medium - Heavy, 7'6 (which is rated for 1/4 - 1oz lures). I am throwing 3/8- 5/8 oz Jigs and paddle tail swimbaits on it. How do you like the Zbone? Have you considered the 873c, I think that model has quite the following on this f...

Thanks for your reply!

So, what would the 852c be good for, if not for Texas rigs and Jigs?

Ned rig (anything with an exposed hook) and Jerks?

Help me choose my first NRX please! :)

Hi all, I have decided to buy my first NRX and need a bit help deciding which one to go with.

NRX candidates are: * 802C JWR * 803C JWR * 852C JWR * 853C JWR I also would li...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

On the water today for the first time with the reel (for around 3h). This is a initial review, I will give additional feedback after a couple of months of fishing. I have spooled the reel with 16 # fluro FX Sniper. The reel is mounted on the Daiwa Steez SVF-XBD Frog Rod that I use for heavy jigs and...

Re: Kistler Helium3 vs Megabass Orochi vs St Croix LTB

I would suggest a Megbass Orochi Spinnerbait Special or the Helium 3.

I have both. The Megabass is just sweet, sensitive rod. The Helium is as good as the Megbass just the craftsmanship is not as good as the Megabass

Re: What rods compare to a NRX 852c ?

I had the 852c for years. It is great for jerkbaits and shakyheads. I didnt do any deep water bottom contact with mine but, I never had a problem with hooksets. It is a great all around medium casting rod. It can throw weightless worms, wakey rigs, jerkbaits, topwaters...pretty much anything 1/2oz ...

Re: What rods compare to a NRX 852c ?

Quality wise, Dobyns HP 702 would match up - it is made in China though. Dobyns will balance better, but the NRX will be more sensitive and slightly lighter. Haven't tried the Xtasy but early reports are good. I've heard/read great things about the Z-Bone line, but refuse to give Trey any more of m...
