Re: Ned Rod

I’ve thrown 5/16oz tube head plus plastic and didn’t feel over powered. Through 1/4oz jig with plastic and didn’t feel too bad! I’ve mainly thrown light stuff so unfortunately I’m not too sure. I’ve yet to feel underpowered with in my hands. I’ve been extremely pleased with power, sensitivity, and b...

Megabass launcher f5 vs f6

Would like to get a bit more Insite on these two sticks. I’m looking for my first deep cranking stick for this upcoming season and heard great things on this rod. Wondering if the new gen 2 (f6) is better overall vs the gen 1 (f5). I see it had a wider range of luring ratings but not sure if the f5 ...

It’s funny you don’t hear much about it and don’t know if I could go without it now! What reel do you have on yours?

Re: Ned Rod

For neds near cover i use my nrx 852s but don’t fish near too much cover so my expride 7’ light+ gets the win for 95% of my ned fishing. That rod has truly blown me away! What a versatile and powerful little rod, hooked a 5.5lber which pulled me into some thick weeds and this little rod fought back ...

Re: Deep cranking rod?

I used to use an OG Tatula 721MHRB-Glass and honestly it worked almost as well as the Zillion 801MHRB-G, even though it was considerably shorter and rated for an ounce less, so IMO it's good you're not too hung up on length. I purchased on a whim a zillion 7’2” medium heavy regular and was told it ...

Re: One Nice All-Purpose Spinning rod

All this talk about the 842 is making me want one lol. So far I really really like my 852s nrx. Not designed to be all purpose but so far haven’t found anything I don’t like throwing on it. Would love to grab a longer conquest like a 902s or a used nrx 902s if I stumble across one I would be all ov...

Re: What's your favorite NRX and why ?

Unfortunately I only have 2 nrx’s and 3 glx’s but from fishing the glx’s I could only imagine how nice they’d be in the nrx. I currently have an 853c and 852s. Between the two I love that 852s. I’ve thrown tubes, hair jigs, flukes, senko’s, drop shot, shakey head, larger ned rigs, spybaits, jerkbait...

Re: Expride 7' light spinning

I have a 7’ light plus as well. Excellent rod! Makes a nice ned rig rod, not bad open water ds rod, small hair jig, spybaits. Crazy light, sensitive, and so far has proven very useful, surprisingly powerful!

Re: R.I.P. NRX 872s

If you like the 6’10” then the nrx 822s dsr is there actual dropshot rod. I fish there glx version of it and love it. Has a great tip, soft yet powerful. Really keeps fish pinned. I also have an 852s and handled the 872s 100 times while going back and forth with the 852/872 and it would work for a d...

Re: Super tough bite! Help

I never tried a spoon, it didn’t even cross my mind! I did try a spy bait with some success in other areas of the lake but nothing too great. I’ve never had much success on a swimbaits. I throw kietechs, dark sleepers, and jackall rhythm wave. I’m wondering if I’m fishing them wrong, wrong sizes, wr...
