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 starti...

Re: Glx or Legend Elite

Thank you. I ended up stumbling across a glx 822 dsr at a great price and going to look at it tomorrow with expectations of purchasing the rod! Maybe I’ll have to grab a legend elite for another purpose. Tubes, niko rigs maybe. Something a little longer?

Re: Glx or Legend Elite

Glx or Legend Elite

I think I’ve narrowed it down to either the glx 822 drop shot rod or the st. Croix legend elite es610mlxf (6’10” medium light extra fast). Wondering which is more sensitive?

Re: Mid to high end drop shot rod?

Can’t go wrong with GLX or NRX if you want super sensitivity , for the money I like the Orochi XX whipsnake or the Expride spinning series. Thank very much! Is there a model in the glx/nrx you recommend? I’m leaning more towards loomis but can’t seem to stop thinking about trying an Expride either....
