Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

I have both the 852s too. Fits my needs for light ned rigs and 1/16-1/8 drop shot. 1/4 and up i use the nrx872s for drop shotting. NRX852S and CQ842S i use mostly for 1/4 and up. Awesome! What I’m looking for is to add a universal spinning set up, I have the glx 822 dsr which I haven’t fished yet f...

Re: Help with last higher end spinning set up!

Seems to be a pretty popular rod! I have got to get my hands on one. Is 7’6 the most universal option or just your favorite. Cause it seems a bit long if you aren’t going more deep water?

Re: Help with last higher end spinning set up!

Thank you. The steez rods are hard to find local for me so they might be out. Best I can find in the daiwa line up is the tatula elite series. I use to fish a zillion rod and loved it but sold it off to a buddy as I just didn’t need it. I’m headed north in the next week and maybe I can get my hands ...

Help with last higher end spinning set up!

Hey everyone, I’ve been roaming around trying to find what needs to be upgraded this season or added to the aresenal and have locked down just 2 as everything else is new as of last season. First one will be an nrx 893c paired with either chronarch mgl or metanium mgl. Second is to upgrade my spinni...

Re: NRX 852c

Not an nrx but I fish a glx 852c and spend a significant amount of time last year trying to figure out what it will be used for and where it fits in. I found it super soft but surprised with the amount of power it had. Being so soft I found it a little hard to drive a t-rigged hook into a fish (weig...

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....
