Re: Megabass F4-69RSDti Orochi Evolution

I had the 2015 and it was a great DR rod. However, I like the NRX 822 DSR much more and sold the Megabass. I felt like the sensitivity was better on the NRX and the fear of breaking the Megabass scared me a bit. With the Loomis it is still made and can be replaced if broken.

Re: Poison Adrena vs Megabass

I have not used either, but have the 6'11" Medium. To me it's closer to a MH and think it would be great for spinnerbaits. I've used it for chatterbaits and like it as well as for rattle baits. Very versatile rod IMO.

Re: EVA handles ... yea or nay ?

Like them both, just depends on the rod.

I've been all over the board when it comes to buying rods.

Re: Nrx or Megabass for lighter stuff??

I feel like the 822 DSR is very balanced and super sensitive.

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

Those new rods look sick! I'm with you about the new Destroyers, not that impressed with the baitcasters. Do love the Addermine though. Alright ladies and gents. These must be them. I’m digging the handle nut personally. And the carbon grip models gave me a bit of a megab...r. Even the handles are n...

Re: Conquest 904 vs. 905

I have both rods. The 904 is a great 1/2 ounce jig rod and great for pitching plastics as well.

Re: Nrx or Megabass for lighter stuff??

I use both the NRX 822 DSR and the Destroyer Addermine. I like both of them. I feel like the NRX with a 2500 CI4 Stradic balances very well and feels lighter than the Addermine with the same reel. The more I use the NRX, the more I like it. In fact I picked up a 902 NRX recently as well. The Addermi...

Re: Conquest 905C balance

I use a Curado 300 on mine when it is used for A rigs and the balance is fine.

Re: Daiwa Steez Rods

I've been on the fence about either the Steez 7'6" MML spinning rod or waiting for the NRX 901 and 902 to come out in the near future or possibly the Conquest 902. I've read and heard from a variety of folks about the guides on the Daiwas breaking. I do like the fact the Steez will cover what both t...
