I have an Gen 2 XX DSR paired with a Steez SV TW HS as my dedicated swimjig rod. 90% of my swimjig chucking is with a 3/8 oz jig and a paddletail. If I want to chuck a 1/2 oz jig, I tie it onto a Gen 1 XX TV with an SV103 XS.
Simply for poppers but the 803c may not work for it. All in all I just needed something to justify keeping the reel. I used my NRX 803c for poppers.....until I got an NRX 802c and that's all I use for poppers now. The tip is very fast and it doesn't take much to move a popper. 90% of my popper fish...

I did this and then woke up a year later with a full beard, a room full of rods and reels, and a lot less money in the bank.
I have a P model and I use it pretty much exclusively to bomb spybaits. I changed the spool to an RCS 1012 SV and I can cast my spybait every bit as far with my GLX 852c as my buddy casting the same thing with a GLX 852s and a Sustain 2500. To be honest at first I couldn't really tell the difference...
I use a Tatula CT for frogs. More or less the same size as the Tatula SV but it's a non-SV spool that holds more line than an SV spool. I use 50# and #65 Sufix as well. You can probably get two of them for your $200 price range.

I have a Ballistic EX that has that gap when the handle is on the right side but there's no gap when the handle is on the left side. I have the handle on the right side and it doesn't seem to have any effect on the reel's performance but it is kind of weird.

In the XX line, I've used the 7 ft F4.5 Flatside Special on the big East Texas reservoirs for everything you mentioned but spinnerbaits. I think the FSS is a better treble hook rod than it is a single hook rod. The F5 EMTF would also work but at 7'5" it's a little bigger than what you specified...

I will throw both swimjigs and frogs on my F6 XX Tour Versatile when I'm in someone else's boat and don't have the entire arsenal with me. It does an OK job with both but when I'm in my boat I use a Gen 1 F5 XX Diablo Spec-R for swimjigs and a Gen 1 F7 XX Perfect Pitch for frogs. I can't speak for t...
Thanks gentleman! Great Info! Anyone throw a finesse jig, 1/8-3/16oz jigs or flukes? Up here in Canada I use my GLX 852C with a Zillion SV TW P (5.5:1 ratio) exclusively for spybaits (Duo 90). When I head to Texas in the winter, I use it for shakeyheads with a Tat SV HS (7.3:1 ratio) There a reason...

Looking for a rod to use as a senko rod, small paddletails, flukes, double down for minor use on shaky head and maybe dropshot. Think I’d prefer a bit of a shorter rod but still open to opinions. Was looking at the 852c or 853c I've used my GLX 852c for all of those applications except for dropshot...

Have you tried chucking a Duo 90 or 80 GFix spybait with this combo? I've had a Hein on my radar for a while now as a dedicated spybait rod that I would pair up with an SV105 P or a Zillion SV TW P with a 1012 spool. I like an XF tip for spybaiting and I'm currently using a GLX 852C JWR but I think ...
