Re: Zillion TW HD

ive got one

its a big reel, to big for me for jig fishing

i really like the elite p/f reel same handle but fits better in your hand, brass gears, or a coastal reel if you want more line capacity

i got it for swimbaits on 8ft rod

Ask away

I am just learning this line of rods.

Gary over at TackleTrap has been most helpful as well

The 72 mh round bend is another standout

Absolute joy to fish

Re: NRX 873cc

Goldrod, yeah i can comment on all of them. like i said i had the 873 nrx, it was incredibly light and oh so super sensitive. Without a doubt the NRx rods are some of the most sensitive rods on the market, but to me i guess what drove me away was what i said the balance, fit and finish. i feel for t...

Re: NRX 873cc

I had one

Didn’t blow my skirt up

Reel seat didn’t match the cork had to sand it down to match. I can wrap a rod better than the one I had

For a bottom contact rod get the steez Ags 7’5”

More powerful but balance is better and better fit n finish and pretty much just as versatile

Re: NXR 873 vs 893

It’s a great rod and always worth considering But might be a touch too powerful for what you want

Re: NXR 873 vs 893

So it’s a bit more powerful than a 873

But the new steez Ags bottom contact is a fabulous rod and worth a look

Better balance to me

Great pitching and bottom contact rod As the name says

Re: Steez Bottom Contact & Shimano Poison Adrena

yes this for sure would be an up-graded version of the 873 but more powerful

its better balanced, better fit and finish

i would bet it replaces your 894 :big grin:

Re: Megabass Destroyer Daemos

I would take a different rod I wouldn’t grab my Daemos to fish “near” An inlet or with 1oz weight plus soft plastic. Even 3/4 oz. to me it’s not can it handle the weight of the lure but where are you fishing and what’s swimming down there. Slot sized fish you are fine but what it something bigger bi...
