Re: St. Croix Legend Elite

...I also have 3 sc5 custom spinning rods one 76ml and 2 76m. Their my favorite spinning rods even sold my nrx in favor of them. Good taste sir. Those two blanks cover so very much of what I adore doing for my smallies (except top water). I’ve got no reason to look elsewhere for my smallie endeavor...

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

not conquest or NRX level but still awesome rods supposedly (i have not fished with one yet, but will one day) I would love a Conquest 901 spinning rod [-o< But of course the 901 conquest would be SJR not JWR like the 901s NRX. The 901s NRX excels at swimming marabou up and smaller spybaits for sma...

Save up longer. Get what you will eventually arrive at and save money in the process. Don’t rush it.

Re: Football Jig / Heavier Fluke rod

the challenge with a custom is not only cost but sometimes blank availability...” Totally agreed sir but would also add warranty into the mix. Though I’ve broken so very few rods in my lifetime that I barely remember those that I broke. I do like that piece of mind and am willing to pay for it. The...

Re: One Nice All-Purpose Spinning rod

Yes sir I have. The 7’6” ML XF is dead on right. Smallmouth are all that I fish.

Re: One Nice All-Purpose Spinning rod

I wouldn’t overlook St. Croix in this conversation either. I’ve owned/fished a lot of the rods mentioned in this thread and I throw a few “Ned’s”. :D I haven’t seen a bad rod mentioned yet. Sir, what size lead/hook do you throw for “Ned’s” ? Offering choice ? Just curious as that rig has been green ...

Re: ZMAN plastics

Put the original bags in the new binder. Space for lead (over the initial version) and no zipper (they listened to me all around). It’s been with me over miles of rough terrain in all climates. Zero issues. I suspect a years worth of Z offerings to fit in the single version. (and I’m on the water a ...

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

The only comparison between the two rods is the one power. They’re different animals.

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

Anyone here have any experience or thoughts on the new NRX 901 SJR Special Run vs an NRX 921S MR? I'm questioning whether the reel seat on the 921S Inshore series wouldn't be more sensitive than the one on the Jig/Worm series rods? On the 901 and 902 I always had the heel of my hand on the fore gri...

Re: Nrx/conquest finesse rod

How does the Conquest 842S compare to the NRX852S? Slower. I don’t like the 852s or c. They’re XF action makes the rest of the rod a broom handle, imo Same here sir. Never cared whatsoever for the 852s (all I fish are smallies). 872s different story in my hands dragging smaller tubes. Anyone here a...

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

Yes sir I can confirm a yes on both. I already preordered a 901 and a Stella FJ for it. I’m batting around adding a 902 as well. I had two of both the 901 and 902 and stupidly got rid of all four. Not again.

Re: What's your favorite NRX and why ?

901S for swimming marabou
872S for tubes

My all time favorite sticks for those presentations. In my hands. I owned a LOT of spins from the lineup.

Smallies of course.

Re: Rods/reels you regret not buying

A green & white Cardinal 3 back in the 80's when they were drying up. I saw one in a Chippewa Falls, WI bait shop and I just didn't want to spend the $35. :doh: Good stuff sir. Up until a few years ago I had 6 or 7 that I chopped the bail from in the 3 and 4. I sold them after a ton of use for a he...
