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 Adderm...

Yeah I'm kinda mind screwed over the AGS guides being made of carbon fiber because carbon fiber dampens vibrations that's why carbon fiber bike frames are so comfortable compared to aluminium frames
have u ever tried the ags guides?

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

pretty sick arsenal Thanks, man. I know they're not exactly high end, but I couldn't be happier with them. They're sensitive and the tapers are excellent. I hooked a hell of a fish with the 65L/Alphas Air combo yesterday and it was handling it like a champ, but she took a hard run under a golf cart...

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

And a few others: Those pics say a lot about those major craft rods. Light weight pretty well balanced and underrated. Nice stuff. That's what got me hooked on them. They're very well designed and constructed. The only one that's really tip heavy at all is the frog rod, but it's still pretty balanc...

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

I got TT autocorrected earlier and didn’t notice. ](*,) My most balanced combo is an Imakatsu Rodeo Ride built by Designo that I got from a member here with an upgraded steez sv. 9.3oz tw.

Pics of most balanced high end rod please

If you don't mind, please post pics of your most balanced setup showing where it sits on your finger. everybody seems to have their own version of "balanced" so the best way for me to know is via picture. anything from nrx, conquest, xtasy, steez, k2, etc would be nice. much appreciated!!
