Re: Modified full handle on NRX

I would advise you to be very careful using the Grip Savers over cork handles. They are fine if you remove and replace them constantly, allowing the cork to dry out. If you leave them on for a longer period of time, water gets under it and will rot out your cork. If you could figure out a way to se...

Modified full handle on NRX

I didn’t have luck searching... A while back, there was a post in a thread where one among us made his split grip NRX a full grip. It wasn’t a permanent mod and could be removed if needed for warranty work. If not mistaken, it involved the Accu Cull grip saver. I’m looking to do the same but need a ...

Re: New Loomis GLX rods creak when you shake them?

This happened on my 782 GLX spin years ago. Never altered performance but was weird.

Informative reviews on the series Cal. I’ve handled these rods in the store but personally can’t get over the camo EVA.

Re: Simms Challenges the Notion Gore-Tex Is the Only Viable Rain Fabric

Hmm, have you tested anything for rain up to say 80 degrees, with shorts underneath? Nothing worse then having a summer storm roll in and your choices are get wet or sweat. I don’t have any experience with summer temp rain suits, but the brand most often mentioned for those types of conditions are ...

Re: Which G. Loomis GLX Dropshot Rod

I can’t comment about the GLX rods, but i do own a couple NRX 822DSR rods. Besides drop shoting with them, I also use them for darterhead fishing. I like the action of the rods for lightweight open hook techniques.
