Re: NRX Help.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their input. Tackle Trap had a sale and picked up an NRX894 JWR for 4 bones new. You guys were spot on. Its perfect for my 1/2oz pitching. Mounted my IP79 and will get some action tomorrow. I made a couple hundred pitches in the yard and it feels great. Sensitivity ...

Re: 13 Metanium xg or hg????

I was going to post this same topic and seen this. Good info. If the OP doesn't mind, I have a question. In the past with some Shimano reels, the 7 gear reels had more noise than the 6 gears. I plan on grabbing one for Jigs. I really want the XG for speed, but is there going to be more noise in the ...

Re: NRX Help.

Talking with a buddy who has tried a few I'd lean 894c. I grabbed an 854c for my 1/2oz jig work since like you said, my 3 powered NRX had a 3/8 sweet spot. I was told the 894 has more power than the 854 and the 854 is a wicked 1/2oz jig rod. I thought about the 895 as well but was told it was a bro...

Re: NRX Help.

I was in the same boat as you. I wanted something more powerful than the 746 in the NRX line up. I too fish a 1/2oz jig in wood/brush/laydowns/bushes ALOT. NRX 894 is perfect. Just an amazing rod. I got a really good deal on one and put a full cork grip + balanced it in the blank. I use a tdz 103ml...

Re: NRX Help.

I looked at the measurements of deflection in the TT site. The 873 measured a 1.55, the old MBR844 like a 1.48 or something and as I said the 894JWR is a bit stouter then the 844. Guys in this forum will talk about the 873 being a powerhouse while others talk about using it for spinnerbaits. Based ...

Why is that? You'll have to forgive me, I'm kinda new on Loomis rods and have no experience on the MBR.

Re: NRX Help.

I like the 894jwr a great deal for 1/2 to 1oz jigs. I also have fished a 5 inch senko on it for a full week over grass and it was great. My understanding from many posts is the 895 gets tip heavy. So the 894 would be my recommended rod but I am a little concerned to fully recommend this to you as m...

NRX Help.

Need a little help. I just got my NRX873c CCR today. I am super stoked. Now I want another. I know its rated up to 3/4 oz, but for me the sweet spot feels good at 3/8 oz with trailer. A little info, I prefer a much heavier powered rod for pitching Jigs. My DX745 feels a tad under powered to me. GLX ...
