my green NRX 822S SYR is slightly heavier than the two blues ones that were reported in this thread. i'm not sure if that's due to: 1) rod variability, 2) scale variability, 3) the switch from 3M powerlux resin to another different resin, or 4) the green paint and glossy clearcoat that the blue NRXs do not have. i dunno...maybe a combination of them all.
- g.loomis NRX 822S DSR blue: 3.6 ounces
- g.loomis NRX 823S SYR blue: 3.8 ounces
- g.loomis NRX 822S SYR green: 3.6 ounces
My green NRX SYR 822S weighs 3.35oz. And yes, I have cross checked the accuracy of the scale using a known weight. [/quote
bassmar, thank you very much the info...it was exactly what i was hoping for. i have two scales, both checked for accuracy, that i use to double-check my weights. i'm more convinced than ever that the alternate resin loomis now uses in their NRX blanks is heavier since all my NRXs are newer and are post-3M powerlux. regardless, i am totally digging my NRXs
Not sure when the change to 3M took place but I purchased my rod in August 2013.
