Glx 893c vs. Nrx 893c

I have the 2016 glx 893c. Just wondering if the nrx is much better? I've read over the years so much hype for the nrx 893.

Re: Jerkbait Rod/all around Rod

By the way, if we talking about 1610M-2 Zodias... On my channel i shared a little review of this rod (but only on Russian, unfortunally): https://youtu.be/YukRIS-1dDs The one piece. The 610m-2 is two piece correct? I had the 610mh-2 and it was fine but it bothered me that it broke down in the middl...

Re: Jerkbait Rod/all around Rod

If you want to save a few bucks i really love the zodias 6'10" m even more than the 6'10" expride. The zodias has more tip and feels faster than the expride to me. Its a great all around rod that can handle jerkbaits mid and square bill cranks lighter spinnerbaits then can throw light wire hook jigs...

Re: GLX reel seats

I have a 893c and don't notice it feeing cramped when fishing it but when i read about this issue and think about it holding it i feel like its cramped. The core 100s/ jdm metainium mgs fit me very good on the 2016 glx. I recently got a aldebaran and put it on my 893 and it feels cramped but maybe i...

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

The tackle addiction is real. When i found TT and BBC it turned me on to stuff i really didnt need to see. It makes me feel better seeing people that have twice as much gear as i do :lol: The past 2 years i started spring with a totaly different line up than i end the year with.I have tried and owne...

Re: New Poison Adrena

First impression of the 7’3mh is what a amazing rod. For right at $300 after the labor day sale its a steal. By the lure rating I was expecting a “stout” mh, rating is right on point. Have a 7.4:1 metanium mgl & id give the balance almost a perfect 10. So far I’ve only fished a 3/8 scrounger. Going...
