Re: Old School GLX (pre 2012) vs. Today's Rods

i still use my glx bcr 803 all the time. mostly 1/4 jigs and plastic. im in the minority for sure but i love the recoil guides. the glx mbr 783 is used sometimes, mostly roll casting spinnerbaits to timber. i throw small paddletails on swimbait jigheads on the 842 occasionally. the others get let us...

Re: Worth the wait ?

id agree with most reviews of this rod that it is not a typical Loomis 3 power. i used it mostly for t-rig and dragging jigs. not very fast and tip is not too soft. like i mentioned above, i think 1/2oz plus plastic is the sweet spot. it is a bit tip heavy but not as much as the 874 if you are famil...

Re: Worth the wait ?

is this a new version? do you have a link?

i loved but sold (traded?) the NRX 873C CRR i bought years ago. let me know if you are referring to that one. fantastic 1/2oz plus plastic rod IMO.

Re: What rod/reel combo has/will withstand the test of time?

i still use my GLX BCR 803 all the time, mostly with 1/4oz arky jigs. has an aldebaran 51 on it now but i'd still use it with the core it had previously.

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

for one thing, the USDM G. Loomis rods will all have hook keepers. I dont think any of the JDM shimano rods do. that would drive me crazy, to me, buying a rod without a built in hook keeper is like buying a car without cruise control. :D interesting. i wish all of my rods did not have built in hook...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

check out the MB FMJ for 1/2oz jigs. a little bit of overkill for the cover you describe but feels as nimble in hand as a lot of MH rods. well balanced IMO. jig plastic rods are what id recommend spending the most on. id recommend a NRX used or on sale (expeditor service still works if not original ...

Re: Rod for a "Guest" Angler

a loomis or st croix or something else with a similar replacement plan so if it breaks youre only out $100 or so.

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

i plan on adding a MB Javelin. seems like a great rod to launch single hook moving baits. im so happy with the balance and feel of the Daemos and FMJ that im not worried at all about the purchase. id love the CNQ 905 for small/medium swim baits and offshore fishing but the price tag is too high for ...

sensitivity doesnt get better. put something lightweight like an aldebaran on it and you will be spoiled for life.

Re: What’s your 2019 Rod to have?

i still havent bought the javelin i wanted to fish with this year. anyone want to trade for the 110 special?
