Conquest vs NRX

I used my fishing buddy's 904c Conquest, and I have to say I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on one. While it's nice my NRX's are easily more sensitive in my hands, and I mean if I'm paying that much for a rod I'm wanting it to be hypersensitive. Does anyone else feel this way that owns both? And I...

Re: Rod Balance

I'll take light over heavy and balanced any day. I jig fish with a NRX 894 for example. A lot of people find it tip heavy. It doesn't bother me. It's almost impossible to balance a rod with a reel. The reel sits to far forward. I'm the same...adding weight just seems so counterproductive I refuse t...

Re: Daiwa SS SV103 SH/L ?

Everyone likes the Alphas platform but to me the OG Steez is hands down the most comfortable and best looking platform.

Re: G Loomis power ratings

Hi everyone, Looking for some advice to try to understand a bit better the power ratings of the GLX and NRX line. I mainly own shimano rods expride and poison adrena and really am struggling to get my head around g Loomis power ratings. For example the nrx 854 is marked as heavy but has almost the ...

Re: Anyone built on the MB 704 HM?

I got one of each last year but haven't had a chance to build them. The RDA powers are MB704HM 410g, MB705HM 456g. The 704 is moderate action, the 705 is fast. Thanks that helps! I had a mb 705 hm and loved it but from what I remember it was more medium power. I’m planning to cut one to 6’10 and bu...

Re: NRX 853c vs GLX 853c

Can anyone share their thoughts on these two rods as far as power and tip? I have the newer model GLX 853 but I want to upgrade to the NRX 853. I really like the way the tip loads on the GLX 853 for 3/8oz t rigs and was hoping the NRX counterpart was similar in power and tip. Before anyone says NRX...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

Can anyone tell me how the 7'2" H Expride compares to the 7'2" H Zodias? Or does anyone have a recommendation for a 3/8-1/2 oz jig rod for $200 or less? Shimano did a really good job keeping the powers uniform across there rods, so exactly the same power, but it's going to be a big jump in weight a...

Re: Anyone built on the MB 704 HM?

I have not built on the 704 but have built the 705&706. I spoke to Northfork and they called them the “triplets” saying there was practically no difference between them.. I can’t honestly tell any difference between the 705 and 706 so maybe for once I might actually agree with something that they s...

Re: Megabass Ito Shiner?

Thanks guys kinda how I imagined it should be fished when I saw the larger profile and that it suspends rather than floats like the magnum 110. Confirmed I’m getting one lol

Re: Any news or excitement about Jackall Poison USDM drop?

Anyone know what the medium + is intended for? The action is fast whereas the medium heavy is "regular fast". I believe 7'3MH is for jig and worm but not sure about the medium+ which is what I'm currently considering. It's time for me to upgrade my medium action bottom contact baitcasting rod and h...

Re: Megabass Ito Shiner?

Thanks, I hadn’t seen that! Still looking for information on what conditions it excels in, and if it’s worth buying, or should I just invest in more Vision 110 colors and iterations.
