Re: NRX 921S MR

I had high hopes for the 922, I ended up sad. It just wasn't a freshwater bass rod to me especially for bottom contact. It has considerably bigger guides than the freshwater series and the blank just felt slow and clunky the handle is very different as well. It also was more powerful than expected t...

Re: Best combo for a chatterbait?

I am liking my Shimano poison glorious biwako versatile x with a metanium Mgl these days. I think my favorite chatterbait rod was the Jackson bank fishing advantage too bad it fell apart after 2 seasons.

Re: The Most Coveted rods of the X7 line up are?

Far as I am concerned the x7 destruction is one of the best but it really fits the way I fish so it subjective to a point. Football jigs ,big worms big spinnerbaits, paddle tails it can do a lot. I would love to get my hands on an x7 elseil

Re: Valkyrie Rods-Megabass

I got the 7’2” heavy and it’s not spiral wrapped and it’s a beast. I was really surprised how stout it was and for a hybrid glass/graphite rod it is pretty sensitive. Have not fished it much so far but it was handling 1/2&3/4 oz chatters with 5” gambler ez swimmer trailers with ease. If I wasn’t spo...

Re: Megabass Valkyrie Rods

I got the 7’2” heavy yesterday and had a chance to fish it today. It’s a beast I have it paired up with a ryoga 1016 and threw a 1/2 oz chatter with a 5” paddle tail with it first and it is great for it,later fishing a 3/4 oz chatter with same paddle tail in 20+ ft of water I was really impressed wi...

Re: Observations of Conquest 904c vs. NRX894c

I agree 100% with the original poster ( really great write up ). I got a conquest 904c 902s 844c all three are amazing rods but.... not nrx sensitive. I have the nrx 894 and several 902 s they are considerably more sensitive in my hands especially the 902. If I was looking for a do it all 7’6” heavy...

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

Gary, in regards to the 110 special, were you able to test how light of a lure it can handle? I am wondering if it may have potential to be a BFS rod? A staysee 90 is pushing it with how light you can go with this rod. I used it for 110's, pointer 127, and duo realis 120. It handled all these baits...

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

Debating on trading my XX Diablo spec r for the Daemos. Do these rods perform similarly or is it too early to tell? The destroyers are in another league sensitivity wise? The daemos feels a little faster to me more crisp too. I have thrown 1/2oz chatterbaits With a 5" paddletail trailer with it no ...

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

I ordered a daemos basically expecting a flashier version of the xx Diablo spec r, a new chatter bait rod. I am.very impressed with this rod first off the sensitivity is right on par with the new glx rods if not a little better the action, taper and balance are night and day compared to the xx.

Re: Can I punch with an X7 Destroyer?

It's not that kind of rod. I have put a lot of time in with this rod and for me it's a 1/2-3/4oz football jig rod, big 10-12" worms, 1oz chatterbaits and spinnerbaits,big paddle tails, even bigger crankbaits. It has power but it would be clumsy and too moderate to punch with it doesn't transition in...
