Re: 7'6" Spinning Rods

Love my NRX 901 but also take a look at the Megabass Flyssa.

Re: JDM Ice rods

The TUCR rods are nice, I have fusion its the bees knees. St Croix has some pretty sweet ice rods, I did the tour recently and was very impressed with their new Croix Custom Ice lineup. If I was going for another high end ice rod, that would be it. I got a couple of St Croix Custom Ice rods and a b...

Re: JDM Ice rods

I mean it gets to -10F here, even lower, and I don't have a shack to ice fish in. Water freezing on my line is already going to be an issue. I expect that repeated exposure to ice and cold temps could cause problems internally if any water gets in. And I also expect that I'd want to disassemble the...

Nice combo! Maybe a little too high end on the reel for ice fishing... only because I wouldn't want to subject it to those temperatures. :lol:
Why not?

Re: Show off your stuff

Got a new case for ice fishing, orvis safe passage carry it all. I could carry up to 4-5 rods if I change the configuration :big grin: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49134379807_2eb82bd4fd_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49134186461_81ba453619_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535...

Re: JDM Ice rods

If you're just interested in custom/bespoke ice rods, take a look at Tuned Up Custom Rods and Thorne Bros. There isn't the Japanese magic about them, but they're solid rods that are just how you want them. They do get their own special blanks made, I believe. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/484...

Hi Bantam, I purchased a Bantam MGL and Loomis rod combo recently. I can't seem to remove the spool. I've loosened the cast control knob but can't seem to pull the spool it out. Is there a trick? I also have a SLX that's fine.

Re: Braided line bad for your rods and reels?

I'm running braid on a ice fishing ugly stick LOL, not sure what kind of guides are used but they are defiantly not that great.
But no issue so far.

Its the rod I let friends and family use, no way are they using my TUCR or my St-Croix Custom ice rods.

Re: St Croix Avid or Gloomis IMX

I would also take the Helium 3 over the IMX or Avid.

With that said I would take a NRX of all 3 :big grin:

Re: Braided line bad for your rods and reels?

So in short, I'd say that guy is full of s**t. This. I run braid on every rod I own from doryns, gloomis, megabass, st-croix and kistler, even my ice fishing reels/rods have braid and I have never seen a groove, it also has not caused any problems with any of my reels. Just make sure your drag is s...

How does warranty work on these 901s if these are a limited run?

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

Got my 901 today, its been a while since I purchased a new NRX The build looks excellent, epoxy and strait guides, typical NRX cork, balance is good for a 7'6" Its definitely softer in action compared to the Megabass Flyssa and the balance is the same, the 901 is a little whippy. I would not conside...
