TravisNY as you may know I have a 1000 Exist looking for a stick. At this point it has seen neither line or rod and its killing me. All in good time I guess. Good luck with your set up let me know how you like it.

I'm going to try a NRX 894 this year to see what the hype is about.

Should be here in a couple days. Now Gary at the Trap will be getting an order on a river smallie small top water combo I've been wanting.

Considering an Exist as well, for my backup Hedgehog F4ST-69RSDTI. Which size Exist?

I bought one last spring and it was by far my most used rod this year, it's so so nice.

Picked up a Valkyrie
Should be here this Friday, I eagerly await the 7’4”
Don’t know what reel just yet but I want to compare
Their spiral wrapping to what I’ve come to know and love.

I need another rod and I’m. Looking hard I’m running out of
time. I thought about an NRX but in my opinion they are overly over rated
I am thinking JDM and I stepped out and got a reel from Japan but rods are
an entirely different creature with warranties and such. I was thinking of getting
a hien in the destroyer line up but I have an GLX 803c , thought about a 110 but
I have a custom jb rod and five other cranking of some sort rods.

The Zbone is a rod I don’t own but I think why not???
Anyways I was scheduled to work on Saturday but with the Valkyrie due to arrive
I’d be a safety hazard because I would be thinking about fishing at work. So I just
Have to make everyone safe and go fishing

Thinking a Dobyns Xtasy 755C would be the deal.

Megabass ARMS Super Leggera ASL 6904X pre-owned in the 700/800 range...and a irreplaceable drop shot Spinning rod. Haven’t determined which model but since all my drop shotting is done on the cast, something ML 7 to 7-4

That’s good to hear. I’m actually ordering 3 rods. The FMJ the Faust and the NRX 916 ubr. But the FMJ is really going to be “the rod” I will mainly focus on.

I have tried two reels on it, a SV103h at 7.8oz and a Steez SV TW at 5.5oz. I like the lighter Steez more but I think a Steez A (6.7oz) might be the sweet spot.
