just curious if anyone is familiar with the two rods and can tell me how they compare. Thanks for your input.

NRX all day. I do like the Legend Elite series. I built 2 customs on the blanks. I could tell the difference easily between the NRX and Legend Elite in sensitivity. Both are great rods. Price would be a major factor.

The 2 Legend Elite blanks are a 7ft Lite and a 7'6" MH.

St Croix does have a great warranty.

I have had them both in spinning variants. The tapers are different with the NRX being really fast and the St Croix having a fast tip with a parabolic action. The St Croix is more comparable to a 842 MBR taper.

the nrx 852 has a faster tip for sure and in my hands is more sensitive. I have two of the legend elite 7 m action casting rods and 1 spinning 7 m and like stated above they have a softer tip and more parabolic bend in the rod once loaded. I really like the 7 m casting rod its one of my favorites in the line up for many things on the lighter side. smaller keitechs, blade baits, underspins, and a really good jerkbait rod if you prefer a 7 footer for them. I throw a lot of vision 110+1s on the elite. i no longer have the 852 casting but still have the spinning which is the same blank. i really liked it for light texas rigs and 1/4 oz finesse jigs more of the bottom bouncing stuff.
