Sensitivity: As the hype suggests, sensitivity is top notch. This rod leaves no mystery as to what your bait is doing and really helps you fish more effectively. An angler should never miss a bite with this stick unless they are asleep! I found myself addicted to using this rod with braided line. When coupled together, this is the ultimate in sensitivity.

Power: The NRX 873C CRR exhibits plenty of power. When hooked up, there is substantial power in the mid and butt section to subdue a good fish. The numerous Bass I caught on this rod posed no problem at all. As mentioned earlier, this rod went with me one day to an Everglades canal to target Tarpon. I managed to hook into an acrobatic fish of about 20lbs, which after a short bout and 3 jumps managed to throw the swimbait. Though a short fight, the NRX handled the fish beautifully and I didn't feel undergunned whatsoever.

Application: Designed as a carolina rigging rod, the NRX 873C CRR certainly excels at this as well as other bottom contact techniques like texas rigs, jigs, and tubes. I would also qualify other applications as being acceptable with this stick, particularly ones using single hooks. My favorites included Senkos, swim jigs, paddle tail swimbaits, and spinnerbaits. The blank has the perfect amount of stoutness to be a very well rounded plastics rod, but as expected it is too stiff to really make a good rod to fish treble hooked baits on.

Conclusion: Through my middle and high school years in the 1990's, fishing became a true passion. As I fished more and more, I began using better and better tackle. At the time, G. Loomis was really the only true high end rod available, and I slowly acquired a nice collection of some great GL3, IMX, and GLX rods. I can still envision my rod rack full of those stealthy, subdued blanks and full cork handles. The NRX series was such a drastic change in design and cosmetics for G. Loomis, that it took not only me but many other anglers a while to warm up to them. NRX graphite is certainly something special, so it only makes sense that the design of the rods represented this as well.

G. Loomis realizes that some people may have avoided purchasing an NRX simply because of the color scheme used. With this in mind, they recently launched the NRX “Green” rod series. Every NRX rod with blue wraps is now available in this new series featuring the same components, but showcasing a green blank and wraps.
