Just Ordered An Nrx!

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, I went ahead and ordered an 853c NRX dealer demo for $350. This is my first high end rod so I'm pretty pumped! I was just wondering if anyone has any sweet words of justification they want to say. :smile2: After getting caught up in the moment I'm now suffering from the money spending hangover!   :cry4:

The first time you cast it you will no longer regret the money, especially at that price. The first time you catch a fish on it you'll start saving for the next one.

I was in the same boat as you earlier this winter but I got the 852. I've only fished it once, but it feels awesome and managed a 5#er first fish. Like the others have said, you won't regret it once you fish it. As much as I'd like to get another one, I just can't justify it. I think one's enough for me! Enjoy your rod. Just wondering what rods you're upgrading from?

Thanks for the words guys! I feel a little better now. I currently use carrot stix, st. croix mojo, and a bunch of sub $100 rods. I started off looking at rods in the 150-200 dollar range and just kept going a little higher, then a little more, and then for just this much more I could get this or that rod, all the way up getting this!

Congrats on your purchase. When i bought my first cumulus i truly understood why these rods are so expensive, there works of art...

Haha, nice. That's a pretty big jump. If you don't already fish it, pick up some fluorocarbon as well and that rod'll really shine. I'm a fan of invisx because of the price and manageability of the line. Again, enjoy!

You will love the 853, it will open your eyes to what true sensitivity is in a fishing rod.    You may hae a little buyers remorse now, but I am willing to bet it will be all gone the first chance you have to use your new rod.

problem is once you see how much of a pleasure it is to fish with a high end rod...when you go and  pick up your others & use them your going to go yuck and wish all your sticks felt the same ;)

 

its all down hill from here, you started going down an expensive road now, so just enjoy the ride :)

The rod will justify itself. No worries, buy once cry once.

As long as you're paying your bills, saving some money and not going into debt I say spend the money and regret nothing. Life is too short for that sort of thing.

 

Besides, as others have said in this thread, the first time you use it you won't think of the money you spent :happy11:
