So I am trading in a bunch of stuff I have accumulated throughout the years to focus on fishing out of my kayak. I fish a shakeyhead craw 80% of the time so looking to make a big investment into that set up. I'll have enough in trade in to upgrade to a NRX and am between a few models. I'll be fishing mostly a 3/16oz shakeyhead with a 3.5" ultravibe speedcraw. May expand to some tubes and flukes as well. Pairing with a Ci4 2500 with either 20/6 PP or 6-8# FC. Trying to get my hands on these before I pull the trigger, but interested what others have done.

NRX 852S JWR 7' 1" B 1 6 - 12 1/8 - 3/8 Medium Ex-Fast
NRX 823S SYR 6' 10" B 1 8 - 14 3/16 - 5/8 Med-Heavy Ex-Fast

 

NRX 822S SYR 6' 10" B 1 8 - 12 1/8 - 5/16 Mag-Medium Ex-Fast

My full opinion as to why you can save money, and get the same or better quality if you're willing to wait about a month for a rod from DVT. Take the extra 200 and buy yourself some tackle. I have two NRX rods, one was just retired and the other will be retired from DVT over winter.

Interesting thought. Although I am trading in several rods that are no longer used to fund this purchase.

I only own 2 spinning rods - the NRX 852 and MB Simoom.  The 852 is a AMAZING rod - super sensitive and versatile.  I've fished light t-rig (mostly tubes), shakyhead (my got to is 3/16oz as well), dropshot, weightless senkos, mojo rigs, and more.  I can't comment on the other 2 as I haven't handled them but the 852 really is an amazing stick.  You can't go wrong with the 852 IMO.

The 852 was the one I was leaning towards. I like the extra length. Thanks for the input!!

Megabass Orochi XX Shaky Head model and use the leftover to buy five years worth of bait.

I like something at about 6'10" M XF ...* While you can put a number of different soft plastics on a shaky head - it's all about the worm first and foremost !! I have rigged craws , tubes , flukes , etc. on a shaky head and nothing day in and day out gets bit more than a Zoom Green Pumpkin Trick Worm (or similar worm) .
