Ok so I have come across a brand new 804 GLX (green) for $300. Just curious if that's a good price or if I could get a new GLX or even a used NRX for that. I haven't seen any for that price but people on here have talked about getting those rods for that?

That's a good price for new.  You can find used NRX for about $325-350.  New NRX can be found for about $400.

Not sure if that's a great price on a discontinued model, it's ok. I'd add a little to your budget and get a NRX, you can thank me later.

I know that the nrx is a better rod and can be found at a similar price, but I like the looks of the glx more. This guy that has the glx said he'll hold it for me, he a good friend. I won't be able to get whichever one until August just trying to figure out what would be the best value.

You're gonna go with the inferior rod because of the looks? :blink:

Not strictly because of the looks, but that does play a part.

As an FYI that particular GLX is probably the least popular generation. I personally would opt for another deal. As others have noted in this thread the newest GLX series can be had for a bit more as can the NRX series. I would be more tempted to spend another $50-100 and do it right the first time rather than find myself selling this rod and hunting for something different.

That's probably what I will do

Don't get me wrong it is still a fine rod but after going through similar instances in the past where I thought I would save a bit of money or cheap out I was left with something that I wasn't blown away with or satisfied for what I spent on it. Just thinking out loud here... you buy it for $300 and fish and aren't in love with it. Then it is time to sell it. Say you end up selling it for $275 shipped/insured and it costs you $30 to ship and ensure it. That is a loss of $55 to you.

 

Say the rod you really want is $400. Now you have outed yourself $55 already from testing out a rod. That $55 may just cover the difference between what you could buy this rod for or what you may find a rep sample 2016 GLX for or a used NRX. Put a tough more money on it from your end and you have yourself a NRX.

Thats exactly what I did .....I bit the bullet and got the dream rod that I want for bottom contact at a great price.

If you like full grip then go for the new 2016 glx for a little more $. If you're going to spend that much on a rod, buy something you're going to love. Buy once, cry once.
