Hello, looking to purchase. Any NRX expert who owns all or used all can give me what’s the better choice.

 

im looking at a medium rod between 

802c JWR/852c JWR and 842c MBR

 

looking at medium-heavy rod 

873C CRR or 853c JWR 

 

which is more versatile? Better use

My choice would be the 852 and the 853, better yet the 893.

Why those over the CRR (power3) and MBR(power2)

Generally speaking the MBR'S are going to more versatile.

For the most versatile it would be the mbr taper for sure! But totally depends on what your using these rods for I’d like probsbly the 852c and 893c. 873c would probably be an excellent choice too but I’ve never really fished it

I would take the 852 and the 893.

The 873 felt to stiff and more like a 4 power..

I'd get the 852 and 893. I love the 873crr, but it's a heavy powered rod.

893 is probably the most versatile rod I've ever owned and the 852c gets great reviews (I have the 852s, allegedly the same blank, and am also very happy with it).

I read a lot of reviews. Seems like 893c and 894c are the two most chosen rod to go when it comes to versatile. Jigs, cranks, spinner, squares, t rigs, CR, swim, etc 

 

1/4-3/8= 893c JWR

1/2-3/4 = 894c JWR

NRX 893C is definitely the most versatile.  I owned 4 of them, they handled a variety of baits.

 

I sold all of my NRX's and got all Conquests.  I currently have 4 of the 903C Conquests.  As mentioned above the MBR action of the Conquests are even more versatile than the NRX's.

i agree with pretty much all of the posts on here. the 873 is great for jigs but a little tip heavy IMO. it has a pretty stiff tip, i liked that in the rod. i traded it for a MB FMJ and found a new favorite jig rod.

 

the 842 and 852 are great rods. you wont believe how they light feel in hand paired with a light reel like the aldebaran 50/51.

 

the 842 is probably a little more versatile than the 852 but if i only had one id keep the 852. both of these medium power rods are a bit less powerful than many other medium power from other brands including st croix. not that they lack backbone.

 

the NRX 852c and old glx 803c are the most sensitive rods ive ever fished. ive never fished the nrx 853 from your list.

 

hope this helps.
