I bought my first spinning setup and I'm amped to use it! I have the G. Loomis NRX+ 842S SJR paired w/ the Shimano Stradic FL 2500.

^ This + my NRX+ 842C MBR paired w/ a Shimano Curado MGL 150 are my 2 setups going into the 2023 season.

My first ever St. Croix Rod (Premier Bass Pro Exclusive 6'-6" Med light). It's not a high-end rod or anything but man this thing is pretty dang sensitive. Paired it with Stradic FL1000 and I loving this setup!

I wasn’t even expecting It to ship until the 27th. When I ordered the website said they were closed for inventory and all orders would ship on the 27th. Then I got shipping notice next day!

The newest acquisition by the resident Shimano hater on bassresource.

 

Decent, but I'm not really impressed by it. The cheapness of the brake dial show how its truly a Shimano reel.

 

The Tatula Tw80/SV70 (bfs spool), Revo ALX (bfs spool) and the Kestrel Elite are way better reels.

First shimano!
How would y’all set the internal and external brakes up on this reel for pitching?

Also what’s preferred spool tension on these?

I would go 2 on and 2 off for the brakes.  Middle of the dial on setting adjusting as needed and just a smidge more spool tension than what is needed to remove side to side play.  More if using a clear slinky for line.

The line up as of now! I am going to replace some of the spinning reels with ultegras eventually. I love the look of having all the same rod/reel.

What size Tranx are those?  I had a 301 and loved it- wish I kept it to put on my big boy rod!  I regret selling it as a package with my Tequila Baccarac which was not an ideal pairing.

     I'd start with all four brakes on and the brake setting to 4-5. Set spool tension to just enough so there is a very little side to side play in the spool. Like a 1/32nd of a inch.  I was in the two on two off camp for a long time.  But when I was throwing lighter baits it was pretty twitchy and would get small birds nests if it was a less then perfect cast. 

     The newer Shimano's I have seem to perform much better with all of the brakes on and then adjust the dial setting to about 4 or 5. Heavier lure or windy day I'd up the dial to 10 or 12 for best performance.
