NRX 852C Uses

Postby sydaar » Sat Mar 18, 2017 7:53 am

So I couldn't help myself when I saw a ridiculous price on a new NRX 852C and picked it up. I already have plenty of other rods to cover pretty much everything I throw (MB Expada and Cliffhanger for light topwater, Super Eiger for most light applications, NRX 893 and Edge 705 for jigs and senkos, MB Destruction for heavier stuff and MB Parry Arc, Simoon, Hedgehog and NRX 802S to cover UL, drop shot and shakeyheads. Anything that the 852C can do that others above can't? Any help would be appreciated; otherwise I may have to return it (Yikes)

I have mine right between my Super Eiger and NRX 893. I throw tubes, flukes, Keitech Fat impacts, and light Texas rigs on mine although I think you could throw small spinnerbaits and jerkbaits with no problem. It's a fun rod and has a little more muscle than you would think.

Ive only had mine for a short time. But so far I've been using it for 1/4 oz jigs, 5" senkos, and jerk baits (pointer 78 deep diver and staysee 90). From my short experience its pretty versatile. For the time being its being paired with an Aldebaran

I have mine paired with an alphas sv and use it for weightless senkos, wacky rigs, ned rigs, grubs and tubes.
