Yes I'm a bargain buyer, I've had 4 ethos rods and love them. I thought about buying the nano can anybody compare and contrast these 2 rods for me? Or any reviews on the nano?

Haven't tried the Nano but it sure feels nice in the hand.

There's no comparison really. The Nano is 5x the rod the Ethos is. I have 2 Ethos that I got as a gift, I'm not a big fan. They're severely underpowered. I use the 7' HEAVY for fishing weightless worms ffs. And the sensitivity is average at best. They make good moving bait rods but beyond that I don't like them. The Nano is way better quality rod, much more sensitive, lighter, stronger too.

With that said, the Nanos cost $90. . .you could spend $10 or $20 more and get a 13 Fishing Omen Black and have a rod that's worlds better than a Nano.

Cant compare the two because I have never used an Ethos. I do have a couple of Nano's(Big Crank, Flippin). They both have performed just fine with no issues. The micro is a better rod IMO if you can find them.

If you are at the 90-100 range, do yourself a favor and pick up a Dobyns Fury!! I have experimented the last month with some different 100 range rods... None are balanced like the Fury while it is in the palm of your hand with a reel on it!! It's those subtle differences that appeals to me!

I would second the Lews $80 reels. I have 2 of them and they are very nice.

$ for $ it will be hard to beat a nano rod even at $90. Its a good rod for that price point and probably equivalent to most of the $150 rods I have seen.
