Have any of y'all fished with these rods? They seem pretty cool since the rod is made specifically for the Chronarch Ci4.

Also, what would you compare the rods sensitivity to? So sensitive you can feel the fish looking at it, like on the NRX? Or sensitive like you know you have a bite like a falcon cara amistad?

I have one. The 7'3 MH glass 2-piece. I use it for my Thumpers (bladed jigs) and shallow cranks and it's one of my favorites. I can feel the vibrations very well, and it loads up really nice. Haven't lost many fish on this setup, even throwing the cranks. I have a good friend that bought a couple of them after trying mine out and seeing what they could do.

Nothing compares to the sensitivity and weight of the NRX, which is also a little higher price-wise. I feel like the Expride is priced appropriately for what you get relative to the NRX and the GLX lines.
