I bought my first G. Loomis rod. Itís a E6X 7ft 1 Heavy for pitching jigs and I love it. I was wondering if the NRX are as good as some people say? Are they really that much better than a 200 dollar rod ? If so why

The answer is yes. They are lighter and more sensitive. But, they need to be paired with a light reel. I fish GLXs, my buddy fished NRXs. I thought the NRX was the most sensitive thing I had ever used until he traded all his NRXs for Conquests. We were C-rigging the other day and he let me use one of his Conquests. It was like when I was a kid watching "The Wizard of Oz" for the first time, when they went from black and white to color. Nothing compares.
They are expensive, but as he said, when you're fishing for money, you have to take any advantage you can get.

Interesting . I have a hard time spending that much money on a rod but if itís that big of a difference I may have to reconsider. Do you think it would make that much of a difference for flipping and pitching?

I bought the NRX 893, 894, and 895. Sold them in less than a week. TIP heavy and hated the balance. Of course you can counter weight them, but if I'm spending that type of money...no thanks. I'm sure they are great for some, but I'm picky and these do not justify their price IMO.

Have 2 NRX and 3 GLX along with 2 IMX Pro spinning rods. Wouldn't give them up for anything I've tried.

This has been my opinion too. They are sensitive, but both NRXs and GLXs are tip heavy and do not balance out with lightweight reels in my opinion. Dobyns Champ. Extreme and Kistler balance much better are lighter, especially in the tip, and feel much better in my hands.

Does anyone sell them with a return policy? I just hate that I have never held one.

I actually prefer my GLX over my NRX personally. Why I buy GLoomis is if you break it itís a $100 replacement for life. So yes I may have a small fortune in rods I wonít have to buy that model at full retail ever again.

I let a buddy of mine fish with one of my Loomis NRX sticks. At the end of the day he offered to trade me two similar Dobyns Champion Extremes for my two NRX rods and I took him up on it. A week later he offered me $100 to trade them back. I still own the Dobyns rods.

Do the NRX ever go on sale or can you buy them used?

They won't win you any more money if you couldn't catch/find fish with the cheaper stuff you already have.
