Product Description

NRX 1085-4

9’0″ 5-wt, 4-pc rod   Handle: Green B

In the hands of many anglers, the NRX 1085-4 generates more line speed than any other 5-weight trout rod, bar none.  Though not as stiff as the Method or Radian, the rod is perfectly tuned for its designated line weight.

  1. After casting this rod at ICAST, I went straight to my rod list and wrote just one word next to the NRX 1085-4 model: “absurd.” I must say that the 9′ NRX rods, both freshwater and saltwater, are among the finest casting fast action rods I have ever held in my hands. Arializing 50 feet of line with this rod and shooting another 50 feet feels like pulling a slingshot back 50 feet and releasing. I can’t overemphasize how well this rod is tuned to the weight and taper of typical weight forward fly lines, such as the Rio Gold and SA GPX.

    Fans of the Scott Radian and Sage Method will find their rods to be slightly more stable than the NRX, but the raw line speed generated under a normal casting stroke by the NRX is perhaps unequaled. The NRX recovers with tremendous snap, but is not quite as aldente as a Scott Radian or Sage Method.

    Don’t miss the chance to cast this fly rod.
