  1. The NRX+ 890-4 is almost identical to the 790-4 in feel and casting characteristics.  This is a fine saltwater fly rod:  light, quick and powerful.  It requires a heavy line for optimal loading, like a Rio Flats Pro or SA Grand Slam.  The saltwater rods in this series will particularly appeal to old school saltwater casters, those who value power over any other trait and aren’t afraid to put some muscle into the casting stroke.

  2. Similar to the 790 NRX+, the 890 is a very smooth casting rod with lots of power. It is remarkably light in hand and is a pure joy to cast. I found it very easy to load and shoot line. It has a lot more feel than the previous 9′ 8wt NRX and is a much easier caster in my opinion. This rod will handle windy days on bonefish flats with the best of them. My favorite line that I cast on here was the Rio DirectCore Flats Pro.

  3. This rod gets the 5-star nod in part because of the reputation of the original NRX 908. That rod was loved and proven as a top performing 9 foot 8-weight across the range. For this line weight and length, I believe the NRX+ 908 is an improvement in every way. This is a level-headed fly rod that might not have as much “wow factor” out of the gate as some other rods in this line class, but what this rod possesses is a reliable and predictable action that inspires confidence through consistency. Pick up this rod and know you can get the job done. It is exceptionally stable and solid through the cast and doesn’t leave you guessing about what it can and cannot do. The new NRX+ is the rod for the angler that wants an 8-weight to perform all the duties required of the 8-weight line without compromise. You could argue there are better pure flats 8-weights out there, just like you could argue there are better heavy freshwater 8-weights or striper 8-weights and so on. I think you’ll be hard pressed to find a rod that steps up to these varied tasks better than the NRX+ 908.
