    NRX are great rods and some of the most sensitive out there for sure. Like Gary said, it really depends on model. I also felt the 854c was dead compared to the 893c. I have a load of Megabass X7's and feel some of them compete hand in hand with the NRX. The Shimano Poison Ultima is another rod series that I would rank right up there with the NRX. The Gamakatsu Luxxe Oltre are sick rods, Ti tip makes them very sensitive. The St.Croix LE is a great rod, but it's not quite on the same level as the previous. One thing I did find is sensitivity didn't make up for a poor action for me. Not sayiing the NRX and Ultima I sold were bad rods, the actions of the models I had didnt suit my fishing and not amount of sensitivity make sup for that.

    My NRX 894C is an incredible Jig rod. Nothing comes close. I buy my sticks from the Tackle Trap as they offer a great price and the best service...

    For the money you can't beat an fx rod. Nothing in the 200 and down category can that I've tried. And only 125

    I have a group of Steez AGS rods on the way to compare to some other high end rods I fish from Megabass and G Loomis specifically. The Legend Elite rods with Torzite guides are really nice too if you understand the ratings and actions. I'm interested to see how the AGS Steez rods stack up...

    Biased but I think the NRX 893 and 894 could be the greatest rods ever made....

    I personally think the NRX is the most sensitive rod I have ever used, and we sell quite a few of them, but I’m always curious if there is something better!

    I have a couple NRX893 rods but I find myself going to my K2 765 more often as overall prefer it....even when all of them on the deck with the same aldebaren reel.
    Where are the BIG ones? When are we going?

    I never used a NRX but I think the Duckett Micro Magic are pretty sensitive.

    One of my rods is only used with bubblegum senkos. It's so sensitive I have to leave it alone on Thursdays so it can watch lifetime channel movies. Refuses to be in the same boat as my jigging sticks.

    I haven't got the chance to fish the NRX series yet, but bought a couple off of BBC this winter. Anyone have feedback on the NRX 873C in terms of sensitivity? Super excited to fish it along with the 854 I bought.

    The NRX 873 is my favorite. Could easily have 5 of them. But just have 1 lol.
