My dad and I are in Pulaski steel fishing and to waste time last night we went into Fat Nancy's. He was stunned at $300 rods (I will kill anyone who tells him how much Winstons msrp for!) so I wanted to flip him out and show him a $1050 NRX spay. Not only was it ugly with the blue wraps but the wrap at the cork was absolutely terribly done! Not impressed at all. Should have taken a picture.

I don't care for Blue either but I bought a Sage VT2 9' 6 weight. As many of you know it is cataloged as "Blue Ribbon Blue" I love the way the rod cast and I really enjoy fishing with it. The color has kind of grown on me. It's not really that bad.

No comparison between the appearance of the VT2 and NRX IMHO. The V2T is all Ribbon Blue or some variation of it whereas the NRX is matte black with baby blue wraps. Unless you're a UNC fan, I can't fathom thinking that this rod is asthetically pleasing. Performance is not in question, I'm sure it's typical Loomis quality.

As far as the VT2 goes, that's a nice rod for the price but my opinion on it is far less important than yours since you own it lol.

Tha VT2 performs and looks as good as some of the high end Sage flyrods. As I said the color really is not bad. I like Loomis flyrods too but that NRX really does sound like an ugly duckling. For that kind of money I would want looks and performance.

jaybo41, is that a "Sage" SLT in your avatar? If so that is a good example of what I'm talking about. I have both and fish them about the same amount. They are both really nice.The VT2 is less costly than an SLT but still very good.

It's actually a TXL, not SLT. Nothing wrong with the VT2, but then again I am a Sage hound lol.

jaybo41, the TXL is a great flyrod. I have other brandname rods too but I seem to fish with my Sage rods the most. I guess I'm a Sage hound too LOL.
