Ns Tj582s

Sun, 2014-02-02 08:23

 Recently bought one of the NS, have been very happy so far, light and powerful graphite that is great to load, very comfy under the arm for jigging all day. I have not had any monsters on it yet, 7kg dhus and sambos and an 11kg yellowfin has been my best, handled the fin easy. I haven't had any experience with the xzoga. Cheers

Sun, 2014-02-02 08:40

I got mine at BLUEWATER tackle Scarborough, worked there many years ago and still have mates in there, but the price of the ns have come down a bit too, should pick one up for under 400. Cheers

 The ns was a very nice rod

Sun, 2014-02-02 16:01

 The ns was a very nice rod and i liked it alot. The temple reef is just a step up again. It is just as light as the ns, has slightly bigger eyes so your knots dont catch as easily and i feel it has a much better action for jigging. Its a slightly faster taper which i like for demersals. It means that the lower section of the butt doesnt bend as easy as the ns. Retails for slightly more than the ns at around $475. Got mine from oceanside.

Good call,

Sun, 2014-02-02 18:23

 Ye sorry I'm north but Oceanside got good stock and great help, probably easier for you coming up from the south too. Also agree with the size of the eyes on the ns, they are quite small, not as small as the gomoku rods which I play around on but, will be having a look at getting a temple reef soon meself and keep the ns. Cheers

I have the Xzoga

Sun, 2014-02-02 19:30

I have the xzoga 6312 and 6313. i love the 6312, its a cracking light demersal rod. I use it for jigs up to 75gm, its rated higher but go the bigger rod for heavier jigs, probably wouldnt fish over 100gm on the 6312.

It has an awesome shock absorbing action, and folds away beautifully to the but. Im running a Stradic Ci4 4000 on it with Pe2 Daiwa Accudepth braid, put a sustain knob on the stradic as well. Great, light combo that will stop a lot of fish. 

 

Cant compare to the NS as i heven't used one.

 

Heres a couple of vids with it in action;

Mon, 2014-02-03 19:41

 Nice vid albee. The xzoga looks like a similar action to the temple reef. The ns is more parabolic.
