If you are in the market for a new 5wt rod we suggest you take a look at one of these rods. But don’t just take our word, look at the Yellowstone Angler’s 5wt Shoot Out Rod Review and see what they’ve been saying. It’s the most comprehensive rod review out there and the NRX LP has been #1 the last 2 years over the Sage One, Orvis Helious, Winston BIIIx and 30 other rods. The Radian is #2. We have them both in the shop if you want to give one a toss. We have been fishing them next to the Sage One the last year or so and have to agree they both are better performing and more enjoyable to fish.
