Thanks for the info. I actually own NRX 8wt (1088-4) & 9wt (1089-4) rods. I liked the way the Pro4x 8wt cast but found it not quite as powerful a rod as the NRX 8wt.
Interesting to read your description of the 11wt Motive. Comparison to the Xi3 makes it sound promising. If I didn't own the NRX, I'd be swinging the Xi3 models. Still, I'd love to hear more opinions. I've found that not all models in a rod series have that special feel.
The reason for my interest in the "lower" priced models has to do with advances in blank materials and manufacturing. Who would have thought that a rod under $400 (Pro4x) would cast that well? I also think that, as I've started to mature as a caster (don't get me wrong, I still have an incredible amount to practice and learn!), I'm able to appreciate different actions and 'feel' rods offer.
