NFC rod numbering question
Posted by: Pat Haley (---.newsourcebroadband.com)

Would someone be so kind and explain the numbering system on the NFC X-Ray blanks.
MB 7108-1
MB 7109-1
SJ 736-1
MB 736-1
DS 721-1

I understand the -1 is a one-piece rod.

Just completed building the MB 7108-1. Now to build the MB 709-1, SJ 736-1 and MB 736-1. Using the NFC Soft Touch grips. Cannot wait to get the MB 7108-1 on the water and try it out. The issue building the other 3 rods is I use red thread on my heavy and med heavy rods to tell them apart while on the deck of the boat. Blue thread goes on crank bait and rods with treble hooks. I ran out of red thread. Mud Hole has back ordered the red thread. If anyone knows where red thread can be purchased please let me know. Thanks in advance.

MB = Mag Bass
SJ = Spin Jig
DS = Drop Shot

The first numbers are the length.
The last number, before the dash, is the power.
After the dash is number of pieces.

Examples:
MB 7108-1 = Mag Bass 7' 10", 8 power, 1-piece
MB 7109-1 = Mag Bass 7' 10", 9 power, 1-piece
SJ 736-1 = Spin Jig 7' 3", 6 power, 1-piece
MB 736-1 = Mag Bass 7' 3", 6 power, 1-piece
DS 721-1 = Drop Shot 7' 2", 1 power, 1-piece
