NRS attachment on DRE frame?

So I have a DRE frame and am interested in buying an NRS fishing lean bar for it simply bec. the NRS bar is A LOT cheaper. However NRS says that their lopro fitting will not fit on a DRE frame. I seem to remember someone here had a DRE/NRS hybrid frame so how was this done? Can I somehow make this work, or should I just buy all DRE?

DRE makes both 1.25"LD(same size pipe as NRS. Inside diameter measurements for reference) and a 1.5"XD frames. NRS components(including the lopro) will work on the 1.25" frames, however, not on the 1.5" frames.

Is this going on the front or rear? With the front, I believe you would need to have an NRS floor to attach it to as the NRS and DRE lean bars attach differently, DRE's attach via fittings directly to the frame and not the floor like the NRS setup. If it's going on the rear I imagine you would just attach it to your back cross bar.

I have a nrs frame and a dre chair. They make a fitting (T) two holes fit 1.25" pipe, 1 fits the dre pipe (1.5")
Take your idea to Down River and talk to Zach or Alex or Matt or any of them and they'll take care of you.
