NRX is the culmination of what we have been doing at G.Loomis since day one. We have been continually striving to build the best rod on the planet. Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know how you expect from us. These new NRX rods look like nothing we have built before. They feel better than anything we have built before. We aren’t talking about a little better here or a little lighter there - What we are saying so there is no confusion.. . “This is the Best Fly Rod Ever Built!” Period!!
A smooth, powerful casting 13-footer rated for an 8/9 Scandi head. At 500 grains it loads this rod perfectly and makes tight narrow loops using the "under hand" cast. At 550 grains, utilizing the Skagit method, it will manage all the necessary tips... full sinking, intermediate or floating. We dual rate them in grams for Europe and grains for the North American market. While it casts the new short Scandi-style heads exceptionally well, it's more than capable of handling a wide variety of casting strokes given the proper lines. A wonderful choice for medium to large rivers. It is capable of casting big, weighted flies if necessary, to get down in those deep pockets where salmon or steelhead rest on their migratory journey. NRX gives you unbelievable power and line control in a rod so light it's insane! Vendor: G.Loomis
