If you are a hard core steelheader in the Pacific Northwest then you know the added value of a 10' fly rod. The high sticking and mending ability. We had a guest buy one of these prior to a 3 day trip on the Klickitat River with us last August and this was a winner! The rod picked up heavy flies with ease and the client used the extra length to high stick over big current lines. The biggest compliment that he gave the rod was that the extra light mass weight of the rod wasn't hard on his shoulder while high sticking and mending.
Here's a beautifully balanced, lightweight rod for big summer steelhead or fall silvers. It's a great choice for slab steelhead up in BC whether you're skating big dries or swinging popsicles. It will punch out unbelievably long casts time after time... feeling more like a nine-footer than the ten-footer it is. It will give you hours of effortless casting and is so surprisingly powerful you can't imagine it. This is what technology is all about. Lighter, stronger and more powerful than you've ever experienced. This may be the light-duty salmon & steelhead rod of the decade. NRX is the culmination of what G.Loomis has been doing since day one. They have been continually striving to build the best rod on the planet. Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know how you expect from G. Loomis. These NRX rods look like nothing they have built before. They feel better than anything they 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!!What makes the G Loomis NRX different?
The NRX construction method is completely unique to rod manufacturing. By utilizing a stiffer, lighter and higher density carbon married with Nano Silica resin systems, G Loomis can provide a material that provides all kinds of positive benefits to anglers. The rods are lighter, yet more durable, extremely sensitive, and yet stiffer. This is designed to give you an on the water sensitivity through the rod blank that anglers have never felt before – either in a G.Loomis rod or any other.
