The 6 Weight Loomis NRX Trout Features a Compact Fighting Butt
If you are looking for the very best trout fly rod... this is arguably it. We were very excited when this rod was introduced. It was really a step in the right direction. Rather than fly rod manufacturers telling us how great the new models are.... they showed us! The NRX is markedly lighter, more accurate, and it generates incredible line speed. The Sage ONE is a worthy rival but more than a few anglers contend that the NRX has the lead in the performance category! Decide for yourself, cast one at Red's Fly Shop next time you come our way.A Red's customer and guided adventure guest releasing a nice rainbow and enjoying the high performance of his G Loomis NRX fly rod!
Our review of the NRX is a very precise, lightweight trout rod designed for casting small dries at high speed and weighted nymphs on larger rivers where long casts are a factor but accuracy is the key.
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.
Why the NRX versus other rods?
This rod is for advanced casters, or casters that plan to be someday. It is designed to generate a lot of line speed and drive casts a long ways, accurately, and often into some wind. And it does. It is a fast action rod but still does have a great feel. In a lot of ways the G Loomis NRX just "has it", you know what I talking about. That energy that you can feel when you pick up a fly rod. It is so light, so crisp, and you can feel every vibration of the fly, line, and fish through the blank. We do a lot of casting lessons and competitive casting at our fly fishing campus at Canyon River Ranch and it is funny to listen to people's reaction when they pick up the NRX, oooooohhh! It just has that feel.
G Loomis Fly Rod Warranty
Loomis has a great warranty. If for any reason your rod breaks while casting, fishing, or doing anything "normal" with a fly rod they will repair or replace the rod. Sometimes at no cost at all. If you leave it on top of your car and drive down the interstate and it gets ran over by an 18 wheeler, there is still coverage just not a complete replacement. They exercise their warranty on a case-by-case basis and are VERY fast at getting your rod back to you.Rod Cases and Rod Tube
The NRX comes with a very nice rod tube. Many anglers choose to get a Simms Rod and Reel Case
as well so that they don't have to take their reel off of their rod each and every time they want to use it.
