G-Loomis NRX Saltwater Rods,
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 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!!
Heres where fly rods begin the crossover from fresh to salt. This dynamic tweener is a great choice for almost any saltwater flats species. Looking for a small steelhead rod or a great pond rod for big largemouth? Ditto. NRX makes it so light and so powerful it will surprise you. Its totally capable of handling oversized surprises no matter where youre fishing. Looking for a bigger challenge in the salt or a great all-around freshwater rod for bigger fish, this is a good as a 7-weight gets.
The standard by which all light-duty saltwater fly rods and heavy-duty freshwater rods are measured will soon be changing. This smooth casting 8-weight will quickly become our #1 9-foot fly rod for fishing the flats as well as steelhead. It has the versatility and quickness of a much lighter rod but with more power than you can imagine. Tight loops and great range in such a lightweight package makes this our top choice for bonefish, permit, snook, stripers, blues, salmon, steelhead, pike and any number of big fish. They just dont make a better rod than this anywhere.
When you need power yet lightweight, especially to cast bigger flies in the wind, make longer casts and handle bigger fish, this maybe the new standard in 9-weight rods. It will handle almost any larger saltwater species - except maybe for tarpon and our field testers are having so much fun trying to land on we havent heard back from them yet! Permit, barracuda, jacks, big reds, stripers, blues, false albies - you name it. Its got the range as well as the power to handle large, wind-resistant freshwater bass flies and the biggest bass on the planet as well.
This is, without a doubt, the lightest, most powerful 10-weight weve ever made. It will cast big flies, handle big fish and give you the range needed to cover a lot of water, especially on windy days when a lot of fly anglers are thinking its time to go home. Add in a super amount of lifting power and youve got a great rod for species like big permit, big dorados, cobia and even small pelagics. Its all about power and yet its so light you wont believe it. If youre into insanely big fish on a fly rod and you want to test your mettle, this is your rod.
When you talk finesse in a fly rod, it usually refers to trout fishing. But when it comes to the saltwater scene, the topic quickly moves towards the flats. For days when the tarpon are contrary and you need to use longer leaders, small flies and make quiet presentations, this is the rod. NRX graphite makes it insanely light and so powerful it will quickly get your attention. When you want those big silver kings to tire out before you do, this rod can and will do the job. A great option for small billfish as well.
You might find it hard to imagine a rod lighter and more powerful than our CrossCurrent GLX tarpon rod, but this unbelievable 12-weight will change your thinking. When the need raw power, this is the rod. When the need is casting all day long and still be ready for more, this is the rod. When the need is pressure on a big poon - this is definitely the rod. Bottom line? When the target is big fish - tarpon on the flats, cobia on the beach or striped marlin offshore - this rod will do everything you ask of it and more. Its scary light, sneaky strong and casts like a 10-weight. Youre welcome.
