When it's time to use bigger flies, make long, searching casts and battle bigger fish, this is one 9-weight you'll appreciate very much. It's unique, one-piece configuration makes it an excellent rod for a variety of big fish applications. It's light, yet unbelievably powerful and will handle a number of different species, ranging from permit to striped bass to false albacore. If you're one of those anglers that never takes your multi-piece fly rod apart, this is just what you've been looking for. Extreme performance from tip to butt!
A few years ago, during visits to the Florida Keys, G Loomis noticed a lot of guides rinsing off their rods and reels back at the docks and then carrying them up to their truck to go home. They asked them why they didn't take them apart and they said, "We never take them apart. No need to... we store them with reels and lines on." That's when it hit them! If these guys were happy to leave the rods assembled, even going so far as to glue the ferrules together, why not make a one-piece rod and avoid the ferrules all together? They used "fiber blend technology" to create a high performance blank that has an incredible combination of light weight, strength and power. They're light, sensitive and sneaky powerful. If you're one of those fanatical saltwater flats anglers that doesn't require the convenience of a travel rod, this is the innovative thinking you've come to expect from G.Loomis. Each rod comes in a protective rod sock. Pro-1 CrossCurrent fly rods are the buzz of the saltwater fly market. Just another way we help make each day you spend on the water memorable!
