G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 1446-4 FLY GREEN
At 12'0" for #5/6 line, (360 grain Scandi - 400 grain Skagit), this rod is at the very light end of the spey rod range. Some may call this a Switch rod, but it's right on the edge so it's up to the individual angler, your skill level. It is a joy to cast most summer time patterns with floating lines and can handle Skagit heads if you need to dredge the bottom, with 10 grains per foot tips. It is ideal for summer steelhead, but if a big "B-run" grabs hold, you still have enough power to even the odds.
An extreme performance, 12-foot Switch rod that, thanks to a highly technical nano-silica resin system, is incredibly light and unbelievably strong. It features a fast action to create tight, aerodynamic loops for long, accurate casts. Positive line control throughout the swing with excellent mending qualities. Rated for both Skagit and Scandi-style lines, it's the serious fly rodder's dream rod. Whether your fishing skaters on a floating tip or intruders on a sink tip, this rod will handle just about anything you ask of it. Available in matte-black with aggressive, bright blue wraps or the more subtle forest green finish with matching wraps.
