G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 1567/8-4 FLY GREEN
This positive action 13', 7/8 lb. (480 grain Scandi- 520 grain Skagit head), loves to push long casts using integrated short-head floating lines such as Windcutter II, Delta Short,or SA Spey Evolution. It really shines using Scandi and Skagit (short/compact length head) and monofilament running line. It will manage all but the most heavily weighted winter patterns, with plenty of backbone to pop a cast through rain and wind. It is ideal rod for NW steelhead, and smaller Atlantic salmon applications. A light rod for all seasons.
NRX two-hand rods are the culmination of what we've been doing here at G.Loomis since day one! It's all about continual improvements and never settling for just "good enough". It's striving to build the best rod on the planet. Better, more dynamic laminates, resin systems, mandrels, components and graphite know-how is what we're all about. When you think of advancements of graphite rod building technology you think of G.Loomis, but these new NRX rods are nothing like we've ever built before. They feel better, cast better and fish better than any rod we've ever made. We're not talking about a little better... we're saying, so there is absolutely no confusion, that these are the best two-hand fly rods ever built... PERIOD!! There are two color options available for every NRX fly rod we make. Choose the bold, outrageously aggressive matte-black rods with the bright blue wraps or the more traditional "evergreen" rods with complimentary green & silver wraps. They incredibly light and so easy to cast. It's a major breakthrough in rod blank technology coupled with Steve Rajeff's design capability that makes these rods so dramatic.
