G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 1568/9-4 FLY GREEN
A smooth, powerful casting 13-footer rated for an 8/9 Scandi head. At 500 grains, it loads perfectly and makes tight narrow loops using the “under hand” cast. At 550 grains with the Skagit method, it will manage all the necessary tips - full sinking, intermediate or floating. We dual rate them in both grams and grains for our worldwide market. While it casts short Scandi-style heads exceptionally well, it’s more than capable of handling a wide variety of casting strokes given the proper lines. A wonderful choice for medium to large rivers, it is capable of casting big, weighted flies if necessary to get down in those deep pockets where salmon and steelhead rest on their migratory journey. With NRX, you have unbelievable power and line control in a rod so light it’s hard to believe.
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.
