G-Loomis NRX Fly Fishing Rod 168 8/9-4 FLY GREEN
14 feet of power and grace. This rod is effortless at 80 feet with floating lines and any surface or near surface fly you care to dangle in the face of Mr. Salmonid. Size 8/9 mid-belly or long-belly taper with head weight of approximately 40 grams/600 grains at end of head, makes the operation of casting magic. Scandi heads can be used at 36 grams and add a few more grams for Skagit heads and heavy tips, if the need for bottom sweeping coverage is the ticket to success.
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.
