Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know how you expect from us. These new NRX rods look like nothing we have built before. They feel better than anything we have built before.

WOODLAND, Washington USA – Anglers around the globe realize G.Loomis is a long-time leader in graphite rod blank technology. It started with IM6 and GL2, then to GL3 and IMX, and then GLX more than 16 years ago, the only graphite made strictly for use in the construction of fishing rods. The next breakthrough is now here with G.Loomis‟ new NRX fly rod series, offered in 16 four-piece models in weights and designs for trout, salmon/steelhead, saltwater and two-hand/spey techniques. The rods have already received international recognition by being honored with the „Best New Fly Rod‟ award at European Fishing Tackle Trade Expo (EFTTEX), held this past June in Valencia, Spain, while at the 2010 ICAST Show‟s New Product Showcase competition, produced by the American Sportfishing Association, the NRX rods were honored with both the „Best New Freshwater Rod‟ and overall „Best of Show‟ awards.

Calling on the talents of chief rod designer Steve Rajeff and the support of the entire G.Loomis team worldwide, anglers “will uncover a series of rods that are at least 15-percent lighter than equivalent power GLX rods, plus we‟re able to offer a durability feature to make them up to 20- percent stronger and more impact resistant,” said Rajeff. “And as anglers would expect from G.Loomis, we bring the best in components – from reel seats, grips and guides – selected specifically for the NRX fly rod series. At G.Loomis, we have never settled for just good enough. These NRX rods are the best at every level in terms of graphite, resins and components to provide anglers with the most dynamic, lightweight and sensitive rods we can make.”

According to Justin Poe, brand manager for G.Loomis, the NRX construction method is completely unique to rod manufacturing. “By utilizing a stiffer, lighter and higher density carbon married with Nano Silica resin systems, we can provide Steve and his design team with a material that provides all kinds of positive benefits to anglers. The rods are lighter, yet more durable, extremely sensitive, and yet stiffer. Obviously we simply think they are the best fly rods out there.”

Within the NRX series, trout anglers are addressed with four 9-foot rods offered in 3, 4, 5 and 6 weights. For salmon and steelhead action, G.Loomis offers 10-foot NRX rods in 7, 8 and 9 weights. For both lighter action inshore and heavier tarpon and tuna use in the salt, NRX rods include 9-foot 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 weight models, while two-hand casters are provide with NRX spey rods in a 13-foot 8/9, a 14-foot 9/10, and a 15-foot 10/11.

All the NRX fly rods feature black Ion coated REC Recoil guides. Each rods custom reel seat – proprietary to G.Loomis – has no exposed threads so as to make it easy to lock the reel to the reel seat. The grips feature G.Loomis‟ „HD cork‟ design, where the cork transitions to provide more sensitivity where needed, and more durability in where needed.

“What fly anglers will experience with NRX is line on the water sensitivity through the rod blank that they have never felt before – either in a G.Loomis rod or any other,” Poe states. “And with our NRX trout rods, it could be the difference needed on whether you fish with an indicator or not. At G.Loomis, we say these rods have life. Fish one and you‟ll quickly feel what we mean.”

As with all G.Loomis rods, the NRX models are manufactured in the USA.
