G. Loomis Trout Rods - Max GLX

A special family of high performance, extra-stiff, 9-foot, 4-piece GLX fly rods designed for demanding situations where distance and accuracy are essential to catch fish. These rods are great for long-line nymphing with split shot and a strike indicator. When the wind makes it all but impossible to cast a fly, this is the rod you want in your hands. It keeps you in control no matter how tough the conditions. Anglers, as well as their guides, will really appreciate the precise casts these rods will make when success is measured by your ability to hit a small pocket, only inches from the bank with one false cast from 50 or 60 feet, then pick up the entire line and punch it back out there to the next spot. It's a method used on a lot of big trout water. These rods are designed for aggressive casting, but because of the light tip, still have a nice feel for casting in close. They are not all-purpose rods, but then if you're one of those flyfishers looking for more horsepower, you've found them!

GLX Max Line Speed Action
Length: 9'0"
Line Weight: 4
Pieces: 4
Power: Extra-Stiff
Taper: Fast
A stiff, fast-action, 4-weight designed for long, accurate casts with small flies where you are fishing the shoreline from a drift boat and probing little cuts and pocket water. You can make long-range casts, put your fly right on the spot, let the fish see it and then, if he doesn't eat it, pick up your line with one false cast and repeat the process as the boat drifts downstream. GLX enhances this technique because it's so light and so easy to cast. Wading anglers will appreciate this rod's ability to lift a lot of line off of the water and make repeated long casts.

A very powerful 5-weight fly rod designed for long, precise casts. It gives you a lot of flexibility, whether you're fishing small dries, large streamers or using strike indicators, split shot and nymphs. Allows you to lift a lot of line so you can quickly reposition your cast as well as high speed false casts when fishing pocket water. Because it's so light and casts so smoothly, GLX lets you concentrate on the fishing instead of the casting.

Thanks to GLX you'll hardly notice how many casts you made so you can concentrate on how many trout you catch.
