Fly rods from Gary Loomis (G.Loomis) have an excellent reputation worldwide - and have done so for many, many years! Quite a few models from the American rod maker enjoy absolute cult status today. This is hardly surprising, because at G.Loomis, one hundred percent fishability meets high-quality craftsmanship, the best components and timeless design. Exactly what discerning fly fishers are looking for! The NRX+ Freshwater single-handed rods now seamlessly join the long success story of G.Loomis.
In fly fishing, difficult environmental factors (e.g. strong or persistent wind) have the potential to affect productivity and enjoyment. But not with the NRX+ fly rods from G.Loomis! That's because these rods were designed with maximum versatility in mind, and the adaptable action of the advanced blank enhances the caster's skills and expands tactical options in difficult fishing situations. The NRX+ rod blanks are rolled with G.Loomis most advanced compound taper construction and offer the power, line speed and loop stability expected from modern rods with fast action. All without compromising on 'feel' and finesse. This means the NRX+ offers anglers confidence-inspiring control regardless of casting distance or fishing difficulty - even in situations that are far from ideal.
NRX+ blanks are based on G-Loomis Dynamic Recovery technology. G.Loomis' brand new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin system combine with the industry's most advanced rod blank construction process to deliver powerful charging followed by instant recovery without reverberation. The key to achieving this performance feature lies in the redesign of the proprietary Multi-Taper design technology. This design has also previously been used by G. Loomis to improve recovery power and durability. Now it has been further developed, which not only increases the power of the blanks with a "sweet spot" for power and recovery, but also offers performance with feel regardless of casting distance. The Mega Modulus+ Matrix is 15% lighter than that of the original NRX rods, which improves sensitivity and reduces casting fatigue. The fast recovery allows for nice tight loops with less effort, helped by the newly used GL8 resin. It has the same strength and impact resistance as previous resin systems, but with less material. This reduces the overall weight and additionally limits fatigue. Last but not least, the excellent dampening properties of the NRX+ also deliver a clear, positive feel in the hand when fighting a fish.
The black, slim blank of the NRX+ presents itself with a classic finish, as discerning fly fishers expect from G.Loomis. Discreet blue decorative wraps and a beautiful Micro Full Wells cork handle in AA quality are among the convincing features of this versatile rod series, as is a high quality ringing. If you're looking for a high-end rod with a fast yet sensitive action for trout and grayling fishing... look no further! The NRX+ Freshwater single handed rod will have you hooked. We are convinced of that.
