G.LOOMIS INTRODUCES THE NEXT ADVANCE IN GRAPHITE RODS –
G.Loomis’ NRX bass and fly rods will be available from select tackle dealers in both the U.S. and Canada this Friday, August 13 starting at 8pm local time – casting demonstrations, G.Loomis factory and/or area reps and pro staffer will be on hand to answer questions, and other special events being planned by each retailer will be taking place – visit the following web site for the complete list of dealers participating in the G.Loomis NRX Launch Night.
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. For more information on the new NRX fly rods (and bass rods), visit gloomis.com, call 800/GLoomis, or stop by your nearest G.Loomis dealer.
