NRX two-hand rods are the culmination of what G.Loomis has been doing 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!! Those are strong words from Steve Rajeff himself. These rods are 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.
