At the core of G. Loomis' design philosophy lies a passion for developing innovative fishing tools. Forged in experience gained designing and manufacturing premium fly goods, they are proud to offer a family of rods that incorporate all the basic elements of a legitimate “game-changer”. High modulus graphite, a proprietary GL7 super system, modern tapers, quality componentry, and Steve Rajeff’s legendary design ability combine to create a series of insanely lightweight, precision fishing tools that are articulate and mega-pleasurable to cast. NRX rods are incredibly light with great tapers and you'll see how technology can not only make you a better caster, but a better angler. NRX is sneaky powerful and smooth throughout the stroke, giving you incredible casting range, line control and accuracy. They understand the fish, the angler and the dynamics involved to make a great trout fly rod, but it's Steve Rajeff's design genius that makes them some of the best fly rods on the planet. Whether you're fishing streamers, nymphs, dries or big terrestrials, there's an NRX trout rod to handle the situation. The NRX has a gorgeous dark green blank that comes alive when the sun hits it, a matching dark green carbon fiber spacer, black anodized reel seat, and two tone cork detail. With versatile actions and corrosion resistant componentry, all models are suitable for use in both salt and freshwater environments. Note: 6 wt. rod comes with short cork fighting butt.
