G.Loomis NRX Fly Rod Review – 1st Impressions


NRX is the culmination of what we have been doing at G.Loomis since day one. We have been continually striving to build the best rod on the planet. Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know-how you expect from us. These NRX rods look like nothing we have built before. They feel better than anything we have built before. We aren’t talking about a little better here or a little lighter there…

What we are saying so there is no confusion… ” This is the Best Fly Rod Ever Built!” Period!!

BIG Claims – I know………

Not a bad way to christen the new NRX #12 wht – 124 cm ( 61lbs ) Of Boyne River Barra

I have had the please of fishing a couple of G.Loomis NRX’s over the last few weeks – a 10810-4 & 1089-4 with my initial impressions being outstanding!

These new NRX’s are significantly lighter than the previous CrossCurrent GLX series ( The lightest fly rods I have ever picked up in fact ) with lightning faster tapers while remaining amazingly smooth to cast. The recovery & line speed generated has to be experienced to truly appreciate the advances made with the new material nano resin technologies.

I had the pleasure of fishing with Neil Shepherd recently who owned the NRX #10 wht pictured above – there have been some BIG long tails up the Island over the last month. All we need is some blue sky days to target them on the flats next………

My own NRX 1089-4 arrived yesterday, so I headed straight out to chase some golden on the flats with Any Beer in his new Scout Costa. We had the best weather we’ve seen in weeks with blue sky nearly all day. After running around a bit, we finally located some clear water after the recent flooding rains. I matched the NRX 9ft #9 wht up with my Abel Super 11 & Scientific Anglers Shark Skin #9 wht Clear Wet-Tip.

The rod is effortless to cast with fantastic line control – ideal suited to sight fishing where fast,accurate presentations mean the difference between a great day or disappointment.

I can’t wait to spend more time on the water fishing these amazing new rods & will update my reports and findings as time on the water allows
