NRX Series

G.Loomis has long been a leader in graphite rod blank technology. Our desire to make the very best rods in the world is what drives us. It’s never settling for just “good enough”. It’s all about continual innovation and process improvement. Over the years we’ve championed a lot change in the fishing world. Researching and developing new materials and new designs... pushing the boundaries with each and every new product. In the late 90’s we reorganized our product lines into a vertical format, featuring species and technique-specific rods. We hybridized materials to create a unique blend of rod properties that take advantage of the best features of each fibre. These “core models” include EastFork, standard CrossCurrent, ShoreStalker and VersaSpey. They are made with this unique “fibre-blend technology”. GLX, with its extreme light weight and remarkable castability, has been our highest level of performance... but now, it’s a whole new ballgame! After many years of research, hard work and continual technological improvements, our new and most dynamic achievement incorporates all the basic elements that make great fly rods… high modulus graphite, great tapers, the finest in componentry and a new, proprietary resin system. This along with Steve Rajeff’s design ability helped us create an insanely lightweight, ultra-high performance series of rods… we call them NRX!

PRO-4X Series

We took a page from our NRX blank technology to develop a new series of fly rods that “new-to-the-sport” and intermediate flyfishers will learn to appreciate and expert anglers will wonder how this much performance gets packed into such an affordable package. A new taper design along with a noticeable weight-reduction in the upper half of the blank allows us to make a fly rod that is incredibly light, recovers quickly and casts with unbelievable precision. It’s the G.Loomis way... reduce as much weight as possible, take total advantage of the materials and create a taper that is dynamic, efficient and user-friendly. They are as beautiful to look at as they are to cast. A rod any flyfisher would be proud to own!

This rod is designed to fish soft plastics on a leader behind a heavy sinker for a couple of good reasons. Not only does the heavy sinker help you maintain positive contact with the bottom, but it also creates a lot of commotion. Once you’ve got the bass’s attention, the next thing to come along is the meal... Bingo! Model

NRX Spinning Rods

Thanks to NRX technology, this magnum-powered big bass, jig and worm rod may be the best we’ve ever made! It’s a fast-action, power-oriented casting and pitching stick designed specifically for fishing big bass in heavy cover. Model

LENGTH: 7’5” | PIECES: 1 | CaSTING

We originally designed this rod to fish soft jerkbaits and Senkos®, but anglers quickly found it to be an incredible jig and worm rod, especially in deep water. The extra length creates a much wider tip arc, which creates higher tip-speed and that translates into more positive hook-sets and increased casting distance.

The do it all, medium-heavy spinning rod designed to fish medium-sized soft plastics, soft-plastic jerkbaits and jigs. The extra length (7’1”) increases tip-speed, which in turn, extends your casting range, helps you recover line quicker and is a big help with hooksets, especially in deeper water. A good rod for 4-5” hollow belly swimbaits. A great all around spin rod for freshwater and even light-duty saltwater! GL2 853S JWR

An extremely versatile medium-heavy, fast-action spinning rod for fishing jigs and soft plastics. Fishes 10- or 12-pound line nicely with a surprising amount of power for such a light rod. It’s effective for schoolie stripers, redfish or snook in light saltwater situations, but it really shines for bass where brush and other cover challenge your ability to move the fish to the boat. This is a “can do” spinning rod! GL2 803S JWR

Model

A medium-power spinning rod with extra length for fishing deep, clear lakes. It’s a perfect choice for fishing light jigs and small worms, dragging tubes or soft plastics and the combination of a softer tip and a magnum butt makes it’s a great rod for fishing an unweighted, soft-plastic jerkbaits and topwaters. When you need to back off to be successful, this is a great choice. The softer tip helps extend your casting range, but the power in the butt helps put pressure on even the largest bass. A wonderful tube rod for the Great Lakes.

An excellent heavy-duty, magnum-tapered spinning rod for fishing in and around heavy cover. It’s designed to fish big jigs and big worms in areas where you need to move fish quickly before they can get you tangled in the brush. The extra length helps you move a lot of line which is really important in deep water, whether you’re dragging big soft plastics or jigging spoons. Catfishermen will love this rod for fishing small rivers and lakes with bait. It’s a powerful, versatile rod. Model GL2 854S JWR

We took all of the necessary elements required to make a rod that will fish a crankbait correctly… a soft, more moderate action that’s soft enough to let the lures work properly yet is still very light, responsive and sensitive.

GL2 Spinnerbait Rods

GL2 Crankbait Rods

For years, one of the most popular lures for bass fishing has been the spinnerbait. It’s extremely versatile, can be fished in multiple water columns and can be fished a number of different ways. You can buzz it, gurgle it, rip it, flutter it, jig it or just plain crank it. Our mantra has always been to make rods that provide anglers with the best actions for the technique or bait they favor. In this case, the GL2 Spinnerbait rods feature extrafast tips that improve accuracy and fish-fighting control and they load effortlessly with more than enough power in the butt-section to move fish away from trouble. It’s a unique combination of tactical advantages that make fishing a spinnerbait effective, yet simple. They are light, sensitive, powerful and dependable. It’s not just any rod... it’s a very specialized rod made for one application... fishing spinnerbaits. Enough said!

For years, many manufacturers have pushed fiberglass rods for fishing crankbaits, claiming graphite rods are too stiff and react too fast. That’s partly true because fiberglass is softer and much slower reacting, but we have gone to great lengths to design the soft, slow flex into these rods while still maintaining the sensitivity and lightweight advantage of graphite. Material is only one part of the formula, design is another, and in the case of our crankbait rods, may be the most important. These are specialty casting rods, designed exclusively for crankbaits. We took all of the necessary elements required to make a rod that will fish a crankbait correctly… a soft, more moderate action that’s soft enough to let the lures to work properly and allow the fish to inhale the bait, yet is very light, responsive and sensitive. You gain all of the advantages of graphite with a nice soft action rod that’s a lot lighter than fiberglass and far less tiring to cast over the course of a long day.

GL2 Swimbait Rods

Big baits mean big bass and it takes a special rod to handle them... both of them! We’ve teamed up with hard-core swimbait fanatics, learned from their experiences and applied to our product, what they expect in a good, reliable rod for fishing swimbaits. These new GL2 swimbait rods are made with every little nuance the experts thought would make a better fishing tool. They are designed to fish both soft and hard plastic swimbaits for largemouth bass, really big largemouth bass. The new ergonomic handle design features a magnum split grip to help reduce weight and improve the rod’s balance. The fighting-butt is big enough for an average-sized angler to grasp it firmly and the whole butt-section is extra long so you can tuck the rod butt under your arm rather than having it jab you in the ribs and the extra length also provides leverage to improve casting distance and control, not to mention handling the big bass you’ll be catching. It’s everything you’d ever need in a swimbait rod... don’t forget the net! Model GL2 956C SWB GL2 957C SWB

GL2 Flipping Stick Rod

Flipping is a technical form of heavy-duty “finesse” fishing. Heavy-duty in that you’re using heavy line, a powerful rod and virtually yanking fish out of heavy cover. Finesse in that you have to be stealthy and maintain total control of the bait, the boat and the presentation. It demands a soft, quiet entry, limited boat noise and the ability to put a lure into a small space with every intent of jerking that fish right out that same spot. It’s a lot of fun and especially effective when the fish are in locations where casting a lure is not an option due to heavy cover and they won’t come out to chase it. The length of a flipping stick allows the angler to “swing” soft plastics or jigs into or right next to heavy cover so that they enter the water softly. This allows a vertical presentation so your lure drops straight to the bottom, unlike a lure that is cast and falls toward the angler, missing perimeter zones because they sink at an angle away from the cover. The test here isn’t so much hooking fish as it is landing them! You need a rod that can move a fish quickly, with authority, before it has a chance to wrap you up in the cover. The GL2 Flipping Stick features a 2.5” tapered, round fighting-butt, a comfortable “hour glass-shaped” cork grip with a 3” cork fore-grip. It gives you uncanny balance and line control. The reel seat features blank-thru handle construction, with a trigger grip. Industrial bass fishing at it’s finest! Model GL2 894C FPR

A lot of what bass fishing is all about happens on or near the bottom. Bass are structureoriented critters that use the contours of the lake bottom like a highway. Dropshotting allows you to concentrate your efforts in those areas where they slow down to rest or stage. It’s a special technique for fishing the holding spots. With a sinker at the end of the line and the hook & bait up on the main line a few inches off the bottom, it’s all about getting them to see the bait dangling there seductively, waiting for their reaction. The beauty of this technique is that it doesn’t take a lot of experience to be successful. The rods are designed with soft tips to allow the fish to inhale the bait without feeling a lot of resistance and when the angler feels the tension or just sees the line jump, all they have to do is raise the rod and the rod will do the rest. When the bite gets tough, it’s especially effective. When the bite is on, it’s a lot of fun. You’ll appreciate all of the thought put into these rods with the very first fish. They’re designed to do one thing... fish a drop shot rig effectively, hook the fish effectively and fight the fish effectively. Get your camera ready! Model GL2 821S DSR GL2 822S DSR
