The NRX Lite is markedly lighter, more accurate, and it generates incredible line speed. Feel free to stop by and cast one at Red's Fly Shop the next time you come our way.
Our review of the NRX is a very precise, lightweight trout rod designed for casting small dries at high speed and/or when conditions call for long, delicate casts using extremely light leaders to help you fool spooky fish, the NRX LP rods are the answer.
They are smooth casting, soft tapers for managing long, whisper-thin leaders and small to medium-sized dry flies. They track true for exceptional accuracy and control, plus they are light as a feather with beautiful lines, featuring select species cork and your choice of our original, stealthy look in matte black with bright blue wraps or a more traditional Evergreen with subtle green wraps and silver trim. When the fish get finicky and the water gets low and clear you will have the answer... NRX LP!
What makes the G Loomis NRX different?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, G Loomis can provide a material that provides all kinds of positive benefits to anglers. The rods are lighter, yet more durable, extremely sensitive, and yet stiffer. This is designed to give you an on the water sensitivity through the rod blank that anglers have never felt before either in a G.Loomis rod or any other.
Why the NRX versus other rods?This rod is for advanced casters, or casters that plan to be someday. It is designed to generate a lot of line speed and drive casts a long ways, accurately, and often into some wind. And it does. It is a fast action rod but still does have a great feel. In a lot of ways the G Loomis NRX just "has it", you know what I talking about. That energy that you can feel when you pick up a fly rod. It is so light, so crisp, and you can feel every vibration of the fly, line, and fish through the blank. We do a lot of casting lessons and competitive casting at our fly fishing campus at Canyon River Ranch and it is funny to listen to people's reaction when they pick up the NRX, oooooohhh! It just has that feel.
