G.Loomis NRX + LP

G. Loomis’s Dynamic Recovery Technology (DRT) is a combination of the new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and the new GL8 resin system, two building blocks that together are stronger by weight than the composition material of the original NRX. This gave rod designer (and world casting champion) Steve Rajeff what he needed to build the versatile all-water fast-action NRX+ series. But because DRT is also lighter and has less resin, it was perhaps even a better opportunity to create a dry-fly rod with a crisp, rapid recovery, and a delicate delivery.

In situations with wind, large flies, indicators, and long casts, this technology helps develop stable loops with less effort and less fatigue, but in lighter line weights, fatigue and effort aren’t problems that need to be solved. Instead, the NRX+ LP (Lite Presentation) uses DRT to load the rod more efficiently at short to medium ranges, yet recover (snap back to the straight position) with crisp authority so you have a light rod that gives you very precise ability not just to put the fly on target, but to make sharp mends, and exercise the line control you need to produce slack in highly technical situations—and still set the hook.

The 4-piece NRX+ LP is available in line weights 3 through 6 with titanium SiC stripper guides, machined aluminum reel seats with amboyna wood inserts, and single-foot Recoil guides. $800 | gloomis.com
