Casting big flies plus catching big fish equals hard work. Ironically, the rigors of musky fishing are the main reason these fish are so rewarding to catch.
Using the right gear to reduce fatigue is one of the primary ingredients for successful musky fishing. The new G.Loomis IMX-Pro Musky rod was designed to increase efficiency to reduce fatigue while fly fishing for muskies. Traditionally, as the blank diameter increases, so did the total amount of material used—it was the only way to ensure durability in the bottom half of the rod. Conduit Core technology removes excess wraps of graphite and replaces them with an equal strength material that is dramatically lighter. Casters exert less energy to move the rod, increasing the efficiency of the total energy required to manipulate the line when casting, mending, and animating flies. The rod also featured their mega-durable cloud cork top-bottom grips that allow for maximum and efficient leverage. Retail: $625.
