Rolled with G. Loomis's most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods, without compromising “feel” and finesse in the short game.
Edgy environmental factors like sustained wind, complex hydraulics, and natural structure all pack the potential to punish productivity. With favor stacked in nature’s corner, level the playing field with fishing tools forged to conquer these, and other common variables.
With a primary focus of maximizing versatility, these adaptable actions improve angler capability and expand tactical opportunity in difficult fishing situations. Rolled with G. Loomis's most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods, without compromising “feel” and finesse in the short game. This means, regardless of casting distance or difficulty, NRX+ empowers anglers with confidence-boosting control in less-than-ideal situations.
DYNAMIC RECOVERY TECHNOLOGY
Dynamic Recovery Technology is a blended system of several elements. G. Loomis's all-new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin system, combined with the industry’s most advanced compound taper construction process, creates crisp actions with smooth, rapid recovery. The key to achieving these performance characteristics is a reimaging of our proprietary Multi-Taper Design technology. Traditionally used to enhance durability and swing weight, the G. Loomis design team developed a method of applying a similar process to improve loading efficiency and feedback. This widens the power and recovery “sweet spot”, providing performance with feel regardless of casting distance.
- Mega Modulus+ matrix is 15% lighter than original NRX, improving overall balance and feel, and limits casting fatigue
- Smooth, rapid recovery, allowing casters to develop stable loops with less effort
- GL8 resin possesses the same strength and impact resistance as past resin systems with less material. This reduces overall weight, and ultimately, limits fatigue
- Materials dampen quickly, delivering a crisp, positive feel in hand
I have 4 of these rods in various weights and 9ft and 10ft. Incredibly responsive, reliable, great quality rods, well worth the $$
After years of fishing Scott Radians and Loop Opti-Streams, I purchased this rod. Buttressed by a solid warranty, this full wells grip and light weight rod is simply amazing. Don't get me wrong, I love my Radian, but this puppy is otherworldly, especially with a bit of wind. It cuts through it all, and it does so quite well. The presentation with dry flies is quite exceptional. And, even though G.Loomis provides a lighter presentation version of this rod, if you know your ass from a hot rock, this will do just fine in those circumstances, and just about any other for a 9'5 rod.
I have fished the older 5wt NRx for quite some time and viewed it as my #1 trout rod. Since getting the 4wt NRx+, the 5wt has some serious competition and may have been passed. The 4wt is so well balanced in it's ability to handle short, delicate situations and longer, heavier demands that it is a rod I can fish 90% of the time and love doing it. I would have rated it at 4.5 stars if possible. 5 stars on performance and 4 stars on finish. I will take 5 stars on performance all day long.
I have a 9' 6wt that I use exclusively while floating on rivers in Montana. It never let's me down. A truly awesome rod.
