Despite best-laid plans, conditions in saltwater environments can slide sideways in a split second. Walloping wind and cloud cover pack the potential to hinder the performance of even the most experienced tropical fly angler. When favor’s 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 our most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ S provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods, without compromising “feel” and finesse for short shots when clouds turn the light down. This means, regardless of casting distance or difficulty, NRX+ empowers anglers with confidence-boosting control in less-than-ideal situations.

Dynamic Recovery Technology is a blended system of several elements. Our 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 reimagining 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.
Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis fly rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water.
While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
The essence of perfection. Using Mega-modulus material with incredible tensile strength, and our most advanced proprietary GL7 Resin System, rods built on the NRX matrix are the lightest, most sensitive traditionally constructed graphite rods ever produced by G. Loomis. Anglers can easily feel the difference between their lure dragging across sand, gravel and rock in water depths exceeding 60-feet. The graphite, resins, and components used to construct these rods come to life enabling the angler to be confident that they have the right tool for the job while exceeding all expectations.
The perfect marriage of strength, weight savings, and stealth. While our ultra-light titanium snakes look the part of a traditional guide, the added benefit of flexibility is great insurance when storing your sticks in a skiff or drift boat.
