Outstanding Review by John Rainer

I spoke with Josh over the phone about the G. Loomis NRX LP compared to the Hardy Zenith. Josh was extremely knowledgeable and honest. Based on the dry fly fishing I normally do, Josh recommended the Loomis over the Hardy.

This rod delivers. Super silky. A real pleasure to cast. My cousin has fished all over the world with a variety of rods, and he said for dry fly fishing, this was the smoothest rod he'd ever fished with. I will say, though, it lacks power with anything heavy (ie streamers) on the rod. Either way, it's an outstanding rod that I look forward to owning forever. Posted on 8/27/15
The best Review by Will

I have borrowed this rod from a friend to try out some streams in British Columbia and this is the best 5 weight I have ever personally used. With a nice reel, you will never want to use another rod combo in your life. The durability is insanely good as I have dropped this rod numerous times on freestone streams and never have I had a single scratch or impairment to the rod and it doesn't seem it will break anytime soon. Not to mention its stellar performance! This rod will hit the 12-6" spot off the banks without a problem and be able to give you a fight that is definitely worth your money. Buy this rod if you can!

Great rod and great advice and service from Trident. Review by Jon

This rod is the best 5wt I have ever used, Particularly good close in and at mid distance and still solid at 60ft. It has power yet a superb feel. It is almost effortless to cast and the precision is spot on. The green color/finish is beautiful and the natural cork handle adds a real quality look and feel. Also, Trident is the place to buy gear. Josh, The Fly Fishing Expert, helped me tremendously in making the selection from among several of the higher end rods I was considering. Posted on 7/9/15
NRX LP 9' 5wt Review by Don
Rating
Boy this is one great rod! I have the four peice, 9 foot, 5 weight in black/blue. It is really more slate and blue but looks great - I have had a lot of complements on the river. Really nice to have some color in a world of muted black, brown, and green... It is light and well balanced (at least with the Lamson Guru 2) and casts further than a lot of the presentation 5 weights that I have seen in action. It is a pleasure to fish a full day with this rod. Get one! Posted on 2/4/15
A New Classic Review by Richard
Rating
The G. Loomis NRX LP 9’ 5 wt. is a new classic. The NRX LP has a flex pattern that is similar to the superlative Hardy Artisan 9’ 5 wt. (which is easily the finest 5 wt. fly rod ever made). In addition, the NRX LP seems to have an indescribable energy and bounce that no other 5 wt. rod seems to possess. Not only is this a remarkably powerful rod, but it is just plain fun to fish. To me, the most versatile rod available is the R.L. Winston BIIIx 6 wt. But if you prefer a 5 wt. rod, then the G. Loomis NRX LP is the rod to have. Posted on 8/28/13
