The NRX+ LP is built for ‘delicate domination’. Loomis has designed this new series for technical dry fly situations where difficult casts are inevitable and trout are picky. Although this is a technical series, it also incorporates a versatile rod blank design to accommodate a variety of casting strokes and angling scenarios. Loomis upped the technology and componentry on these rods without raising the price to put the most efficient dry fly tool in the industry in the hands of more anglers.
Dynamic Recovery Technology - Loomis’ new rod technology combines an all-new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and a GL8 resin system to create a blank with crisp smoothness and blitzing accuracy. Loomis also utilized an advanced compound taper construction process to make the NRX+ LP rod series as versatile, durable, and powerful as any rod on the market. This blank is incredibly lightweight with quick recovery speeds and unparalleled smoothness.
Titanium SiC Stripping Guides - Titanium stripping guides provide durability and friction-minimizing performance to the NRX+ LP. These guides are made to be lightweight without sacrificing rigidity or performance.
Black Nickel/Titanium Single Foot Recoil Guides - Single-foot guides are made to be lightweight and encourage less friction than snake guides. The guides on the NRX+ LP rods are recoil which means they rebound when bent or crushed. More and more manufacturers are switching from snake guides to single-foot guides, and for good reason.
Double Uplocking w/ Amboyna Hardwood Insert - The reel seat of the NRX+ LP features aluminum uplocking components and a beautiful Amboyna wood insert. Smaller models feature a cigar grip and larger rods feature a half wells grip, both made with AAA grade cork. The reel seat on the NRX+ LP pays homage to trout rods of old while encouraging modern performance and finesse.
Aluminum Rod Tube - Like all of Loomis’ high-end fly rods, the NRX+ LP rods come in an aluminum rod tube with a cloth rod bag for protection during transportation and travel. These tubes hold up well and are great for cars, boats, planes, and any situation that may damage a fly rod.
Loomis Limited Lifetime Warranty - As of November 2019, the G. Loomis NRX+ LP, like all Loomis fly rods, is covered by a Lifetime Limited Warranty, which covers the rod for the life of the original owner. For breakage determined to have occurred due to non-conformance, G. Loomis will at the companies’ discretion, either repair or replace the product at no charge.
Xpeditor Service - G. Loomis offers an additional option for repair that we think is the industry’s finest. It’s a no-fault, no-questions-asked, service program that gets you fishing in as little as a few days!!
