G. Loomis added Switch and Spey rods to round out their NRX+ Series and they’re some of the best on the market. Utilizing the same blank technology as the single-handed NRX+ rods, these two-handers are powerful and versatile with a wide range of rod models to accommodate any angling style. These rods were designed with input from legendary Steelhead guide Tom Larimer and casting guru Steve Rajeff to be some of the most high-performing two-handers in fly fishing. And we think they’ve succeeded in that mission.
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+ Spey/Switch rod series as versatile, durable, and powerful as any two-handed 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+ Spey/Switch Series. These guides are made to be lightweight without sacrificing rigidity or performance.
Hard Chrome Snake Guides - The two-handed rods in this series have hard chrome snake guides that efficiently manage line to encourage tight loops and long casts. These lines are perfect for casting thicker Spey lines and for shooting running line.
Double Dowlocking w/ Custom Aluminum Reel Seat - The custom Aluminum reel seat on the NRX+ Spey/Switch rods is made to anchor the heaviest Spey reels and to withstand corrosion and weather. The rods also have a AAA grade two-handed Spey grip to help anglers steer fish to the net.
Aluminum Rod Tube - Like all of Loomis’ high-end fly rods, the NRX+ Spey/Switch 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+ Spey/Switch rods, like all Loomis fly rods, are 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!!
