Building on the award-winning design and construction of the NRX, G.Loomis' salt-specific stick, the company's new NRX Pro-1 one-piece rod is available in 8- through 12-weight models. The lack of ferrules makes the rod very lightweight and a joy to cast all day long. All the models are 8 feet 10 inches and include custom-designed reel seats and grips. The new guide setup adds to the strength and sensitivity of the rod and also subdues casting line noise. G.Loomis NRX Pro-1 rods are available in the original matte-black blank with blue wrapping, as well as the company's newer evergreen color.
