Introducing G.Loomis' next advancement in graphite rod technology - the NRX Series Spinning Rods are the result of the exclusive NRX construction method, which is completely unique in rod manufacturing, and allows G.Loomis to make the NRX Series at least 15% lighter than similar GLX rods, and up to 20% stronger and more impact resistant as well. By utilizing stiffer, lighter and higher density carbon married with Nano Silica resin systems, the NRX rods can be lighter - yet more durable, extremely sensitive - and yet stiffer. Light 'ticks' turn into thumps, and anglers can easily feel the difference between their lure dragging across silt, gravel and ridges - even at 60-feet. Offering the best at every level in terms of graphite, resins, and components - you've never felt rods with this much life.
All NRX rods also feature G.Loomis' unique Hybrid Guide System, which combines the strategic placement of both Fuji Titanium-Framed SIC Guides and REC Recoil Black Ion-coated, Nickel-Titanium Guides from the stripper to the tip. The stiffer Fuji guides, closest to the reel seat, offer more sensitivity transfer to the angler, along with moving weight back to butt section and helping to balance out the rod, while the REC Guides are extremely small and lightweight, so as not to impede casting and retrieving performance. An exclusive, proprietary Skeletonized Reel Seat also keeps the angler's finger truly in contact with the blank, while providing a sturdy, ergonomic base for the reel. Manufactured in the USA, like all G.Loomis rods, the G.Loomis NRX Spinning Rods provide anglers with the most dynamic, lightweight and sensitive rods G. Loomis has ever created.
NRX 852S JWR - Sometimes it's just difficult, especially in the wind, to cast lightweight lures and smaller soft plastics. That used to be an issue, but not any more thanks to NRX Technology! The extra-fast taper allows you to make low, accurate casts so you can fish right up under the brush and when a real "toad" grabs your bait you'll be in total control. If you need a rig to cast soft plastic jerk-baits and Senko's, this is the one.
