About NRX Inshore Rods
Featuring its flagship blank material, G.Loomis expands its NRX series with nine new one-piece spinning rods built purposely for inshore saltwater applications. Designed for use with braided line, the NRX Inshore rods include models to fish docks and mangroves; traditional rods for long, accurate casts; models for true open water fishing; and extra long rods to launch soft plastics extreme distances on the open flats.
Used in its top-of-the-line bass and fly rods, G.Loomis’ NRX construction process is unique to rod manufacturing, and “is the best at every level in terms of graphite, resins and components to provide anglers with the most dynamic, lightweight and sensitive rods we’ve ever made,” said Justin Poe, global brand manager for G.Loomis. “We utilize a stiff, light and highly dense carbon married with our Nano-silica resin system, providing chief rod designer Steve Rajeff and his team with a material that provides positive benefits to anglers. The rods are lighter and extremely sensitive, yet while being very durable. Obviously we think our NRX rods are simply the best rods ever built.”
Specific to the NRX Inshore spinning rods due to the NRX blank material, anglers will notice an unequaled strength-to-weight ratio, along with purpose built techniques for all inshore fishing situations. Poe notes the rods provide accurate long distance casting by using titanium-framed, Fuji SIC K-frame stripper guides designed to keep braided line from tangling on the frames at the stiffest point of the rod. “After the first three K-frame guides, the hybrid guide train switches to nickel-titanium RECOIL guides to reduce weight and increase the rate of recovery. Combine this with our NRX material, and you’ll detect the bite no matter how far you can cast, or how windy it may be on the flats, said Poe.”
The extra-fast action, 6-foot-8-inch NRX 803S XMR and 804S XMR rods are shorter to skip docks and mangroves. Two 7-foot models, the NRX 842S MR and 843S MR, are “made in traditional lengths, but by far are not traditional rods,” Poe said. “Anglers will experience long, accurate casts with incredible power and fast recovery.”
For open water flats fishing where distance casting is a must, the 7-foot-4-inch NRX 882S MR and 883S MR are all about sneaking up and making bomber casts. The three 7-foot-8-inch NRX 921S MR, 922S MR and 923S MR are true rocket ship-type rods to launch lightweight soft plastic extreme distances. “Now inshore saltwater anglers who demand the highest performance in a fishing rod can experience the aggressive, energetic feel of our NRX technology – just as bass anglers and fly anglers have experienced with NRX since 2010,” said Poe.
