G. Loomis PRO4x Fly Rods -
Designed for new-to-the-sport and intermediate fly fishers, the PRO4x packs stunning good looks and world-class technology into a perfect fish-mastering tool that is surprisingly affordable. A new taper design (based on Loomis’s groundbreaking NRX blank technology) along with a noticeable weight-reduction in the upper end results in a fly rod that is incredibly light, recovers quickly, and casts with unbelievable precision. Available in a full range of sizes, you can tackle anything from picky trout in tiny mountain streams to huge tarpon in the greenwater flats. All in all, they’re dynamic, user-friendly rods that you’ll be proud to own.
Handle A = 3-6 weight.
Handle B = 7-10 weight.
G.Loomis took a page from its famous NRX blank technology to develop a series of fly rods that “new-to-the-sport” and intermediate fly fishers will learn to appreciate. A new taper design along with a noticable weight reduction in the upper half of the blank results in rods that are incredibly light, recover quickly and cast with unbelievable precision. It’s the G.Loomis way... reduce as much weight as possible, take total advantage of the materials and create a taper that is dynamic, efficient and user friendly. Made in USA.

Fantastic rod

Speaking for the 8ft, 4wt rod, this is just an outstanding light tackle rod. For the price, I don't know if there is a comparable model. Absolutely love the fish bone reel seat as well. I purchased it as a higher end backpacking rod. I actually have 2 cabelas stowaway 6 rods, 5wt and 8wt, for backpacking and canoeing which I love, but wanted a lighter weight rod for Colorado and Washington high mountain stream and lake fishing. Has enough strength you can overload this rod with 5 wt line or larger flies but works great with 3 or 4. Perfect rod for precision dropping in those tight stream eddies. It's not technically a backpacking rod, but breaks down to 24" so it's a gift for backpacking compared to some of the 6 and 7 piece rods out there. The 8ft length leaves something to be desired when longer casts become very important but this model clearly isn't intended for those situations. Same thing can be said if nymphing is your primary fishing method, but really holds its own in either condition. You lose a little feel compared to a 9 - 10' rod but it makes up for it in control and precision.

The Real One

Hopefully this review in some small way contributes to getting the word out on this USA made line of rods. I've owned the 9 ft 5 wt for about a year. This rod feels fast action at first but under heavy load or long cast defaults to more of a moderate-fast action with a Rio Grand line. In close you can cast off the tip beautifully if you wish. The NRX tip is ultra sensitive when nymphing. The rod pulls an indicator rig out of the water with authority yet casts a long leader dry set up very well. Loomis markets this as an intermediate rod but honestly it has fishability most fishermen won't tap into. And that's fine - it's great for a novice/intermediate too because it doesn't feel dead like many Sage-like fast action rods. It's smooth and forgiving. Oh yeah, and somehow it casts linear, super accurate, and can throw a whole line out there if that's what you want. If I had one rod for freshwater, this is it. I would like to try the 10 ft 6 wt for lower water steelhead. Negatives: the cork feels cheap. The shiny finish.
