A First Look at the G. Loomis NRX+ T2S Fly Rods

New from G. Loomis: Crush Variables with NRX+ T2S
Technology-infused Fly Rods for Apex Saltwater Anglers
You don’t pick tournament days; tournament days pick you. While anglers can’t control environmental factors like wind, tide, and light, they can enhance their own effectiveness. With leaderboard glory on the line, clear a path to victory with rods forged to crush common variables. Designed for apex saltwater fly anglers, the NRX+ T2S series boasts a unique fusion of materials, technology, and innovative design to elevate angler performance under the most challenging conditions.
The all-new G. Loomis NRX+ T2S is rolled with Dynamic Recovery Technology, a blend of several premium technologies that unite to create an action with exceptional performance characteristics. Exclusive Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin, combined with the industry's most advanced compound taper construction process, create a crisp action with smooth, rapid recovery. The key to achieving this is a reimagining of G. Loomis' proprietary Multi-Taper Design technology to yield lightness, strength, and action. "Dynamic Recovery Technology enables everything that we want the NRX+ T2S to do," asserts Steve Rejeff, G. Loomis Director of Engineering. "It provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from a modern fast action rod without compromising feel and finesse. At the same time, the GL8 resin and Mega Modulus+ high-performance graphite matrix make the rod surprisingly light, reducing angler fatigue over a long day of repetitive casts."
Each NRX+ T2S rod measures 8'10" and has a unique two-piece configuration that offers one-piece performance with the convenience of compact transportability. “One-piece fly rods are quite popular, and for good reason,” continues Kulper. “Without the additional ferrule weight of a standard 4-piece travel design, one-piece rods are noticeably light in hand. They have tighter actions, which boosts line speed. However, a one-piece rod a few inches shy of nine feet in length is a major challenge to transport and ship. The Tournament Configuration of the new NRX+ T2S, with its unique two-piece construction, offers one-piece weight and performance with the added benefit of easy transportability.”
Refinements continue down the entire length of each NRX+ T2S rod. Anglers will find a hybrid guide train with Recoil snake guides and Titanium SiC stripper guides. A full wells, AAA grade cork grip provides comfort and control while chasing bonefish, permit, tarpon, and other saltwater sport fish. The custom aluminum reel seat with fighting butt provides leverage over hard-fighting trophies. A functional aesthetic feature completes the package with a glare-cutting, aggressive matte-black finish, specifically chosen to boost boat side eats from wary targets. G. Loomis handcrafts each NRX+ T2S rod in Woodland, Washington.
The new NRX+ T2S is available in five line weights to maximize its versatility across the spectrum of saltwater targets: Select the 8-weight (NRX+ T2S 8810-2) to deliver crab patterns to bonefish in skinny water. The 9-weight (NRX+ T2S 9810-2) is an excellent choice for enticing permit on the flats, stepping up to the 10-weight (NRX+ T2S 10810-2) on windy days. Tarpon adventures call for the 11-weight (NRX+ T2S 11810-2), with the 12-weight (NRX+ T2S 12801-2) well-suited for light tuna, GT’s, or other big game fish in deeper water.
Rolled with G. Loomis’ most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ T2S provides power, finesse, and sensitivity over the broadest range of casting distances and styles. These ultra-versatile tools are designed from the ground up to crush variables and maximize angler performance on the water. The NRX+ T2S will be available in late July with an MSRP of $895.
