NRX UMBRELLA RIG
Casting an umbrella rig is a little like casting a hunk of sage brush! It's awkward, cumbersome and hard to handle. The most difficult thing about fishing this rig is the cast! Swimbait rods, even the more powerful versions just don't cut it! We designed this rod specifically for fishing umbrella rigs. The tip is soft enough to load, yet stiff enough that it doesn't over-flex and create issues with line and reel. NRX makes it insanely light with sensitivity off the charts, allowing you to feel every change in the rig and how the baits are swimming. For positive control, overall strength and confidence, we recommend you fish braid with this rig. What the heck... if 3-5 hunks of wire and a handful of small swimbaits don't bother the bass, braided line certainly won't!

Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water. While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
The essence of perfection. Using Mega-modulus material with incredible tensile strength, and our most advanced proprietary GL7 Resin System, rods built on the NRX matrix are the lightest, most sensitive traditionally constructed graphite rods ever produced by G. Loomis. Anglers can easily feel the difference between their lure dragging across sand, gravel and rock in water depths exceeding 60-feet. The graphite, resins, and components used to construct these rods come to life enabling the angler to be confident that they have the right tool for the job while exceeding all expectations.
