Holiday Gift Guide 2012

G. Loomis NRX Pro-1

Live dangerously: Catch a shark on the fly. The NRX Pro-1 from G. Loomis is built on the company’s most advanced graphic blanks yet, with kickass components including the bounce-back RECOIL guides. Nano silica particles run down between graphite fibers, upping up the strength factor. Choose from traditional evergreen (G) finish or the NRX matte black/blue wrap, in line weights from 8 to 12. All rods are 8 feet, 10 inches—and they’re one-piece models. Backed up by the company’s limited lifetime warranty—if a shark bites off the tip, you can get a replacement. Choose the 12-weight for the shark fishing excursion, $815. 2012 ICAST New Product Showcase Winner.
