G. Loomis NRX Rods are the culmination of what G. Loomis has been doing since day one - continually striving to build the best rod on the planet. G. Loomis NRX Bass Casting Rods look like nothing they have built before. NRX Rods feel better than anything G. Loomis has built before. G. Loomis NRX Rods are the best at every level in terms of graphite, resins and components to provide anglers with the lightest, strongest, most sensitive bass casting rods G. Loomis has ever made.
This is an incredibly light weight, insanely sensitive pitching and casting rod for largemouth, smallmouth and spots. At 6'8", it's extremely versatile, capable of fishing light jigs, small worms, top-waters and even spinner-baits. A really nice open-water rod, you'll find it effective when a finesse approach is required, especially for fishing lighter line in clear water conditions. If you think our GLX is light and sensitive, you are not going to believe this one! NRX gives lightweight and sensitivity a whole new meaning!

Recognized as one of our best all-around magnum tapered casting rod actions, this may well be the best we've ever made! It has a unique blend of power and lightweight for fishing medium-sized jigs and soft plastics, especially for medium depths of 15’ or less. The extra-fast tip gives you accurate, low trajectory casts with plenty of power for pulling big fish away from heavy cover. If you thought GLX was sensitive, this NRX version will blow you away! It's sneaky powerful, insanely light and so incredibly sensitive you can almost feel a fish looking at your lure.

When the fish are tight to cover and you don't have a lot of casting room, this is the rod you want. It's powerful and gives you excellent pitching control in close-quarters. It's designed for fishing big jigs and soft plastics, but with our NRX technology it's so incredibly light it doesn't seem possible that it can be so powerful. If short, accurate casts and a really sensitive rod are factors critical to your success this is the rod. It’s a powerhouse that will haul a big bass out of the brush yet has enough tip to cast accurately. It's so light and insanely sensitive you'll feel things you never imagined before!

This rod is designed for fishing clear water lakes and rivers where lighter line and long casts are required to catch spooky fish. The extra length helps create more tip speed for increased casting distance and positive hook, but with NRX it fishes a lot shorter. It's so incredibly light and so sensitive you'll feel things you've never felt before. When the bite gets tough and you need to downsize your baits, this rod will give you the ability to handle the smaller sized jigs and worms you need to be successful. The softer tip and powerful butt-section make this an excellent choice for fishing buzz baits. NRX makes it so incredibly light and sensitive it's takes fishing to a whole new level!

This is one of our most versatile medium-heavy casting rods and with our new NRX technology it's the lightest and most sensitive we've ever made. It has a light enough tip for smooth casting with sufficient power in the mid- and butt-section to keep fish away from trouble. It fishes medium-sized jigs, plastic worms and soft jerk-baits with total precision, yet it’s so light, it's hard to understand how it can be so powerful. The extra length means much higher tip-speed and that translates to longer casts and more positive hook sets, even in deep water. GLX pushes the bar on sensitivity. NRX takes it to completely new level. It's so sensitive it's insane! This may be the finest bass rod you'll ever hold in your hand!

Thanks to NRX technology, this magnum-powered big bass, jig and worm rod may be the best we've ever made!! It's a fast-action, power-oriented casting and pitching stick designed specifically for fishing big bass in heavy cover. If you're familiar with our GLX rods and their legendary light weight and sensitivity, this rod will shock you. NRX makes it so light and so sensitive it's unbelievable. You'll find yourself setting the hook before the bass can even think about heading back into the brush! It’s sneaky powerful and magically quick for such a powerful rod. It will keep you one step ahead of the bass. They'll be heading for the net before they know what hit them!

We originally designed this rod to fish soft jerk-baits and Senko’s, but anglers quickly found it to be an incredible jig and worm rod, especially in deep water. The extra length creates a much wider tip arc, which creates higher tip-speed and that translates into more positive hook-sets and increased casting distance. It's a great combination of power and casting ease and thanks to our new NRX technology; it's so light and so incredibly sensitive you'll be blown away! It will cast soft jerk-baits that proverbial "country mile" and will tell you everything that happens at the end of your line with an almost mystical clarity. Talk about keep you focused? You'll feel every single thing you touch and when a bass engulf your bait, there's no doubt about it!!

This rod is designed to fish soft plastics on a leader behind a heavy sinker for a couple of good reasons. The heavy sinker helps you maintain positive contact with the bottom and it also creates a lot of commotion. Once you've got the bass's attention, the next thing to come along is the meal... Bingo! It can be tough to feel the bite because of all that weight ahead of the lure, but thanks to our NRX Technology, you'll feel everything that happens to your bait down there. The extra length moves a lot of line so you'll experience positive hook-sets. It's difficult to imagine a rod so light can be so powerful and it's so insanely sensitive you'll wonder how we did it, but that's our secret and your advantage!!
