WOODLAND, Wash. Featuring 'Conduit Core Technology', G. Loomis' use of proprietary material and a unique blank manufacturing process, the fly rod maker introduces its new 15 model IMX-PRO series, built to the specifications of professional fishing guides. All with purpose driven actions, the new series offers 10 four-weight through eight-weight freshwater models including two one-piece streamer rods, and five three- through seven-weigh 'ShortSpey' two-handed rods.
While traditionally with fly rod design, as the blank diameter increases so does the total amount of material used. "But with Conduit Core Technology, we can still ensure strength and durability in the bottom half of the rod by replacing excess wraps of graphite with our proprietary material," said G. Loomis' Red Kulper. "We're able to offer fly anglers a rod with similar strength but lighter in weight, better balance, and boosts energy through the blank. It's all about improving efficiency, and most importantly reducing fatigue so you can enjoy your time on the water even more."
All 15 IMX-PRO fly rods include single-foot chrome guides and Fuji chrome stripper guides, along with G. Loomis-designed ported custom reel seats. The four through six weight rods have micro full-wells grips along with hook keepers, while the seven and eight weights have full-well grips with MFB. All rods come standard with a Cordura wrapped rod tube.
Made in the USA at G. Loomis facility in Woodland, Wash., the IMX-PRO fly rods are backed by G. Loomis' limited lifetime warranty and Xpeditor service program.
