G. Loomis Expands The Popular
Pro 4X Fly Rod Series
||Las Vegas, NV
||Buyers & Press Only
Our own Wolbugger first brought you a
of the Pro 4X 8 weight fly rod last year. This exciting series from the
legendary G. Loomis utilizes blanks consisting of both GL3 and NRX graphite, and
delivers a total package that earned high marks from us. This year, Loomis is
expanding the Pro 4X line to include a broader spectrum of sticks covering
everything from specialized nymphing to spey casting.
The team at G.Loomis show us the new lineup
Pro 4X Expanded Lineup:
The Pro 4X series was initially launched as a core series of fly rods designed
to suit a broad customer base. With rods able to handle a good range of fishing
from Trout to smaller Tarpon, Pro 4X rods covered almost all of the
bases. But what about spey casters? Czech nymphers? Now the lineup expands to
fill the smaller, more specialized niches in fly fishing.
The Pro4X rods are now available in a much wider
range of applications
These long, new rods within the existing trout series provide longer lengths for
added line control when fishing tricky pocket water with single or multi-nymph
rigs. The 2 new rods include a 10 foot 3 weight, and a 10 foot 4 weight.
Suggested retail price is $375.00.
Heading to Alaska or Kamchatka soon? Like to float tube for larger trout? These
3 brand new trout rods look like winners to us. Offered in 9'6” lengths, the
6,7, and 8 weight models are built to handle everything from tubing for burly
rainbows to swinging a mouse on an Alaska stream. Like the nymph series, the
suggested retail remains the same at $375.00.
A hot commodity among salmon and steelhead
anglers, new Pro4X 2 handed rods are on the way
Anglers favoring longer rods for salmon and steelhead applications should have a
smile on their face knowing that the Pro 4X two-handed rods are on the way.
These long rods provide the ultimate in power, line control, and distance for
big casts, big mends, big lines, and big fish. The series will be offered in a
variety of sizes to cover all of your needs from light-duty summer run steelhead
to mean chinook with big grain lines. In the switch rod series, new rods include
a 10'6” 5 weight, 11'0” 7 weight, and 11'6” 9 weight. For 2 hand rods, you can
choose from a 13 footer in a 7/8 or 8/9, a 14 foot 9/10, or a 15 foot 10/11. As
far as these types of rods go, the pricing is very reasonable ranging from a
suggested retail of $480 for the lightest switch rod up to $575 for the heaviest
duty 2 hand stick.
All Pro 4X rods are four piece and come with an included tube. In addition to a
limited lifetime warranty, the “Wild Card” program also applies to these rods
which allows the owner a one time, no questions asked free replacement
regardless of how the breakage happens. All new Pro 4X models are available

G. Loomis has always been one of the top picks in the fly rod biz, and for good
reason; their rods are some of the best out there. If the price of an NRX is out
of your league, the Pro 4X family of fly rods may be right up your alley. The
expansion of the Pro 4X series is just another obvious indicator that Loomis
continues to move forward year after year. We didn't expect anything less from
