If Accurate And Fast Is What You Need, Then The G Loomis Asquith Is The Fly Rod For You!If you are an angler who needs instant line speed with pinpoint accuracy then this perfectly designed rod is for you! Steve Rajeff took the precept of an all-water rod and developed one of the best casting and easy recovering pieces of equipment ever developed.
With no specific fish in mind, Steve and G Loomis built this high-tech rod around their proprietary Spiral X technology. Ultralight with power to instantly turn the largest fish in the world, the Asquith was designed not for one species or environment.
One cast to a tailing redfish or to a lurking steelhead will convince you that your choice to go with the Asquith was one of the best you ever made. The only question that you will have is; "Why isn't everyone else copying G Loomis?"
Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X technology utilizes triple layer construction consisting of an oblique fiber core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-oblique fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, providing virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.
REDUCED TORSIONAL BLANK TWIST keeps the rod tracking true through the casting stroke and equates to unsurpassed accuracy.
INCREASED HOOP STRENGTH makes Asquith recover exceptionally clean aiding in tight, stable loops and maximum line speed.
LESS MATERIAL than traditional graphite construction combined with perfect swing weight reduces casting fatigue after a long day on the water.
Asquith rods ranging from #4 through #6 weights have a smooth, versatile, fast action that falls right between our NRX and NRX LP trout series of rods. It’s the perfect taper for a wide range of fishing applications ranging from technical dry fly fishing to throwing indicator rigs with weighted flies and split shot. G Loomis has increased the power level in the rods ranging from #7 through #12 weight in order to address the demands of throwing longer casts with larger flies in the saltwater. While these sticks have plenty of power to deliver in the challenging conditions on the flats, they still load effortlessly on those 20’ to 40’ shots where the majority of eats happen.
