Re: Ross Evolution and Zenith

The colors in the pictures online are often difficult to really see clearly. All I can say is that the Galvan that I got on eBay is a perfect match. Keep looking on eBay if color is important to...

Re: Ross Evolution and Zenith

Re: G.Loomis to Sage?

It's funny that you should raise the option of switching from Loomis to Sage: I've been doing the exact opposite. Over the last 5 years all I've bought have been Loomis rods, including a 9' 4wt IMX,...

Re: Loomis NRX LP?

I have the 9' 4 wt NRX LP and the 9' 5 wt NRX LP. I love them both, but I think they are best suited to dry fly fishing. They can handle a nymph rig or a streamer, but this is not their strong suit.

Re: Well I did it again...

The Litespeed's greatest virtue is its light weight. However, this is also its greatest drawback, in my opinion, since in order to achieve the lightness, they had to reduce the thickness of the...

Re: Loomis.....losing fans and market share?

I disagree with the premise of this thread. I personally have bought 3 Loomis rods in the last year, and given the good press that their NRX and NRX LP rods are getting, I think that Loomis'...

Re: Line for a Loomis NRX 9' 7 wt rod

I will use it in fresh water, throwing streamers into the Wyoming wind in search of larger trout in lakes and reservoirs. This will entail longer casts (i.e., longer than the length of the head of...
