    G LOOMIS ASQUITH 6WT, 9'0" FLY ROD : ASQ 690-4

    The G Loomis Asquith 690-4 Fly Rod is without a doubt, different than any other high-end rod you have ever cast. This is truly the lightest, most technologically advanced fly rod on the market. The Asquith is the ultimate balance between power and feel, and fishes as well in close as it does at long distances. Asquith fly rod blanks are rolled on a one of a kind Spiral X platform that exists only in Japan. No one else has the ability to produce a rod blank like the Asquith. Each rod blank is then hand-crafted with G Loomis expertise right here in the U.S. This new Spiral X technology adds incredible stability to the rod, giving it unmatched strength and accuracy, while reducing wall diameter and weight by a whopping 15%, resulting in an incredible light-in-the-hand feel. This strength and stability significantly reduces ovalization of the rod hoop under stress, which translates to pinpoint accuracy, pure energy transfer, and increased sensitivity. G Loomis Asquith fly rods are now the most accurate rods ever built, and the Spiral X technology transfers unprecedented energy to your fly line, while telegraphing every head shake all the way to your shoulder. Simply put, Asquith generates higher line speeds, which is the accessible power you don't need to dig deep for. It is right there at your fingertips. You can load the rod in close and with minimal back casts, power it up for the hero shot. Like we said, this rod is different.

    This Asquith 690-4 is a fast action fly rod that can generate a lot of power, so it is great in situations where fast line speeds and accuracy are a necessity. This also means that it excels in windy conditions or when long casts are required. The Asquith 6wt is an extremely smooth, fast-action rod, perfect as an all-purpose trout and smallmouth bass rod in medium to larger size rivers. The Asquith 6wt has ample power to launch streamers straight to that cut in the bank, nymphs extremely well, and will make flawless dry fly presentations in close and at very long distances. If you are the type of angler that prefers only the best of the best, the G Loomis Asquith was made specifically for you.

    The Spiral X design is a breakthrough in fly rod design that allows for added strength, while keeping the overall swing weight very low. The Asquith is probably the lightest fly rod we have ever had in our hands and the actual swing weight is amazingly light as well. The way that the graphite is rolled makes the blank stable and inline when flexing from all different angles. Pinpoint accuracy is not an exaggerated cliche. The Asquith series is the culmination of global cooperation in design, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Built on the proprietary G Loomis Spiral X platform, the Asquith boasts superb power transfer from tip to hand, lightning quick recovery, and increased sensitivity. Designed by world casting champion Steve Rajeff, the Asquith is an exploratory step into the future of rod manufacturing technology. With fast actions, generous power levels, titanium guides, and exceptionally light swing weight, all rods in the series excel in fishing situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts equates to success.

    Bought this 6 wt rod after reading an excellent review for its performance. I was not disappointed when I tried it for the first time on a large western stream in Wyoming while floating in a drift boat. I found it very responsive and it certainly improved my presentation. Very happy with the purchase and Reel Fly Rod did an excellent job in filling the order and customer service was great!

    Who's rod?
    Stephen Spoor (West Virginia) | August 3rd, 2019
    Today I drove over three hours to test drive several 6wt rods from the big manufacturers, Sage, Winston, Scott, and G Loomis. First, thanks to Joe and Kyle for making this happen, this is one incredible shop and the staff are great. I have been fly fishing for a few, over 45, years and and have many rods. I have found that you cannot have just one of each weight, they all have been designed to do some things great and some things less in order for the other to be great. Each of the rods I tried was excellent in its own right and each would make a person very happy as a fly fisher, period. There was not one bad one among them. The Winston Air stood out close in, the Scott seemed to be happiest at distance, and the Sage X was stiffer than I anticipated it would be and not to my liking, but remember that is ME not YOU, you need to try them all and find the rod that fits you. So, on to the Asquith 6wt. This rod, again for me, stood out from the pack. I cast it for accuracy, I cast it for distance, I did some dynamic casting to see how it would handle all these situations. For me, it lasered right in on where I wanted the cast to do, like "I really meant it to go there," as opposed to "hey, it actually went there." When I stretched it out, no problems with a single or double haul hitting my maximum distance at all, it felt like a extension of my arm and I did not have the desire to try to force it, the distance just came from the rod. Doing a dynamic cast (Belgium) the rod loaded and stayed alive and loaded the entire time and, then when I pointed to where I wanted the line to go, it just went...even if I changed directions, the rod just made it happen. My wife was with me and watched as I tried all the rods, she laughed when i kept trying the others after the Asquith so I could save a few dollars, she said for her it was like looking at something bought at the local mass market dress shop compared to a true runway dress, the Asquith flat stood out when I was using it. Is it for everyone? No, it is for me. Each person has a casting frequency and rhythm that works best with a certain rod, again, you must try them out. If I was going to be casting dry flies at short to moderate distances for trout, I would have gone with the Air. If I was going to be throwing large poppers at a distance, maybe the Radian or the X. But for an all around I can do it with aplomb and accuracy rod, the Asquith was for me.
