G Loomis Asquith Fly Rods are without a doubt, different than any other high-end rods you have ever cast. This is truly the lightest, most technologically advanced fly rod series 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. Every G Loomis Asquith Fly Rod is designed with a specific purpose in mind, with dozens of prototypes that have been pushed beyond their limits by G Loomis anglers obsessed with the pursuit of perfection. When you cast a G Loomis Asquith Fly Rod, you instantly know the rod in your hand is truly something special. That’s why so many specialty fly shops insist these are the best casting rods on the market today.
