G LOOMIS CROSSCURRENT SPECIALIZED 14WT 8'6" SALTWATER FLY ROD
G Loomis CrossCurrent Fly Rods are one of the best long-range weapons you will find anywhere. Most billfish rods are designed for power rather than for casting and that is what makes this rod is unique. You can cast it over and over again and it won't wear you out. It's extremely tough and has tremendous lifting power. There's a fighting grip above the handle to give you a extra leverage. We rate it for a 14-weight line, but it is totally capable of handling heads up to 600 grains. It has nice balance and is capable of casting really big flies. A perfect choice for tuna, reef species like grouper and GT's, small marlin and sailfish. These rods are designed to shred the wind, throwing tight loops and long distances. Like the NRX, this rod has a very powerful butt and mid section, with a progressively softer tip. The CrossCurrent GLX will make difficult casts to distant cruising fish in windy conditions and meet the demands of saltwater environments.
CrossCurrent GLX rods feature G Loomis Fiber Blend technology, Multi-Taper design, and quality components. This rod is finished in an attractive olive/brown color with dark brown wraps, a full wells grip and fighting butt. The reel seat is a green anodized aluminum double uplocking ring seat with a complimentary olive/brown graphite insert. Unbreakable wire recoil stripping guides with flexible nickel/titanium snake guides reduce friction to shoot line further. The CrossCurrent GLX is simply a great distance saltwater rod, at a great price.
