G LOOMIS IMX-PRO 486-4 FLY ROD : 4WT 8'6"
The new G Loomis IMX-PRO fly rods are each engineered for a specific fishing technique. These rods are designed for professional guides and hardcore anglers that know exactly how they want to fish. Each IMX-PRO fly rod has a finely tuned action for that specific purpose. IMX-PRO rods incorporate a new Conduit Core Technology, which uses fewer wraps of graphite, resulting in a rod that is lighter and more sensitive, without sacrificing power or durability. Using less material reduces weight, balances better, and transfers energy more efficiently through the blank. IMX-PRO rods are very light, crisp, and effortless to cast. Striking the ultimate balance of handsome appointments, positive feel, smooth power, and durability, the IMX-PRO is a game-changing addition to the serious angler's quiver. For anglers that want a G Loomis rod, but cannot swing the cost of the Asquith or NRX, the IMX-PRO offers a dynamite alternative.
The G Loomis IMX-PRO 4wt 8'6" is the perfect choice as for technical dry fly fishing when the wind picks up. This 4wt strikes the perfect balance between power and finesse to make long distance shots with flawless presentation. The IMX-PRO 5wt fishes in close as well as it does at long distance, will launch foam terrestrials with ease, and is makes a very good nymphing rod. The 486-4 is ideal as an all-purpose trout rod for lighter tippets and smaller flies. The IMX-PRO is a fantastic performance rod from G Loomis that will compete with rods costing nearly twice as much.
The IMX-PRO rods are definitely one of G Loomis most impressive efforts in rod design, especially at this price point.
