G LOOMIS IMX-PRO 5WT, 10'0" FLY ROD : IMX-PRO 5100-4
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 5wt 10'0" answers the demands of the modern nymph angler. The IMX-PRO 5100-4 has enough power in the tip to lift, roll cast, mend line, and turn over double rigs very well, yet still has enough finesse to fish lighter tippets and small flies. This 5wt 10'0" is also a great choice to fish from a drift boat or kayak and makes a great lake rod. This longer IMX-PRO 5wt will make nice dry fly presentations, and the stiffer tip will throw smaller streamers and bass bugs. This is a very versatile length and weight that excels in for trout and smallmouth bass, in addition to being a great nymphing rod. 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. These rods are lightweight, powerful, with smooth fast-actions, and impressive line feel. IMX-PRO fly rods are attractive and distinctive featuring a cool black finish, beautiful black nickel reel seat with dark wood insert, and premium stripper guides and snake guides. G.Loomis designs the most innovative, technologically advanced, purpose-driven fly rods, that are each crafted by hand in Woodland, WA since 1982.
