The new G Loomis IMX-PRO Shortspey Fly Rod is the first short spey rod of its kind. Make no mistake, these are not switch rods. The Shortspey is the next generation of spey rods that combine the feel of a long spey rod with the powerful fast-action needed to handle modern short Skagit heads. The first thing you notice when you pick up this rod is that it is different. These rods are lightweight, powerful, with smooth fast-actions, and impressive line feel. IMX-PRO Shortspey 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 Shortspey 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 Shortspey is a game-changing addition to the serious angler's quiver. Compared to other rods in excess of $1000, the Shortspey rods are exceptional. This is a home run for anglers at about half the price.
The G Loomis IMX-PRO Shortspey 5wt 11'11" is simply an incredible rod to cast. This 5wt is ideal for launching streamers and bass bugs long distances. This Shortspey 5wt is exceedingly light and incredibly versatile. This 5wt will throw big nymph rigs, controls line, throws mends, and roll casts like no other 5wt on the market. This rod has the power to throw bulky weighted flies in the wind, yet is sensitive enough that there is still a lot of play when fighting a fish. The Shortspey 5wt is the perfect choice as your first spey rod for large trout, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, and even swinging steelhead flies. Don't be surprised when this 5wt Sportspey replaces your 5wt and 6wt rods.
