G.Loomis Asquith 890

The 890 Asquith is a durable fly rod that is at home with Bonefish on the flats or giant Rainbows in Kamchatka. A powerful rod by design, it will carry a load of line as well as any 8 weight, however, the responsiveness in the tip section makes easy work of short, accurate casting when in tight quarters.

 Spiral X® Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X technology utilizes triple layer construction consisting of an oblique fiber core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-oblique fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, providing virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.

  • 15% to 20% less material than traditional rod construction
  • Increased torsional stability offers 20% less twist than traditional rod construction
  • Reduced blank ovalization

Construction - Spiral X construction consists of three layers: an inner and outer layer of seamless Infinity Tape tightly wound diagonally in opposite directions, and a layer of vertical fibers called Muscle Carbon in between.  Utilizing Infinity Tape in place of a traditional sheet of horizontal fibers reduces overall weight and creates actions with superior torsional rigidity and hoop strength.

Muscle Carbon - A high modulus sheet of vertical fibers that provides strength and lifting power.

Infinity Tape - A seamless roll of pre-impregnated graphite tape rolled diagonally onto the mandrel. When overlapped with an additional layer at an opposing angle, the X orientation of fibers eliminates ovalization and twist, considered the main catalyst for rod breakage.

G.Loomis' "Xpeditor Service" is a no-fault, no questions-asked, service program designed to get our customers back on the water quickly without worrying about who's at fault.  If you broke the rod accidentally or are just uncertain as to whether the damage is covered under warranty, the Xpeditor Service gives you a replacement rod at a very fair price, quickly and easily.

To execute an Xpeditor claim, just call the customer service department at G.Loomis (1-877-577-0600) and tell them you have a damaged rod that you'd like to "Xpedite" They will need a credit card to charge the service fee to, along with a shipping address to send you a replacement rod. You will receive a new rod within a few days, depending on product availability. Any rods currently out of stock will be replaced as they become available.   Simply remove the new rod from the package, place the damaged rod back in the same package. There will be a pre-paid, pre-addressed return label provided inside the package.  Just place this return label over the existing label on the package and either hand it back to the driver or take it to the nearest FedEx location for shipment back to G.Loomis.
