G.Loomis NRX+ 690

9' 6 weight, four piece fly rod

The G. Loomis NRX+ 690 is built to throw streamers in Montana! Powerful and crisp through the tip, it’s one of our Bozeman fly shop favorites for the Yellowstone and upper Madison rivers when we are fishing sinking lines and big streamers. The 690 has a fighting butt for added leverage when casting big flies and complex sinking lines on large rivers whether they be in Alaske, South America, or out our backyard here in Bozeman, Montana.

Edgy environmental factors like sustained wind, complex hydraulics, and natural structure all pack the potential to punish productivity. With favor stacked in nature’s corner, level the playing field with fishing tools forged to conquer these, and other common variables.

With a primary focus of maximizing versatility, these adaptable actions improve angler capability and expand tactical opportunity in difficult fishing situations. Rolled with our most advanced compound taper construction to date, NRX+ provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods, without compromising “feel” and finesse in the short game. This means, regardless of casting distance or difficulty, NRX+ empowers anglers with confidence-boosting control in less-than-ideal situations.

Technology

Dynamic Recovery Technology is a blended system of several elements. Our all-new Mega Modulus+ graphite matrix and GL8 resin system, combined with the industry’s most advanced compound taper construction process, creates crisp actions with smooth, rapid recovery. The key to achieving these performance characteristics is a reimaging of our proprietary Multi-Taper Design technology. Traditionally used to enhance durability and swing weight, the G. Loomis design team developed a method of applying a similar process to improve loading efficiency and feedback. This widens the power and recovery “sweet spot”, providing performance with feel regardless of casting distance.

  • Mega Modulus+ matrix is 15% lighter than original NRX, improving overall balance and feel, and limits casting fatigue
  • Smooth, rapid recovery, allowing casters to develop stable loops with less effort
  • GL8 resin possesses the same strength and impact resistance as past resin systems with less material. This reduces overall weight, and ultimately, limits fatigue
  • Materials dampen quickly, delivering a crisp, positive feel in hand
