IMX PRO Fly Rod
The G. Loomis IMX PRO Fly Rod is for the angler looking to throw heavier flies, sink tips, and nymphing rigs with relentless ease and effectiveness.
The IMX Pro is a fast action fly rod designed for big flies and big fish. These rods have a fast, powerful tip designed specifically for turning over big patterns for bass, mega trout, redfish, etc. Loomis designed this rod to be very balanced even thought its meant to cast tips and streamers, so it will not bounce too much when you are casting a shooting taper and heavy fly. However, with all of that power you still maintain a connection with the line at all times.
Built to the unrelenting specifications of professional fishing guides, the IMX-PRO series is comprised of 15 purpose driven designs to meet the performance demands of modern freshwater fishing. Striking the ultimate balance of handsome appointments, positive feel, and unflinching durability, IMX-PRO is a game-changing addition to the serious angler's quiver.
Built on the foundation of G. Loomis' IMX PRO MATRIX technology, the IMX PRO defies the laws by which fly rods have been constructed previously. With any other fly rod, as blank diameter increases, so does the total amount of material increases. With the IMX PRO, G. Loomis has removed excess wraps of graphite and replaced them with a proprietary material that is lighter but similarly strong. This means that is requires much less energy exertion from the caster to perform the casts and mends necessary for long, technical drifts in challenging angling scenarios.
The full-wells grip is comprised of smooth, quality cork with a composite ring at the bottom end.
The anodized-aluminum reel seat sports dual up-locking rings and a ported slide band for visual appeal and a tiny hint of weight savings.
This is a high quality fly rod at a mid-range price.
