You already know about the advantages of GLX, with its unique "lighter than air" balance, the subtle power, the castability and immediate response. Factor in the high line speeds, unbelievably tight loops and superior fish fighting power, these rods are at the edge of the envelope for both performance and technology.
Designed nearly 20 years ago by Gary Loomis and Steve Rajeff these rods are modern classics, that will always have a place in fly fishing history. These beautiful rods come with a Loomis rod tube and cloth sack.
FR1084 - This is a versatile 9-foot fly rod, good for small to medium flies on medium to large streams and lakes. It's delicate enough to handle all but the most microscopic of patterns. For the ultimate in sensitivity and lightness, you won't find an equal.
FR1085 - This is the bread and butter trout rod. A great choice for all-around versatility and performance. The GLX is the lightest, finest casting 9 ft. 5-weight in the industry, as determined by more than a few comparison tests, university studies and endorsements.
FR1086 - Years ago, a nine-foot six-weight was the standard for western trout anglers. As rod materials have improved and rods have become lighter and stronger, the 6 weight has taken a back seat to the 5 weight. Capable of remarkably long casts, the 6 weight also has the ability to make delicate presentations - especially in windy conditions where a 5 weight can't quite handle it. This is a good streamer rod, and it admirably casts oversized, wind-resistant poppers, stoneflies and hoppers. It's also an excellent rod for ultralight saltwater applications on the flats.
FR1088 - An extremely versatile, medium-heavy rod suited to larger flies and floating or sinking lines. It's the number one choice among saltwater anglers for flats fishing, as it's capable of handling the predominant flies used in that environment.
