G. Loomis NRX Bass Casting Rods are the culmination of what G. Loomis has been doing since day one. Continually striving to build the best rods on the planet. Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know how you expect. The NRX rods look and feel like nothing G. Loomis has built before.

Calling on the talents of chief rod designer Steve Rajeff and the support of the entire G. Loomis team worldwide, anglers will discover that the NRX Bass Casting Rods are at least 15-percent lighter than similar GLX rods and up to 20-percent stronger and more impact resistant! NRX Bass Casting Rods feature the best components, from the custom, skeletonized/blank exposed reel seats to the weight reducing split grips. All NRX rods feature a hybrid guide system, a combination of both Fuji titanium-framed SIC and REC Recoil black ion-coated nickel-titanium guides. The stiffer Fuji SIC guides are used closest to the handle to offer more sensitivity and the smaller REC Recoil guides are used towards the tip to reduce weight.

Please note that all NRX Bass Casting Rods feature 1-piece construction. Standard NRX models feature the original grey NRX rod blank with blue/green wraps. Models that include a "G" designation feature the translucent green NRX rod blank with green/silver wraps. Made in the USA.

NRX 802C JWR B/NRX 802C JWR G - This is an incredibly light weight, insanely sensitive pitching and casting rod for largemouth, smallmouth and spots. At 6' 8", it's extremely versatile, capable of fishing light jigs, small worms, topwaters and even spinnerbaits. A really nice open-water rod, you'll find it effective when a finesse approach is required, especially for fishing lighter line in clear water conditions. If you think GLX is light and sensitive, you are not going to believe this one! NRX gives lightweight and sensitivity a whole new meaning!

NRX 803C JWR B/NRX 803C JWR G - Recognized as one of our best all-around magnum tapered casting rod actions, this may well be the best ever made! It has a unique blend of power and lightweight for fishing medium-sized jigs and soft plastics, especially for medium depths of 15’ or less. The extra-fast tip gives you accurate, low trajectory casts with plenty of power for pulling big fish away from heavy cover. If you thought GLX was sensitive, this NRX version will blow you away! It's sneaky powerful, insanely light and so incredibly sensitive you can almost feel a fish looking at your lure!

NRX 804C JWR B/NRX 804C JWR G - When the fish are tight to cover and you don't have a lot of casting room, this is the rod you want. It's powerful and gives you excellent pitching control in close-quarters. It's designed for fishing big jigs and soft plastics, but with NRX technology it's so incredibly light it doesn't seem possible that it can be so powerful. If short, accurate casts and a really sensitive rod are factors critical to your success - this is your rod. It’s a powerhouse that will haul a big bass out of the brush yet has enough tip to cast accurately. It's so light and insanely sensitive you'll feel things you never imagined before!

NRX 842C MBR B/NRX 842C MBR G
NRX 843C MBR B/NRX 843C MBR G- If you like G. Loomis's original Mag Bass Classic rods then this one is for you! This is a fast-action, magnum taper, bass casting rod for fishing small jigs and soft plastics. The tip is light with a medium-heavy butt-section and loads easily, so you can cast light baits accurately. Effective for a variety of baits and techniques, the 842C/843C is an “open-water” rod for fishing around docks, weed edges and rocks. Designed to mirror their popular Mag Bass series, they used their proprietary NRX technology to make what was once one of our best rods even better with insane sensitivity, extreme light weight and so strong and durable it seems impossible!

NRX 852C JWR B/NRX 852C JWR G - This rod is designed for fishing clear water lakes and rivers where lighter line and long casts are required to catch spooky fish. The extra length helps create more tip speed for increased casting distance and positive hook, but with NRX it fishes a lot shorter. It's so incredibly light and sensitive you'll feel things you've never felt before. When the bite gets tough and you need to downsize your baits, this rod will give you the ability to handle the smaller sized jigs and worms you need to be successful. The softer tip and powerful butt-section make this an excellent choice for fishing buzz baits. NRX makes it so incredibly light and sensitive it's takes fishing to a whole new level!

NRX 853C JWR B/NRX 853C JWR G - This is one of G. Loomis's most versatile medium-heavy casting rods and with NRX technology, it's the lightest and most sensitive they've ever made. It has a light enough tip for smooth casting with sufficient power in the mid- and butt-section to keep fish away from trouble. It fishes medium-sized jigs, plastic worms and soft jerkbaits with total precision, yet it's so light, it's hard to understand how it can be so powerful. The extra length means much higher tip-speed and that translates to longer casts and more positive hooksets, even in deep water. GLX pushes the bar on sensitivity. NRX takes it to completely new level. It's so sensitive it's insane! This may be the finest bass rod you'll ever hold in your hand!

NRX 854C JWR B/NRX 854C JWR G - Thanks to NRX technology, this magnum-powered big bass, jig and worm rod may be the best G. Loomis ever made! It's a fast-action, power-oriented casting and pitching stick designed specifically for fishing big bass in heavy cover. If you're familiar with GLX rods and their legendary light weight and sensitivity, this rod will shock you. NRX makes it so light and so sensitive it's unbelievable. You'll find yourself setting the hook before the bass can even think about heading back into the brush! It's powerful and magically quick for such a powerful rod. It will keep you one step ahead of the bass. They'll be heading for the net before they know what hit them!

NRX 873C CRR B/NRX 873C CRR G - This rod is designed to fish soft plastics on a leader behind a heavy sinker for a couple of good reasons. The heavy sinker helps you maintain positive contact with the bottom and it also creates a lot of commotion. Once you've got the bass's attention, the next thing to come along is the meal... Bingo! It can be tough to feel the bite because of all that weight ahead of the lure, but thanks to our NRX Technology, you'll feel everything that happens to your bait down there. The extra length moves a lot of line so you'll experience positive hook-sets. It's difficult to imagine a rod so light can be so powerful and it's so sensitive you'll wonder how G. Loomis did it, but that's their secret and your advantage!

NRX 893C JWR B/NRX 893C JWR G - G. Loomis originally designed this rod to fish soft jerkbaits and Senkos, but anglers quickly found it to be an incredible jig and worm rod, especially in deep water. The extra length creates a much wider tip arc, which creates higher tip-speed and that translates into more positive hook-sets and increased casting distance. It's a great combination of power and castability and thanks to the NRX technology, it's so light and so incredibly sensitive you'll be blown away! It will cast soft jerkbaits that proverbial "country mile" and will tell you everything that happens at the end of your line with an almost mystical clarity. You'll feel ever single thing you touch and when a bass engulfs your bait, there's no doubt about it!

NRX 894C JWR B/NRX 894C JWR G
NRX 895C JWR B/NRX 895C JWR G- The culmination of what G. Loomis has been doing since day one. They have been continually striving to build the best rod on the planet. Laminates, resin, mandrels, components and the know how you expect from them. These NRX rods look like nothing they have built before. They feel better than anything G. Loomis has built before. They aren't talking about a little better here or a little lighter there... What they are saying so there is no confusion... " This is the Best Bass Rod Ever Built!" Period!!"

NRX 916C UMB B/NRX 916C UMB G - Casting an umbrella rig is a little like casting a hunk of sage brush! It's awkward, cumbersome and hard to handle. The most difficult thing about fishing this rig is the cast! Swimbait rods, even the more powerful versions just don't cut it! G. Loomis designed this rod specifically for fishing umbrella rigs. The tip is soft enough to load, yet stiff enough that it doesn't over-flex and create issues with line and reel. NRX makes it insanely light with sensitivity off the charts, allowing you to feel every change in the rig and how the baits are swimming. For positive control, overall strength and confidence, we recommend you fish braid with this rig. What the heck... if 3-5 hunks of wire and a handful of small swimbaits don't bother the bass, braided line certainly won't!
