FR150-4 - A surprisingly powerful 12' 6" two-hand rod that handles smaller flies on lighter lines. Under G. Loomis's old line rating system this would be a 7/8, but since most of the heads anglers use for the Scandinavian style, are based on the physical line weight, they refer to them in grams for Europe and grains for North America. It's designed to fish smaller rivers where distance isn't the primary objective, but don't let that fool you. It will handle big fish and big water just fine. Searun browns, steelhead and smaller salmon in the 8-20-pound range are where this rod really shines.
FR156-4 - A crisp casting 13-footer that, under G. Loomis's old rating system would be an 8/9. It's designed to cast short heads Scandi-style, but is very capable of handling a wide variety of casting styles with the proper lines. It's a great all-purpose rod for salmon and steelhead, giving you a little more distance with larger flies, even in the wind.
FR162-4 - Naturally, as the rods get longer, casting distance increases and this rod is no exception. It will handle heavier, longer heads and has no problem turning over big flies. It's a great rod for fishing winter steelhead, fall salmon or any of the great Nordic rivers for Atlantic salmon. As with all Stinger Series rods, this rod is rated in grams for Europe and grains for the North American market. Under G. Loomis's old system this would be rated as a 9/10. This is G. Loomis's best all around power fly rod for fishing the swift deep runs anadromous species call home.
FR181-4 - Now we're at the top of the two-hand food chain. This is the mega monster two-hand rod capable of handling long heads of up to 45' and those large, air-resistant tube flies used in the big rivers of Norway, Finland and Sweden. It's made to handle the biggest salmon on the planet! With no natural enemies like heavy wind or high water, this rod will get the job done where a lesser rod will make line management a lot of work. Excellent line control for big mends in the fast runs where the big fish hold make this our top choice for large rivers and their most demanding "part-time" residents.
