Specific Rod Details
FR1086-4 - This is a delightful light-duty saltwater rod for calm days when the fish are spooky and you need to make a softer presentation. It is a nice alternative for small bonefish and redfish but is also a great smallmouth rod.
FR1087-4 - The 1087 is an excellent rod if wind is not a factor. It is more powerful than expected, it will handle most of the smaller flats species like bones, redfish, specks, and small permit.
FR1088-4 - This rod has the versatility and quickness of a middleweight with the punch of a heavyweight. It is the perfect all-around rod for medium-sized flies in any light-duty saltwater situation including breezy conditions and is excellent for bones, redfish, snook, stripers, and blues.
FR1089-4 - When you need to use larger flies, cast longer distances, and when the fish get bigger, this is the rod of choice. Permit, barracuda, jacks, big reds, stripers, blues, you name it and this rod will work for you. It is a great rod in the wind.
FR10810-4 - The 10810 is a real powerhouse of a rod for big fish, big flies, and windy conditions. Works for permit on the flats or the wrecks, Dorado on the ocean, striped bass or bluefish in the bays. It is a great all around heavy-duty fly rod.
FR10811-4 - When tarpon get "smart" from a lot of pressure, it's time to try a little smaller fly and make a slightly softer presentation - a great choice for dorado or roosterfish as well.
FR10812-4 - "THE" big tarpon rod or big anything for that matter. It's the rod you're going to want in the boat when the big "poons" show up. This is the most powerful 4-piece fly rod in the business!

As good as they come...
906-4 GLX Crosscurrent - Awesome rod! Very light and powerful, makes casting far a breeze. Close quarter casting is excellent with proper technique. Quality of components and performance is top notch!

Paired the 9 Wt Cross Current with an Orvis Helios reel for stripers on the Delmarva coast. Took it out for the first time yesterday and landed a nice one. It seems like it can handle sizeable fish. With any Loomis you really can't go wrong. If I had to do it over again, maybe I would consider a 10 Wt for surf fishing
