Created out of a demand for Gary Loomis to venture back into fly rod building at EDGE, this exciting new offering is aimed to please those looking for high performance, cutting-dege designs.
Introducing a new series of fly rods, built by the master himself. Available in two distinct actions, from the highest modulus carbon-fiber. These are the lightest in-hand, most responsive and efficient fly rods on the market.
This new series incorporates two main actions: A moderate action, and a fast action. All models ship with a premium fabric sock and carbon-fiber or aluminum rod tube case. The moderate action rods are fitted with an alloy threaded, up-locking alumium seat, with a stabilized Buckeye hardwood spacer, locking nuts and hook keeper. Rods are adorned with premium cork grips, ALPS XN titanium stripping guides, and the impressive Snake Brand snake guides by Mike McCoy.
The fast action Saltwater family also features ALPS XN titanium stripping guides and Snake Brand snake guide by Mike McCoy. Each rod is finished with an Alps machined and anodized aluminum reel seat and is fitted with a premium cork full-wells grip with appropriately sized fighting butt.
