STEELHEAD & SALMON RODS
Stinger GLX Two-Hand
G.Loomis introduced their two-hand “RoaringRiver” series back in 2004. Developed around the three dominant forms of spey casting – Traditional, Skagit and Scandinavian, the series is recognised as one of the most comprehensive line-ups of two-hand fly rods in the industry.
The Scandinavian style Stinger rods, whilst still available in original 3-piece configuration, are now also available in a more transport-friendly 4-piece. Like the 3-piece, the rod actions remain fast and powerful to help create narrow loops using an underhand casting stroke.
Since the physical weight of the line reflects the true rating for each rod, we’ve converted our
traditional line-size system to grains and grams for a more universal rating system.
The new GLX Stinger also incorporates nickel titanium RECOIL guides by REC which help make the rod noticeably lighter. They’re also flexible, making a mistake like catching a tree branch nothing more than an inconvenience. The handle shape has also been refined and the overall diameter reduced. The high-quality Portuguese cork, special composite end-cap and fore grip are fitted to an off set oval sculptured barrel reel seat with ivory effect insert and triple wing locking nuts, to help loosen or lock the reel easily - even in cold temperatures.
