Big wind, tricky casts, and a fired-up flats guide screaming the coordinates of a rapidly approaching target can rattle the nerves of even the most experienced angler. Demanding conditions require a rod that can easily lift generous lengths of line and produce the blazing line speed necessary to deliver your piscatorial payload with pinpoint accuracy. Utilizing our legendary GLX graphite, Multi-Taper technology, and unbelievably tough recoil guides, the GLX CrossCurrent is the weapon of choice for chasing tarpon, permit, reds, and just about any other fish that roams the salt.

The series that put G. Loomis on the map. Predecessor to NRX, the GLX graphite system is a proven high-modulus blend coupled with a crazy-durable resin system. A cornerstone of the G. Loomis family for 20+ years, rods built on this platform are lightweight, responsive, and impact resistant. With unique feel and legendary reputation for durability, the GLX continues to be the benchmark technology suite for countless anglers worldwide.
Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis fly rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water.
While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
RECOIL STRIPPER + RECOIL SINGLE-FOOT/SNAKE
Professional guides have a knack for beating the hell out of their gear, especially in a saltwater environment. Our Recoil guide trains are the closest thing we’ve found to being “guide proof,” offering exceptional durability and supreme weight savings. Nothing else will stand up to years of abuse in skiffs, drift boats, and rod vaults like a Recoil.
