Small water. Big rewards. Now more than ever, anglers are searching for new opportunities to explore the path less traveled. Avoiding crowded waterways in search of solitude not only offers pause from the hectic pace of everyday life, it’s also an excellent way to find that happy, unpressured fish of a lifetime. For postwork solo missions or alpine weekend wanderings, IMX-PROc blanks blend a compact 7’9” length with a stable tip to create a moderate action that loads short and tracks true. Wrapped in a shorter sock and protective tube that’s equally at home lashed to a pack or stowed under a bench seat in the truck, these tools are primed for big adventure whenever you are.

CHROME STRIPPER + CHROME SINGLE-FOOT
Pondering innovative ways to reduce rod weight, our Chief Designer, Steve Rajeff, conceptualized a viable option. In 1994, after a few hours of tinkering in our machine shop, the world’s first single-foot guide was born. The weight equivalent of removing two full snake guides from the blank, this guide system is proven to be equally durable. Wondering if they reduce line speed? Steve’s won fourteen world championships using single-foot guides on his competition rods result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance descriptions throughout the catalog.
Traditionally, as the blank diameter increases, so does the total amount of material used. This was the only way of ensuring strength/durability in the bottom half of the rod. Conduit Core technology removes excess wraps of graphite and replaces them with a proprietary material that’s of equal strength, but dramatically lighter in weight. Casters exert less energy to move the rod, increasing the efficiency of total energy required to manipulate the line when casting, mending, and animating flies.
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.
