Drop-shotting is a finesse technique that puts the bait just off the bottom and keeps it there where the fish can see it. They can't stand to have it hang there, wiggling enticingly right in front of their nose. The rods we use for this technique feature extra-fast actions, but the tips are light so the angler can impart a subtle wiggle to the bait without a lot of wasted motion. The soft tip also allows the fish to eat the bait without a lot of resistance. The magnum taper allows the rod to load up so quickly that once you lift it, the fish is hooked. NRX adds yet another dimension to the technique with incredible sensitivity. When a bass touches the bait you know it!!

Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis 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.
The essence of perfection. Using Mega-modulus material with incredible tensile strength, and our most advanced proprietary GL7 Resin System, rods built on the NRX matrix are the lightest, most sensitive traditionally constructed graphite rods ever produced by G. Loomis. Anglers can easily feel the difference between their lure dragging across sand, gravel and rock in water depths exceeding 60-feet. The graphite, resins, and components used to construct these rods come to life enabling the angler to be confident that they have the right tool for the job while exceeding all expectations.
