G. Loomis has incorporated some incredible technologies into their fishing gear. This short article explains the differences between the materials used in these fishing rods:
- G. Loomis NRX Fishing Rods
- G. Loomis GLX Fishing Rods
- G. Loomis IMX Fishing Rods
G. Loomis NRX Fishing Rods
The G. Loomis NRX is an absolutely amazing material that uses their proprietary aerospace-grade graphite sheet and nano-particle resin. These high quality fishing rods are lighter, amazingly sensitive, and have the world’s best power to weight ratio.
NRX rods include super premium cork handles, a hybrid guide train that utilizes a combination of Fuji SiC titanium frame guides, as well as REC Recoil guides made especially for G. Loomis. Many of these rods have split grips. All have a hybrid graphite-infused reel seat that is light, strong, and comfortable. The NRX rods will totally change your perception about just what “rod sensitivity” is all about.

G. Loomis GLX Fishing Rods
G. Loomis GLX rods are some of the finest made in the world today, and easily eclipse many Japanese rods costing over $1,200.00. GLX blanks start out using a 100% proprietary graphite material. This is another material that originated in the aerospace industry and it’s not available to any other rod manufacturer in the world. Seam reinforcements (scrim) are 100% graphite vs. graphite and fiberglass for all other materials (including the G. Loomis IMX, GL3, GL2, etc.).
Note: Neither the G. Loomis GLX and G. Loomis IMX fishing rods are painted; rather, they’re left in their virgin condition. GLX rods utilize a premium Fuji graphite composite rod seat, premium Fuji SiC guides or REC Recoil guides, and premium wraps and cork. Most importantly any GLX rod is almost unbelievably light weight, remarkably sensitive, and super powerful.

G. Loomis IMX Fishing Rods
G. Loomis IMX rods are wonderful rods. They have the Fuji Alconite guides, often a different reel seat. These rods are, perhaps, slightly less sensitive, and a bit heavier when compared to the GLX and NRX rods. Still, they’re powerful fishing rods.
The IMX rods are our most popular. They offer great bang-for-the-buck when compared to all other premium rods.
