G.Loomis NRX spinning rod and bait caster preview at ICAST 2010 and other goodies

I had a chance to check some of the new toys at the ICAST just now. One of the most anticipated rods making it’s entrance at this show is the new G.Looms NRX series of rods. Though they did not show the Fly rods at this show I did check out the 2 they did have out. One was a 6′ 10″ spinning rod and the other was a 7′ 1″ baitcasting.

bait caster
NRX 853c JWR

NRX 822s DSR

Both rods were split grip. 1/2 of the guides were recoil guides and both were super light!
They also shared a price tag of $475.00

The other items I show I haven’t had much time to write about but I will when I get a chance to talk to reps more about them.
