G. Loomis IMX Pro Fly Rod

John Garrett talks about the new IMX trout series

John Garret - Veteran Guide: Gorge Fly Shop Product Specialist covers the G. Loomis IMX Pro Series and puts it to the test in the video above.

Hey guys this is John from the Gorge Fly Shop and I'm here to talk to you about the new G. Loomis IMX Pro single hand trout fly rods. Many time world champion caster and rod designer Steve Rajeff and Tom Larimer teamed up to create a rod that meets the demands of professional guides that is durable, powerful, and yet affordable without sacrificing quality feel or performance. 

From this collaboration the IMX Pro Series was born. 

Maybe you're working that tight seam up against the far bank with your favorite nymph setup or maybe you're tossing ridiculous sized streamers at Western trout there is definitely an IMX Pro fly rod (singlehand) for you. For me the IMX Pro is light in all the right spots. This is due to the new G. Loomis Conduit Core Technology. These rods have you covered whether fishing with small flies and delicate long leader presentations or casting big foam stone flies into the wind.

Traditionally as the blank diameter increases so does the total amount of material being used. This was the only way of ensuring durability and strength in the bottom half of the rod, until now.

The Conduit Core technology allows G. Loomis to remove areas of graphite that are not needed while maintaining durability, specifically for each purpose-driven model. This improves positive feel, balance and helps fight fatigue.
