Details

My all time favorite tarpon rod was the G. Loomis 9 foot #11 Crosscurrent GLX, but now that the new Loomis NRX rods are here, it sure makes sense to spend the extra $65 and step up to the best big rod we've seen and cast, the NRX. The NRX rods are 20% stronger and 20% lighter than the older rods, and when you get this new #11 rod in your hand, there is a huge difference in weight. This rod has the same kind of power the CrossCurrent GLX produced but it is even smoother to cast. Belting out 100-foot casts is going to be even easier now the way this NRX fires out beautiful, controlled tight loops. The action is similar to the GLX but the tip seems slightly softer, allowing for better control on short distance casts to laid up fish. Line size is somewhat of a personal preference. A WF-11-F works a little better at mid to long distances, while a WF-12-F is a shade better in close if you want to get the rod loaded more quickly. This rod has tons of butt power and landing tarpon in the 125-150 lb. class is not going to take long!

 

The NV Monster is the reel of choice for landing the largest fish on the planet. It's got the tried and true Nautilus sealed disk drag that can put the heat on the big boys and the strength and rigidity to hold up to the brute power of huge tarpon and voracious GTs. The spool can hold enough backing that the fish will probably just give up before it spools you. We rig all these saltwater lines with our special spliced loop in the back of the line, and loop-to-loop this to the backing with a blind spliced loop to give you 100% knot strength. This also makes it very easy to change lines out on the water. Then we install a butt section of 60 lb. Seaguar fluorocarbon with our special TTTK over wrapped and super-glued needle knot. This is one butt section you'll never have come loose!
