Built to the unrelenting specifications of professional fishing guides, the IMX-PRO series is comprised of 15 purpose-driven designs to meet the performance demands of modern freshwater fishing. Striking the ultimate balance of handsome appointments, positive feel, and unflinching durability, IMX-PRO is a game-changing addition to the serious angler’s quiver.
We recently tested the IMX Pro and really put it through the wringer out here on the Yellowstone. We tested the single hand rods as well as the new short speys and, as G.Loomis says, everyone needs to make room for a few of these rods. It’s no NRX LP but that’s a good thing for Loomis since they already hit that one out of the park. This rod series is designed for the angler that wants a little more power, throws bigger flies, and needs a stiffer tip to lift big fish or sink tips. They’ve come up with a recipe that fills that order perfectly with the IMX PRO and at this price, it’s a great value as well.
Guides and people who often fish from boats or don’t do much traveling with their rods will love the 1 pc streamer rods, they offer huge amounts of smooth power and great accuracy thanks in part to the slightly shorter length.
If you’re looking for the perfect trout spey check out the 11′ 11 inch 5wt short spey, they’ve got a deep bending action with lots of power and a nice stiff tip that feels like a true Skagit rod while still being crisp and light in hand. We found that a head between 350 and 400 grains fit the rod really well.
