Our choice of the best 10-weight rod is the G. Loomis Asquith. The 10-weight feels almost like the older 8-weight in my hand, but it has the same kind of explosive power and fish fighting ability we have come to expect from the Loomis rods. The Asquith10-weight is a very versatile rod, perfect for mid-sized tarpon, big permit, big cudas, big jacks and a variety of other gamefish. This rod has the butt power to land 100 lb. tarpon but is delicate enough to put that perfect cast in front of a permit sixty feet away. The NVG 9-10, designed by Nautilus, is the reel that we feel pairs best with this heavy-hitting rod.
The NVG 9-10 has just as much muscle as the NRX and will stop just about anything that you hook into. With its buttery smooth sealed drag its a breeze to adjust on the fly without worrying about breaking the fish of your dreams off. It has plenty of capacity for line and over 200 yds of Hatch 68 lb PE backing which really finishes the Outfit off right.
