Most anglers want to have the best performing rod, regardless of price or warranty costs; the G. Loomis Asquith is it!  The G. Loomis Asquith 9′#5, winner of our 2020 5-weight Power Performance Only Category, matched or outscored the rest of the Power Rods at every distance. Rolled with G. Loomis’ Spiral-X technology, the Asquith provides the power, line speed, and loop stability expected from modern fast-action rods while still maintaining feel, finesse, and a light swing weight. Not only does the Asquith have the lightest swing weight of all the Power 5-weights tested, we know from experience that it is also one of the strongest most durable rods in the Shootout.

Features on the Asquith +

  • Single foot ReCOIL guides
  • Titanium SiC stripping guides
  • Spiral-X Technology
  • High quality cork grip with a half wells shape
  • Stunning bamboo insert with gray anodized up-lock reel seat
  • Handcrafted in Woodland, WA – U.S.A.

We pair the G. Loomis Asquith with the Galvan Torque 5 reel and the Scientific Angler Amplitude MPX WF5F fly line. The Torque 5 has been our go-to freshwater reel for the last couple of years. Lightweight, incredibly durable, and a buttery smooth drag make the Galvan Torque our ultimate freshwater reel. The disk drag has a HUGE range of adjustment from zero to over 15 lbs! The Torque comes in 5 color options: clear (silver), black, green, blue, and orange.

Scientific Anglers Amplitude MPX fly line has also been our go-to freshwater floating fly line for the last few seasons and the line we used in our 2020 5-weight Power Shootout. Developed around a half-size heavyweight forward floating line, the MPX will help load your rod more smoothly and efficiently.
