2020 took us down to Florida to test the latest and greatest 8 weight rods on the market. After a couple of weeks of casting, fishing and crunching the numbers the new G. Loomis NRX + was crowned the winner of our 2020 8 Weight Challenge. The new lightweight, smooth and powerful G.Loomis NRX+ is the workhorse of general purpose saltwater fly rods. Packing an insane amount of power and performance this rod has the punch and accuracy you’ll need to make any cast out on the flats.

Our pick for the top 8-weight reel to match up with the G. Loomis is the Nautilus NV-G 7/8.  We have found that this reel has a ton of capacity, using tHatch 68 lb. backing, to hold 200 yards plus a WF-8-F line.  The Nautilus waterproof, sealed drag system is one of the best in the business.  With absolutely no start-up inertia, this is the smoothest drag system we have found on any saltwater reel.  These are beautiful reels that use a quick-change system, so changing spools is quick and easy. The G-series spools have a very wide arbor, so you retrieve more line on each crank of the spool. Black and Silver are the standard colors, but many custom color options are available. Call the shop for details.
