  1. The 9, 10 and 11-weights in this series are standouts and clear representatives of the Loomis design legacy. None would be considered “light,” nor particularly touch-oriented, but they are serious saltwater blasters for the angler who expects a fly rod to respond when called upon. The 990-4 has a sweet spot about 1/3 of the way down the blank that I recognize from some of the NRX+ saltwater models. I cast it with a Rio Elite Permit line and easily felt the rod load with most of the line head in the air. At this point, the stiff butt section launches the cast. It throws tight loops and will be an easy operator for someone who naturally casts with power or pairs it with a relatively heavy fly line, like a Permit Taper, SA Grand Slam, Rio Flats Pro or the range of popular striped bass lines.

  2. When jumping from the 890/4 IMX Pro V2S to the 990/4 you will immediately notice a difference. Where the 6, 7, and 8wt are all slightly softer than what you might expect from G Loomis, the 990/4 is unmistakably a classic G Loomis saltwater rod. It is powerful, predictable, and throws a remarkably tight loop. Unlike some other rods in the lineup that favor a slower casting stroke, this rod requires a quicker stroke to get the rod going. Once you get enough line out it is easy to shoot line and present the fly to the target. I cast this rod with the Rio Elite Permit line and found it to be a good pairing. I wouldn’t be afraid to fish something slightly heavier on this rod as well.
