Product Description

G.Loomis  NRX+ 790-4 Saltwater fly rod

9’0″ 7-wt, 4-pc rod with aluminum case and cloth liner



  1. This rod swings and casts like a tight loop dry fly rod.  The 7, 8 and 9 is this series possess similar qualities.  They feel great in hand and are extremely light for their line classes.  This is a stiff fly rod, however, clearly designed for aggressive casting and heavy headed lines.  I first cast it with an SA Saltwater Taper, which wasn’t heavy enough to load the rod completely.  It threw nice little dry fly loops, but this is a saltwater rod that needs to flex into the mid section to generate the kind of horsepower required for blasting casts into heavy wind.  I came back with a Rio Direct Core Bonefish 7-weight, which was much better.  A Rio Flats Pro line would probably be the best overall match in terms of rod loading and general purpose fishing performance.

  2. This is a very smooth casting 7 with just the right amount of power. It possesses a lot of character. You can feel the rod load very well and it is very intuitive. It has a lot of feel in close and really drives with 30+ feet of line out. I cast this with a generic SA Saltwater taper and it made the rod feel like a trout stick. With a more refined saltwater line like the Rio DirectCore Flats Pro, the power of this rod really starts to show up. With the more aggressive taper, this rod can really send line. I would highly recommend the 790 NRX+ for anyone looking for a lightweight, powerful 7 for bonefish.

  3. There are a lot of excellent 9 foot 7 weights out there right now and G.Loomis has added another excellent rod to consider. The NRX+ 790 is a big improvement over its predecessor and the rod makes for an excellent do-everything 7-weight. This rod is as capable throwing trout streamers as a Crazy Charlie. Loomis has produced a 7-weight that is smooth casting, very stable and highly versatile. The rod is playful and light casting with a bonefish line and confident and powerful with a heavier weight forward head for throwing wind resistant and heavy flies. The NRX+ 790 is an excellent compliment to the rest of the NRX+ lineup and picks up right where the NRX+ 690 leaves off in terms of ability to carry more line with a bigger fly in tougher conditions.
