Product Description

G.Loomis  NRX+ 1190-4 Saltwater fly rod

9’0″ 11-wt, 4-pc rod with aluminum case and cloth liner



  1. This is my favorite heavy saltwater rod in the series, the one that feels lightest and smoothest relative to its line weight.  It’s a long range 11-weight, casting best in the 50-90 foot range.  It feels fantastic at that distance, but many tarpon shots are shorter.  When conditions allow for long casts, it will excel.  The 10, 11 and 12-weights in this series feel like they were designed for fishing with the SA Grand Slam Taper and other load-and-shoot style saltwater lines.  The Bruce Chard taper and Rio Outbound lines are good pairings.  Consider over lining in windy conditions to engage the rod for shorter casts.

  2. The 1190 NRX+ is a great tarpon stick! It is much lighter than the previous 11wt NRX and is a much better caster all round. Though it is not the best in close, it really comes alive with 40+ feet of line out. It is very similar to the 10 and 12 in the sense that it doesn’t have the feel of the 7, 8, or 9, but that’s not what this rod is designed for. This is a powerful, long shot kind of rod. It is not designed for tight mangrove style tarpon fishing, but rather will be happiest in open water and will perform great in windy situations. For quick shots, the SA Grand Slam is a great line choice.

  3. The action of the NRX+ 1190 resembles the NRX+ 9-weight more than the 10-weight and reminds me of the GLX rods. This rod is certainly lighter in the hand than the GLX and is a much more castable rod than both the GLX and the NRX, but it still possesses that stout and solid feel that old school Loomis fans adore. The NRX+ feels like a fishing tool and is capable of strong, confident, uncompromising casting in the correct hands. You have to stay tuned with this rod through the cast, but for the right angler this rod is excellent.
