  1. Amazingly similar to the 4100-4, the NRX+ 5100-4 is an astounding pure caster for a trout rod of this length. The 10’ rods in this series are truly impressive. I really expected them to feel heavy, but they do not. As with the 4100, my favorite line on this rod is the SA MPX WF5F.

  2. This is a wonderfully smooth casting 10’ 5wt rod. It is light in hand and very stable. I found it very easy to manipulate the loop shape with lots of line out. It has a lot of power in the butt section and a nice stiff tip. I cast this rod with the SA MPX taper on it and was very pleased. The SA Infinity would also be a great option on there. It’s an absolute cannon! This would make for a great rod for any angler that likes longer rods for trout fishing.

  3. Take notice of the NRX+ 10-foot trout rods. They are remarkable. Like the NRX+ 4100, the 5100 is exceptional for its line weight and length. This model is very easy overhead and unlike many 10-foot single hand rods, you do not have to change your casting stroke to accommodate the extra length in the blank. This rod tracks and unloads like a 9-footer. Setup for a roll cast and you know you’re holding a 10-foot rod, this thing can reach out with limited room behind you. I think the 4100 is where I would go for a 10-foot trout rod, but for anglers fishing large rivers, bigger nymph rigs or stillwaters with streamers from a float tube, the NRX+ 5100 is your stick. A very impressive 10-foot 5-weight from the Loomis team, the NRX+ 5100 features aluminum uplocking hardware and a small fighting butt that looks just right on the rod.

  4. The NRX+ 5100 was the stiffest feeling and casting 10-foot 5-weight in the lineup. That is not a bad thing at all, but it has a more distinct fast and stiffer rod feel than the NRX+ 4100. Like all the 10-foot 5-weights we cast, the SA Amplitude Infinity was the preferred line and really made this rod perform at its best. The Rio Technical Trout was a surprising match as well and felt very connected, well matched and only a shade tight. The Tech Trout made the rod feel lighter through the cast and formed very stable, tight loops. The SA Infinity just got a little more out of the rod and made it feel animated in hand compared to the other lines. Close, far and in between were all intuitive and the feeling of control with line leaving the tip of the rod was wonderful.

  5. This rod makes Heavy Metal fishing enjoyable. I have a friend that likes to relate fishing lots of split shot and the biggest nymphs you can find in fast water to Heavy Metal music. This is a Heavy Metal nymphing rod. It is not graceful or elegant, but that is not what you are looking for when you crank up the Heavy Metal. This is a rod that would be a perfect tool for finding the biggest of rainbows in the fastest of water, with a lot of split shot and the largest of nymphs. Accompany this rod with the SA Amplitude Infinity taper and go “Heavy Metal fishing.”

  6. Similar to the NRX+ 4100/4, the 5100/4 is outstanding. It is surprisingly light in hand yet extremely powerful. It throws a really tight loop for a longer rod as long as you lengthen your stroke just a bit. This a great rod for both stillwater fishing and river fishing. It is a good overhead caster that can bomb line out but will still perform well in close. I’ve messed around with several fly lines on the 5100 and the SA Amplitude Infinity is the absolute best pairing.
