  1. Loomis designed this model as a big water stick that would be light enough to fish as your everyday fly rod. Indeed, it swings light for its length. The extra reach helps with distance casting, line mending, roll casting and lifting a long line off the water for your next cast. Like the other rods in this series, the NRX+ 595-4 has a refined, progressive taper that almost anyone will enjoy casting. Its fishing utility may be optimized with an SA Infinity Taper or other long-bellied fly line. The rod feels lightest and casts for the greatest distance with a Rio InTouch Gold or SA MPX taper, but the Infinity Taper is a more responsive fly line when the angler is at great distance from the fly.

  2. This is a very fascinating fly rod from Loomis. To me it feels like it was designed for technical tail waters where longer rods are often times advantageous. It has a lot of power in the butt section but also has a pretty soft tip for a longer rod. I found it to be a great over-head caster and would make for a really fun single hand spey rod. It is not the lightest 9’6” 5wt out there, but is not heavy by any means. It doesn’t throw the tightest loops, but that’s also not what it is designed to do. We cast this rod with the SA MPX taper but I personally think the SA Infinity taper would be a little better match. All in all, this would be a great longer 5wt tailwater stick.

  3. Longer length rods certainly have their purpose, especially for the hard core nymph enthusiasts. The notion they are made only for nymphing, however, has certainly been discredited by G Loomis with these new NRX + rods. I really enjoyed casting both the 595 and 5100. The 595 was noticeably softer in the tip vs the 590, but in a good way. It was super smooth and stable with nice loop control. The SA Infinity line was an excellent match for this longer 5 wt. I envision fishing it on bigger water like the Gunnison. Both roll casting and mending will be a dream with the softer tip. If a hatch does come off, don’t be shy about sticking with the 595. It’ll handle those surface patterns as well.

  4. This rod feels a little different from the rest of the NRX+ lineup. G.Loomis calls the rest of the lineup fast action and they call the NRX+ 595 medium fast. The 595 NRX+ is also the most specialized rod in this lineup and it is designed as a light tippet, small fly technical tailwater fly rod. The extra 6 inches gives you more reach and added ability to high stick through tricky seams off the tip. This 5-weight is very capable of handling light tippets in the 6X class with its supple tip and more limber profile. Think about #22s with 6X tippet fished from the surface to the bottom of the run. That is what this rod was designed to do. It gives the angler a longer reach with light flies and touch required to present these flies to highly selective fish. I give it 3.5 stars because the 5100 is so good and this rod isn’t exactly my speed in a 9-foot 6-inch 5-weight. If you’re a dedicated tailwater fisherman needing more reach with tippet protection check it out. There is no small fighting butt on this model.

  5. I didn’t give this rod enough credit when I cast the NRX+ rods for the first time. Not every rod casts as sweetly on the casting pond as it fishes. The NRX+ 595 is a very purposeful rod. Intended to be a technical trout tailwater tool, the rod is tuned for optimal performance inside of 60 feet. You can reach out further than that, but the rod does not encourage you to, but that isn’t what it is meant for. Precision in close and exacting performance at trout distances is what this rod is designed for. I would call this rod a work horse and with a Rio Elite Gold you can feel the rod load deeply and pleasantly along the entire blank at all ranges. The loop shape is more open than the other 5 weights we cast, but they were dead to rights level with good line speed. It doesn’t throw a power wedge as much as it throws a more powerful open loop. The rod’s taper works with the caster to minimize tailing loops and prevent tangles. The tip is supple enough for dry fly and emerger work and the butt section is easily accessible and has the strength to deliver nymph rigs seamlessly. This is the rod for the fly fisherman in the know that wants a specific rod to solve problems and fish more effectively in those scenarios.

  6. I really enjoyed this rod paired with the Rio Elite Technical Trout. What worries me is that this is the only line that made this rod light up for me. It casts tight, bullet like loops with a heavy swing weight. I think that it would be happiest whilst wading deep, throwing a large hopper dropper rig through a shelf full of feeding trout.

  7. This is the outlier in the NRX+ freshwater rod family. It is not nearly as stiff as the other rods and plays a little different role on the water. It’s a nymphing rod that focuses on feel rather than raw power. It is a very smooth casting rod that has great feel in close. The rod is not the lightest in the 9’6” 5wt category, but is still easy to throw all day. I’ve played around with a handful of different floating lines on the 595 and like both the Rio Elite Gold and SA Amplitude Infinity.
