G Loomis Asquith Spey Rod
Cast Further, Fish Better! G Loomis Designed The Asquith Spey Rod To Do This Better Than Any Other Rod This fast two handed rod makes a long day searching for Atlantic Salmon, Steelhead or other fish that requires a thousand casts seem easy. Speed and deep loading are the hallmarks of the Asquith Spey Rod. This allows for minimal effort for planting your fly whether using a floating Scandi head or a Skagit 600gr sink tip.
Using G Loomis' proprietary Spiral X technology as a starting point, Steve Rajeff has designed the most technologically advanced two handed rod available today. Light, powerful and beautiful all describe the Asquith, a rod designed for the serious fisherman who values economy of motion for those long days on the river.
The Asquith series is the culmination of global cooperation in design, materials, and manufacturing techniques. Built on Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X platform, the Asquith boasts superb power transfer from tip to hand, quick recovery, and increased sensitivity. Designed by world casting champion Steve Rajeff, the Asquith is an exploratory step into the future of rod manufacturing technology. With fast actions, generous power levels, titanium guides, and exceptionally light swing weight, all rods in the series excel in fishing situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts means success.
Shimano’s proprietary Spiral X technology utilizes triple layer construction consisting of an oblique fiber core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-oblique fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, providing virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.
