If Accurate And Fast Is What You Need, Then The G Loomis Asquith Is The Fly Rod For You! If you are an angler who needs instant line speed with pinpoint accuracy then this perfectly designed rod is for you! Steve Rajeff took the precept of an all-water rod and developed one of the best casting and easy recovering pieces of equipment ever developed. With no specific fish in mind, Steve and G Loomis built this high-tech rod around their proprietary Spiral X technology. Ultralight with power to instantly turn the largest fish in the world, the Asquith was designed not for one species or environment. One cast to a tailing redfish or to a lurking steelhead will convince you that your choice to go with the Asquith was one of the best you ever made. The only question that you will have is; "Why isn't everyone else copying G Loomis?"
This rod is in EXCELLENT condition!!! Barely used and still has powder on the cork! It also comes with its original rod tube and sock!
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.
