G.Loomis‘s new Pro-4X fly rods were named the winner in the ICAST New Product Showcase ‘best new fly rod’ category at a special awards ceremony Wednesday evening.

“What a great follow-up to last year when we were recognized with a many honors for our NRX fly rods,” said G.Loomis’ chief rod designer Steve Rajeff. “This just shows fly anglers —and fly dealers—our commitment to bringing our best in technology, materials and design to our fly rod line-up.”

The Pro-4X fly rod series includes rods for trout, salmon/steelhead and saltwater fishing, ranging from a short, delicate, eight-foot, 3-weight for small flies in small water, a powerful, nine-foot, 8-weight to handle winds on the flats, and a 10-foot 7-weight for long-cast needed steelhead rivers.

Other winners in the fly fishing category were VestPac’s new DriftPac and the Temple Fork Outfitters BVK fly reel.
