G. Loomis Nativerun GLX Single Spey Rods
While not true two-hand rods, these two NativeRun GLX rods give you the option of reaching water you normally can't with a traditional single hander. Crafted with our proprietary GLX graphite, nickel titanium RECOIL guides, our new custom reel seats and the finest Portuguese cork, these rods offer about a foot more of all the best available in a steelhead fly rod. Native Run GLX Series Model Line Weight Power Taper Handle Price FR1327-4-NR-SS NativeRun GLX Single Spey 7 Med-Stiff Med-Fast 162 $685 11feet of pure single hand casting control and pleasure! For anglers interested in a crossover rod between single and two-hand spey rods, you can do it all with this rod. As conditions and back cast space allows, you may overhead cast while wading deep, and get to distances thought reserved for experts only. We suggest using a long belly weight forward intended for single-hand rods for this sort of casting. When backcasting is limited, or if you prefer, using a #5/6 short belly spey line will let you single hand spey cast with ease, providing incredible line control and distance. The combination of a small single haul and the spey casting motion will enable you to cover water you may have thought only possible with 14' rods and longer. FR1328-4-NR-SS NativeRun GLX Single Spey 8 Med-Stiff Med-Fast 162 $695 This is a heavier version of the 11' 7wt. When back cast space is limited, consider using a #6/7 short belly spey line, which allows this rod to shine in its ability to spey cast, and provides enormous mending control. Rod actions can be described as progressive medium fast taper, with a medium stiff rating. As above, the combination of a small single haul and the spey casting motion will enable you to cover water you may have thought only possible with 14' rods and longer, yet you'll be pleasantly surprised what you will feel once you hook up!
