This summer, the revolutionary PRO4x ShortStix fly rod from G. Loomis received the award for Best New Fly Rod at the 2014 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Tackle.

The 7’ 6” fast-action rod is designed to make 80’-plus casts with less effort than traditional 9’ rods. Paired with the new generation of short-head fly lines, the PRO4x loads easily and offers exceptional casting distance, especially with big, bulky flies. In the Northeast, the rod is ideal for striped bass, bluefish, false albacore and bonito.

The four 3-piece ShortStix fly rods are lighter and stronger than traditional rods of the same weight. Models include an 8/9 weight for use with 300- to 350-grain fly lines; a 9/10 weight for 375- to 425-grain lines; a 10/11 weight for 425- to 475-grain lines; and an 11/12 weight for 475- to 525-grain weights.

All 4 rods in the ShortStix series feature K-frame stripper guides to reduce tangles when shooting line. The two larger rods also feature integrated fighting grips for more power and better fish control.

Price: $400 – $425
