At G. Loomis, we build tools that enhance natural ability, boost effectiveness, and expand tactical opportunity. We do this for the dawn patrollers. The mid-day grinders. The last-light renegades. For those that make time on the water a top priority. Introducing IMX-PRO V2 SHORTSPEY, a continuation of our 40-year commitment to provide anglers with actions that put the bug where your brain wants it every time.
Once considered a niche way to target fish, trout spey has become a proven tactic to secure success on the water. Granting the ability to cover large sections of river efficiently and effectively, lighter rods matched with modern line systems can be a difference-maker, especially when other methods leave anglers empty-netted. With progressive flex patterns, medium-fast spey actions, and pumped power levels, IMX-PRO V2 SHORTSPEY models jack casts like your favorite "big rod." A proprietary blend of technologies - Conduit Core and GL7 resin system – enhances positive feel, swing weight, and subtle subsurface bite detection.
That said, don't take it from us. Experience this diverse set of purpose-driven actions for yourself. Because, after all, actions speak louder than words.

Traditionally, as the blank diameter increases, so does the total amount of material used. This was the only way of ensuring strength/durability in the bottom half of the rod. Conduit Core technology removes excess wraps of graphite and replaces them with a proprietary material that’s of equal strength, but dramatically lighter in weight. Casters exert less energy to move the rod, increasing the efficiency of total energy required to manipulate the line when casting, mending, and animating flies.
Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis fly rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water.
While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
