The G. Loomis 7130-4 Asquith is the all around fast action rod for steelhead and Atlantic salmon in medium to larger rivers. This rod is able to cast flies from tiny waking dries to larger weighted intruders. It performs superbly with Skagit lines in the 500 to 525 grain weight range, as well as Scandi lines weighing 450-grains.
Forged from cutting-edge technology and legendary design. Developed and hand-finished in Woodland, Washington and rolled in the world's only Spiral X production facility in Kumamoto, Japan. Introducing Asquith: the most technologically advanced fly rod in the world. Shimano's proprietary Spiral-X technology utilizes a core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-axis fiber outer layer. This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, reduces ovalization, and provides virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish.
