ANGLER’S INSIGHT:
Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis 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 breakpoints 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.
