Asquith Shimano technology and G. Loomis fly rod expertise takes a step in unison to bring a unique concept to fly anglers worldwide in a new series of fly rods called Asquith. The line-up includes nine all-water rods in nine-foot 4 through 12 weights, and five spey rods offered in a 129 #6, 13 #7, 136 #8, 14 #9 and 15 #10. With blanks rolled using Shimanos proprietary Spiral X process at its production facility in Kumamoto, Japan, and then hand-finished at the G. Loomis facility in Woodland, Washington.

Anglers will find the Asquith series to be the most technologically advanced fly rods in the world. With fast actions and generous power levels, the Asquith rods excel in situations where developing high line speed and making precise casts means success. The rods are built and designed for demanding conditions and technical fishing environments - the culmination of these efforts to provide anglers with fly rods that offer exceptional casting distance, pinpoint accuracy, a lighter that expected blank and reduced blank twist.

The proprietary Spiral X technology creates a rod blank utilizing Shimanos carbon fiber Infinity Tape core layer, a longitudinal middle layer of Musclecarbon to form a base structure to improve efficiency and performance, and then finished with a reverse-axis Infinity Taper outer layer. This patented construction process increases rod rigidity to reduce twist without adding weight.

Spiral X also allows for a thin wall blank, and reduces rod ovalization even when under the load of a big steelhead, striper or tarpon. The Asquith 4 through 6 weights performed best when matched with either Airflo Elite or Scientific Anglers Mastery Trout lines. For freshwater situations with up to the 8-weight Asquith, Rajeff suggests the Airflo Exceed and Streamer Float, while the 7 through 12 weights in the salt call for an Airflo Tropical Punch or Scientific Anglers Mastery Bonefish Taper and Mastery Tarpon Taper lines. Spiral X : Shimanos proprietary Spiral X technology utilizes triple layer construction consisting of an oblique fiber core layer, a longitudinal middle layer, and a reverse-oblique fiber outer layer.

This unique construction increases rigidity without increasing weight, providing virtually instantaneous power transmission when casting or fighting a fish. The world's most advanced fly rod. Incredibly light and unbelievably strong, the most extreme level of saltwater fly rod performance. Fast, dynamic tapers provide incredible casting distance, true tracking and consistent accuracy. Titanium SIC Sea Guide strippers with REC Recoil snake guides.

Full wells flor grade cork grip. #4, #5 and #6 feature custom bamboo/aluminum reel seats.

#7 through #12 come with saltwater-friendly aluminum reel seats with Shimanos lightweight CI4+ material inserts for both lighter weight and added durability. #6 through #10 Asquith spey rods have Snake brand double-plated chrome snake guides. Loomis 4-piece fly rods come with a soft, protective rod sock and travel tube.
