G. Loomis GLX Stinger Two-Hand Fly Rod

Availability: In stock

The Scandinavian style of two-hand casting was developed in the 1960's. Anglers schooled on the famous salmon and seatrout rivers of Norway and Sweden cast shooting tapers, floating or intermediate shooting heads of 30-45 feet, with mono running line. Instead of holding a fixed length of line as in traditional casting, anglers shoot the entire line in one stroke. This technique uses a much shorter, faster stroke with more emphasis on the lower hand during the cast, sometimes referred to as the "underhand" style.


Our Stinger Series was originally designed as 3-piece rods, but this year we redesigned them in 4-piece for improved transportability. We also gave them a new name… STINGER GLX. The rod actions remain fast and powerful to help casters create narrow, aerodynamic loops using this underhand dominated casting stroke. Their fast tapers allow you to make overhead casts as long as there is sufficient room for a back cast like on a gravel bar, generating incredible line speed for unbelievable distance - something you might consider for casting from the beach for saltwater species. Because the physical weight of the line reflects the true rating for each rod, we’ve converted our traditional line-size system to grains and grams for a more universal rating convention. Stinger GLX rods feature Recoil guides, the best species-cork available and our exclusive "yin yang" machined reel seat with ivory-style insert and scrimshaw spey fly graphic. The handle shape has been refined, using a slim diameter, extended full-wells profile with a small composite cork butt-cap, giving it a nice finished look as well as providing durability. Each rod comes with a soft, protective rod sock and travel case.


G. Loomis FR156-4 Stinger GLX 32g/500gr Two-Hand

4 Piece | Length: 13' | Line Weight: 32g/500gr | Power: Med-Stiff | Taper: Fast | Handle: B | MPN: 11817-01

G. Loomis FR156-4 Stinger GLX 32g/500gr Two-Hand is a crisp casting 13-footer that, under our old rating system would be an 8/9, but since the shooting heads for the Scandinavian style of casting are rated by their actual weight, we rate them in grams for Europe and Grains for the North American market. It's designed to cast short heads Scandi-style, but is very capable of handling a wide variety of casting styles with the proper lines. It's a great all-purpose rod for salmon and steelhead, giving you a little more distance with larger flies, even in the wind.

G. Loomis FR181-4 Stinger GLX 45g/700gr Two-Hand is at the top of the two-hand food chain. This is the mega monster two-hand rod capable of handling long heads of up to 45' and those large, air-resistant tube flies used in the big rivers of Norway, Finland and Sweden. It's made to handle the biggest salmon on the planet! With no natural enemies like heavy wind or high water, this rod will get the job done where a lesser rod will make line management a lot of work. Excellent line control for big mends in the fast runs where the big fish hold make this our top choice for large rivers and their most demanding "part-time" residents.
