For the needs of the SCANDINAVIAN style of casting, G Loomis offer the ROARINGRIVER STINGER series
The Scandinavian style of two-hand casting was developed in the 1960s. Anglers schooled on the famous salmon and sea-trout 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 requires a much shorter, much faster stroke with more emphasis on the lower hand during the cast – sometimes referred to as the ‘under-hand’ style. The Stinger Series was originally designed as 3-piece but Loomis has re-designed them as 4-piece for better transportation.
These rods’ actions remain fast and powerful to help casters create narrow, aerodynamic loops using the underhand-dominated casting stroke. Their fast tapers allow you to make overhead casts as long as there is sufficient room for a back cast as on a promontory or gravel bar, generating incredible line speed for unbelievable distance. Stinger GLX rods feature Recoil guides, the best species-cork available and Loomis’ special ‘Yin-Yang’ machined reel seat with ivory-style insert and scrimshaw Spey-style 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.
