Combining G. Loomis’ original actions with Shimano’s premier rod-building technology, the Shimano G. Loomis Conquest Rods deliver the absolute pinnacle of performance. A joint development between the two companies, the Shimano G. Loomis Conquest Rods utilise Shimano’s cutting-edge Spiral-X technology to prevent blank twists, while increasing casting distance and accuracy. Giving anglers the power necessary to stop big fish, the Shimano G. Loomis Conquest Rods’ Spiral-X/Hi-Power technology offers increased leverage for better hook sets and fish-fighting power. Complete with high-performance Torzite guides form Fuji, the Shimano G. Loomis Conquest Rods offer unshakable durability and effortless line management. For added comfort and connection, the Shimano G. Loomis Conquest Rods are fitted with a custom reel seat and blank-through handles, which enhance sensitivity and grip.

This is the description.Shimano’s 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.
Spiral X construction consists of three layers: an inner and outer layer of seamless Infinity Tape tightly wound diagonally in opposite directions, and a layer of vertical fibers called Muscle Carbon in between. Utilizing Infinity Tape in place of a traditional sheet of horizontal fibers reduces overall weight and creates actions with superior torsional rigidity and hoop strength.
