NFC and Gary Loomis

New to the forum. I recently was told by a local outfitter that Gary Loomis is not involved in NFC again. I was told that he now has a second bout with cancer. I was on the Edge Rod Facebook page and they are seemingly just moving ahead. I was given an Edge rod as a gift this week and it's a beauty. Her is my question: Are NFC and Edge still working on blanks and is Gary still involved? What is the current status of Edge Rods?

Thanks. A lot of confusion regarding his status, and his relationship with NFC.

Tony,

These are all rumors. Gary is at NFC/Edge daily, travels to all the shows, and is currently working on our LMX X-ray blanks. Its a new generation blank that is lighter and stronger than anything we have ever introduced, which I hope we can announce next month. We have been busy, new factory, new patents, and new business lines - (gun barrels and antennas).

Tell your outfitter to pick up the phone and call the factory...he can ask to speak to Gary if he still has doubts.

Best,
Aleks
