G. Loomis GL2 Crankbait Rod Descriptions
A great all around open-water crankbait rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits of all styles… shallow runners, lipless cranks and small deep-divers. A great shallow to medium-depth bait rod, especially where accuracy is more important than distance. It works well in close quarters due to the shorter length. It loads easily, is extremely lightweight and has more than enough power to handle big fish.
A combination of a little more power and the ability to fish a broader range of crankbaits makes this an excellent choice for fishing jerkbaits, lipless-vibrating baits and square bills. It doesn't have the range of the longer rods, but it's excellent when fishing in close-quarters, especially where you need a little more power to keep fish away from weed edges, shore cover and brush.
When you start fishing slightly larger lures, especially around more cover where you may need a little more power, this rod is a great choice for all styles and sizes of crankbaits. It's a great choice for fishing 1/2-ounce Traps & Spots with the versatility to cover a lot of water and manage large fish. Fish this rod over grass, around brush and sawgrass with little fear of losing fish to the cover. It has a surprising amount of power for such a subtle, soft-action rod.
A 7' one-piece rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits. It's a great rod for deep-diving lures like a Fat Free Shad or Wiggle Wart, and will throw a Rat-L-Trap or a Lucky Craft LVR that proverbial country mile. It's stout enough to handle big largemouth, but light enough to fish smallmouth baits with maximum accuracy and control. The extra length really helps with longer casts and fish-fighting control.
When you have to resort to deep-diving crankbaits to dredge up a bass or two, this is the rod you'll want. It's extremely light, so sensitive you can feel a big bass watch your bait and so responsive, you're ready for every move they make. It's designed with a slower action to allow your bait to work properly and absorb any move the fish makes. It's a great, long-distance casting rod for medium-sized deep-divers of 5/8's ounce or less and is surprisingly powerful.
When you're throwing large, oversized deep-divers like a 3/4-ounce Fat Free Shad or a DD-22, this is a rod you'll really appreciate. It's got the power to make extremely long casts, fish the baits as deep as they can run and handle any sized fish. An excellent choice for fishing the grass and over humps in deep-water situations. Will handle small swimbaits as well as any rod we make and talk about long-distance casts... this is the ''cat's meow''!!
