G-Loomis Greenwater Series Saltwater Rods
G. Loomis Greenwater Series Saltwater Rods
The G. Loomis Greenwater Series Saltwater rods are not your normal shallow-water rods - these are high performance spinning and casting rods designed to fish in the skinny water where the fish come to eat. And how often do you find rods that are not only made for a very specific fishery, but also reflect that image in the color of the blank.
G. Loomis Greenwater core models feature G. Loomis' proprietary ''fiber blend technology'' and have Fuji chrome Alconite guides. Three other models offer the ultimate in light weight and sensitivity with G. Loomis' proprietary GLX performance. They feature the light and virtually indestructible Recoil guides.
G. Loomis Greenwater rods may be divided into three groups:
- ''standard'' Greenwater rods (GWR) for fishing live or cut bait
- ''popping'' Greenwater rods (GWPR) for bait or small soft plastics
- ''magnum taper'' Greenwater rods (GWMR) for fishing spoons, soft plastic jerkbaits and jigs
G. Loomis Greenwater Series Saltwater Rods - Application Details
A fast-action casting rod designed to fish soft jerkbaits, small jigs and live bait. A great choice for fishing in close cover and around the mangroves for snook, small stripers and redfish, it has plenty of reserve power to keep big fish away from trouble. If you like to fish topwater baits, this would make a great choice!
A fast-action casting rod designed to fish soft jerkbaits, jigs and live bait. It's a good choice for fishing the edges of cover for those saltwater species that invade shallow water flats such as snook, schoolie stripers or redfish. The 7-foot length allows you to make longer casts and fish slightly deeper water. It is unbelievably strong and has plenty of power to handle big fish, surprisingly big fish if you're lucky enough to hook up.
A medium-light casting rod designed to fish shrimp or soft plastics for bonefish, small reds and specks in shallow water with sufficient power to fish the edges of the cover. It is made with G. Loomis' proprietary ''fiber blend technology'' which gives you a nice blend of sensitivity and light weight. A really good rod for fishing the new super braids like Power Pro.
A little more powerful casting rod designed to fish live bait, it makes a really good choice for the deeper flats and bigger fish. You might call this an oversized popping rod, but it has a faster action. It is a good rod for permit, Crevelle jacks and big reds. It will handle small crabs and baitfish. Made with G. Loomis' ''fiber blend technology'', it has good sensitivity and is very light!
A light duty spinning rod for fishing shrimp, small spoons or light jigs, it has a nice soft tip with a moderate-fast taper that provides protection for lighter line. It has a powerful butt-section to help with the hookset and keep the pressure on whatever eats your bait. This is a great rod for specks, flounder and other skittish skinny water critters.
A 6'6'' fast-action spinning rod designed to fish soft plastics and jigs around heavy cover for snook, redfish and small tarpon where tight quarters dictate the need for a shorter rod. It has a very powerful butt-section and medium-heavy tip so it is a great choice for fishing weedless rigs like soft jerkbaits where you need to drive the hook through the plastic and into the fish. A lot like fishing a plastic worm for bass.
A light duty popping rod designed to fish shrimp or small jigs in shallow water applications. The upper half of this rod is very soft and forgiving to allow anglers to drop lightly weighted shrimp in front of cruising bonefish and specks with minimal splash... with or without a popping cork. It's made with G. Loomis' proprietary ''fiber blend technology'' which provides an excellent balance of sensitivity and lightweight.
- GWMR843S GLX
A 7' fast-action spinning rod designed to fish jigs and larger soft plastic. The extra length makes a huge difference for casting distance and lure/line control, especially when a fish grabs your lure at the end of a long cast. It will be a good choice for more open water situations where you still need the power to keep fish away from snags and cover. GLX makes this rod incredibly light in weight and you'll have to experience the sensitivity to believe it.
A spinning style popping rod designed to fish shrimp or soft plastics for bonefish, small reds and specks in shallow water. It offers a bit more power, allowing you to fish slightly heavier line and a little closer to the cover. It is made with G. Loomis' proprietary ''fiber blend technology'' which provides an excellent balance of sensitivity and lightweight.
An exceptional all around spinning rod designed to fish soft plastics, light jigs and spoons where long casts are necessary for success. This is a powerful rod that will handle redfish, permit and snook. Whether you wade or fish from a boat this rod gives you positive hooksets and total fish-fighting control thanks to the magnum taper and strong butt-section. You can hold this rod, with the tip up and just slowly shake it to create an unbelievable "dog walking" action with almost any stick bait.
- GWR901S GLX
A more powerful spinning rod designed to fish live bait and soft plastics, this is a great choice for the deeper flats and the bigger fish that inhabit them. It makes a good choice for permit, snook and big reds. It's a nice rod for fishing small crabs and baitfish. Thanks to the sensitivity of GLX, you can almost feel a fish look at your bait.
A more powerful spinning rod designed to fish live bait and soft plastics, it makes a really good choice for the deeper flats and bigger fish. It is a good choice for permit, small jacks and big reds. It will handle small crabs and has enough power to handle those oversized surprises. Made with G. Loomis' ''fiber blend technology'', it is light and sensitive!
A good choice for fishing shrimp and soft plastics in clear water where you need to stay back off the fish. It works exceptionally well for ''fly lining'' live bait to spooky fish and will give you excellent casting range and accuracy. When the bite gets tough and downsizing your bait seems your only alternative, this rod can handle it.
- GWR941S GLX
When the water gets a bit deeper and the fish a bit bigger we look for a little more power and a little more control. This rod not only extends your casting range due to the extra length, but it creates a bigger tip arc when you set the hook so you're moving a lot more line with the same effort as that of a shorter rod. It has a magnum taper and that means a lot more power when you really need to give them the ''no treatment''. GLX makes this rod extremely light and unbelievably sensitive.
A powerful rod for fishing bigger baits and up to 20-pound line, this rod will cast a jig or a small pinfish a country mile and there's plenty of power left to set the hook and handle fish from long distance. Whether you're pitching crabs to cruising permit or casting spoons for big reds, this rod will keep you in total control. It's made with G. Loomis' ''fiber blend technology'' creating a nice blend of power, light weight and sensitivity.
