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 Rod GWMR783S
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.

Best Rod I own
April 29, 2020
This rod is nothing short of exceptional. It is a versatile rod that isn't just ok or "so-so" for a number of applications but truly a great rod for back bay fluking, striper fishing, sea bass jigging and my favorite as a tog jigging rod. Can't say enough good things.
ConsNone

Great rod until...
January 31, 2020
This rod was great used it a lot for sheepshead because it was so sensitive and the bamboo felt great in the hand. But after about 3 years of use we were carrying it and hits something and the tip snapped. This was our fault completely but many rods I have used don’t snap when you hit a wall accidentally

G Loomis Lifetime Warranty a joke
March 5, 2019
Great rod, until it snapped into 3 pieces fighting a small fish. G Loomis refused to replace under their lifetime warranty, but instead "offered" a 3-figure replacement cost. The lifetime warranty isn't worth the paper it's written on.
Prosgreat feel lightweight nice rod til it broke
ConsG Loomis warranty is useless Replacement cost under warranty is more than competitive rods

This is one of the best G Loomis rods I have owned. The fast taper tip flex and speed is just right for versatile fishing anywhere from 10-20lb. It will work well pitching plastics, casting live bait or crank baits. Very light weight. I just need to make sure my kids don't break it as these are pricey!

Worth the price

I surf fish but purchased this rod to use on the pier. This rod is super-sensitive, even when paired to a spinning reel. On the surf, it performed equally well, on a calm day with only a 2 oz sinker.
The only down side to some may be the one-piece construction of this 8â€â"˘6†rod which may be an issue to some. However, the sensitivity offered by this rod outweighs the issue of transporting and/or storing.
ProsSuper sensitive. Light weight.
ConsOne-piece construction makes it cumbersome to transport to a pier.

Do it all rod
November 7, 2014
The GWR901S can effectively throw any lure in your tackle box and tame any inshore or freshwater species. If I was blindfolded and told that I would be taken fishing without knowing where or what I was targeting, I would take this rod. These Mag-Medium Greenwaters can do anything. Awesome craftsmanship as to be expected from G.Loomis.
