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
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.
The only down side to some may be the one-piece construction of this 8â€™6â€ rod which may be an issue to some. However, the sensitivity offered by this rod outweighs the issue of transporting and/or storing.
This rod is an absolute dream. It is light, well made, the guides do not have ceramic to break, and it is also beautiful. The sensitivity is mind blowing. The mag taper tip gives the top foot of the rod a nice whippy action for excellent casting while leaving the rest of the rod length with its required backbone.
I paired this stud up with a Stradic 3000 Ci4, also from Tackle Direct. The combination is excellent.
Hey, with all the money we spend on boats, gear, preparation, and time on the water, shouldn't you have at least one or two rods that are the best in the business? Get this rod!!
