G.Loomis Pro-Blue high performance graphite saltwater spinning and conventional rods are not your average inshore rods. With cork handles, heavy-duty composite reel seats, Fuji guides and blanks designed with dynamic, fast-actions, these are truly specialized rods. They're a blend of the traditional flats and bay rods that allow you to wrestle big fish without any distractions or malfunctions. You'll feel the difference. They may feel like lightweights because they are, but there's a power so intense and mystical that you'll wonder how G. Loomis did it. Their secret is your advantage.

Nicely made, very light in hand
extremely light feeling rod, sensitive, yet to really test the backbone
Proslight
Consit's a little creekie , makes an above average amount of "new rod" noises throughout the blank. This just might be the way its made. Doesn't seem to have any defects or affect the performance of the rod/blank.

GLoomis PBR844S Pro-Blue Saltwater Series Rod
A very nice rod that is extremely fun to catch Kings, Spanish, and Wahoo on. It casts very well and is great trolling or lure/topwater fishing.

My favorite saltwater rod.
By Larry S.

Strong and versitale
This was a good match to my Avet SX 6/4 MC. The rod is light weight with good balance. It is rated as a fast action rod yet it has decent parabolic bend that absorbs shocks of an initial hard strike and quick runs. This rod will work well for both inshore ling cod, white sea bass, striper, and halibut fishing and as an offshore jig stick for tossing live bait and jigs to schooling albacore and similar sized tunas.

Which of the G.Loomis rods can you use for trolling a 16oz lead? I have eight or nine ok rods, but ready to start buying nice ones for myself and my next generation of fishermen to enjoy. Thank you.

G Loomis really doesn't have a rod to trolling with 16 oz. Seeker makes an excellent trolling rod. The Seeker Super Seeker Stand Up Rods would be a solid option for you.

Can you use these for dropping 16 ounces of lead for drifting eels

These rods are a bit too light for dropping 16 ounces of lead. If you are fishing that much weight, I would recommend going with a different rod.

I would recommend using a 4000 of 5000 size reel with that rod. If I had one, I would use it for lighter bucktailing for flounder and throwing lures to striper and blues off of a kayak.

Which Conventional Model would you recommend for live lining bunker and eels, some light chunking, maybe trolling a tube and worm? This would be for Blues and Stripers. Thanks! Also, what reel would you recommend for the rod?
1 Answer
We suggest going with (GLO-0225). It will give you great sensitivity and power while still being incredibly light. As for a reel, check out the Avet SX or MXL.
