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.

Second Everything Everyone Else is Saying
This is a tremendous fishing rod. Light, powerful and very well built. Can be used for many Northeast species and can handle fish from porgies to large stripers.

Gloomis pro-blue saltwater rod
Have 2 of these now and used recently during inshore Florida fishing trip. Good performance, strong backbone to get Red or Snooks out of structure and a good price break. These now have a place along with my NRX series rods.
ProsPerformance and value in one package. NRX is still my favorite but find I now also use the pro-blue series.

G loomis pro blue
I bought this rod specifically for a bull red kayak fishing tournament. I paired it with a shimano stradic fj 4000. I was a little unsure of the combo as it was untested prior to the tournament. However, as the 30 pound braid began to scream off the reel I found out that I made a great choice. This rod and reel combo performed perfectly. The rod is sensitive yet very strong. Towards the end of the fight the fish dove under another kayakers boat and his anchor was wrapped around my line. In an effort to not lose the fish I kept line tight and pulled up a boat anchor and a 28.9 pound bull red at the same time. This rod is awesome. I'm going to buy another one before next years tournament. I would recommend for targeting big inshore fish and would be more than able to bring in cobia, Mahi, and small tuna.

I love this rod! It is my favorite amongst my fishing arsenal. It is super light weight but with plenty of power. I match this rod up with a 10K Sustain or 10K Gosa and its a deadly combo for just about anything in the water. I wrapped mine up with rod wrap to protect the very nice cork material that GLoomis uses.
ProsLight weight, plenty of power.

The rod is great, I can feel ever movement and the texture of the bottom through the rod, ready to catch something to test its real power
ProsBuild seems to be great quality

Great rod with a lot of power and a soft tip.
November 16, 2014
Have only took this rod out about 4 time so far but I can already tell its going to be one of my favorites. I have it set up with a talica 8 II with 40lb white power pro and 75 yards of 20lb clear izor. I had some luck catching some California yellow tails off Catalina and the rod had plenty of power and felt real smooth.
ProsGreat power, looks great and fishes better.

It's A loomis.
If you are all ready using loomis rods this rod is exactly what you expect from the brand.seems to be much tougher than my GL2's and GL3's and still very light. I am using mine with a Penn Spinfisher V 5500. It's a good pairing but I would not go any heaver on the reel. If you don't have any Gloomis rod's and you are a serous fishing junky watch out once you have one yule want more and when they brake (and they do brake) yule just by another one!

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.

August 30, 2015
What size reel is recommended for the 7ft 15-30 (PBR844s) spin rod? What is the best application for this 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?
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.

Are these spinning rods? It is not noted.
The rods with the "S" at the end of the model number are spinning those with a "C" at the end are conventionals.
