G·Loomis Hot Shot Rods were originally designed to fish steelhead plugs like the Hot Shot (hence the name), and that's still their #1 use. But anglers have discovered that the Hot Shot Rods also work great for other species such as redfish, walleye, stripers and sturgeon. These rods have light or medium tips and magnum power butt sections, which make them excellent casting tools and even better fish-fighting tools. If you're not familiar with Hot Shotting for steelhead, the technique goes something like this: The angler positions his boat at the head of a run and allows the current to pull the plug down to the fish zone near the bottom. The boat then sweeps across the current so the plug can cover the entire width of the river. Lure action is monitored by watching the wiggle of the rod tip as the lure digs for the bottom in a side-to-side motion. When a fish hits the plug, the magnum butt-section actually sets the hook for you. And the boat operator keeps initial tension on the fish until the angler can grab the rod from the holder. It's an extremely effective technique and a very versatile rod design.

Hello, Looking at this GL Series Hot Shot Rod. This would  be a GL2 or 3? And not a E6X series?

Thank You.

These rods are not part of the E6X series. These are the GL-2 rods.
