G.Loomis Pro-Blue high performance graphite stand-up saltwater rods are not your average stand-up 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.

Love the rod. The fit and finish is awesome! The real test will be in two weeks taking it out to the oil rigs. Gloomis has to be some of the best for the money!

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.

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.

Powerful Rod
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.

Nice Rod
Light and Fast. This rod I have teamed with an Avet SXJ 6/4 MC Raptor reel. Seven footer works great on the boat. And with the fast action works great casting from the shore.

Great buy
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!

Someone recommend a seeker 7020c rod for trolling for stripers and chunking for them also. I€™d rather get a gloomis would the PBR843C be the most similar rod compared to the seeker rod?? Or is their a better gloomis rod that matches the 7020c?
1 Answers
I would recommend the seeker for trolling striped bass because of the blank that the rod is made of.

Would this rod work well for fluke fishing in New England or would the PBR844C be better?
1 Answers
The PBR844C would be a better fit for the style of fishing your doing as well as for where you will be fishing. You will need a rod with a bit more back bone and the PBR844C has just that.
