G.Loomis Pro-Blue high performance graphite saltwater casting 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.

Perfect northeast rod for a variety of fishing applications. I use it to throw heavy plugs for stripers and blues, deep jig sea bass and tog and chunk live bait. I have mine paired with a Calcutta D and nothing phases it. Super light, long butt section for tucking under your arm and strong as a telephone pole with a light enough tip for good action.
ProsStrong Lightweight Versatile Sensitive
ConsA little expensive

I bought 2 G Loomis PBR785C rods. The first one one snapped in half the third time I used it. The second one snapped the first time I used it. Both broke at the exact same spot. I don't know what G Loomis changed, but I will never buy this trash again!
ConsUnreliable and brittle.

I really like this rod, I got the 902s on sale for half off and really wasn’t sure how it would be, but I’m really glad I got it! It’s light, has a good feel to grip and use, and has more power than it initially feels like it has. I was a little worried it was too light for snook around piers & docks but it has proven to be a great Rodger them. If I needed another rod I would get it full price.
ProsLight, Power, feel

Nicely made, very light in hand

extremely light feeling rod, sensitive, yet to really test the backbone
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.

Do you think this rod would be good choice for fishing live mullet in a summer Texas surf, say with a Calcutta 400 Shimano?

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 Answer
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 Answer
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.
