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.

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!

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.
  • Light, Power, feel

I was so skeptical to buy this rod because it was on sale and the rod line rating was only 10-25.
But I caught many 10-20lb yellowtails no problem!!!
  • Got strong backbone!!!
  • Rod rear handle is kind of fat

I was thinking of pairing this with either a Shimano Calcutta 700b or Avet G2 5.3 mostly for fluke fishing Long Island Sound and Montauk. Sound appropriate?
1 Answer
Either reel will work for that rod. The Calcutta will be a little lighter on your hands and the Pro-Blue is a great choice for flounder fishing.

Is this a good black fish rod ?
1 Answer
If you prefer a G.Loomis than I would check out the G-Loomis NRX 916C UBR Bass Casting Umbrella Rig Rod But, if you are willing to look at rods other than G.Loomis than I would look for a rod with more of a moderate action, it is better to stick with a stiffer rod for blackfish. You may find it a little difficult to hook them with a fast action rod.

If your using lighter line the 843c would be a better fit, if your using a heaver pound line the 844c would be best.
