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!
ConsWish it would come with a rod sleeve!

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.

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 Answers
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 Answers
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.
