The Perfect Rod Series for Inshore Fishing
The Shimano GLF series casting rods are an incredible value for the money. They come in the perfect lengths (6'-6', 6'-9", and 7'-0") and actions for pursuing inshore species such as spotted seatrout and redfish. I have purchased all four models and recently fished with the rods in the waters off of Steinhatchee, FL. The rods performed perfectly and were definitely fished more heavily than the other rods that I took on the trip. They have small diameter blanks made of 30 ton graphite, are lightweight, well-balanced, strong, and sensitive. I can give these rods my highest recommendation and endorsement for inshore fishing.

Incredible Inshore Rod for the Money
My first impressions of this rod wasn't the greatest as it's a super whippy/sensitive rod, it didn't seem to have a whole lot of backbone to fight the occasional hook up to a big red or bluefish inshore. I was totally wrong with that observation.

Very sensitive rod, and has a surprising amount of backbone in a fight. I was able to turn a sting ray with at least a 4 foot wingspan without much trouble at all, didn't once feel like it was struggling at all, really solid blank on this rod.

Seriously great rod for the price with a great feel in hand and super light. Worth every penny!

I love this rod
Lightweight, fast action, cast very good. Exactly what i wanted for being on the kayak. I have much more expensive rods, but each serves a particular role. This i wanted as a lighteweight kayak useable rod and it serves that role great. It is paired with a shimano reel and feels great in the hands.

Awesome Rod
I purchased the 6'6' spinning rod and paired it with an Ultegra 2500. This thing is like an extention of my arm... super light and fun to fish with!

I purchased the 6' 9" Medium a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. I love the color of this rod and the way it looks. The medium is the perfect for the light baits I throw. I have had no problems with my rod. Overall a great rod.

How would this pair with one of the Shimano Baitrunner reals? Specifically the 6000D for striped bass and some smaller fish.
1 Answer
Unfortunately the Baitrunner 6000D does not fit on the reel seat of the GLF rods.
