G.Loomis® BronzeBack Smallmouth Rods - Spinning
There are other high-modulus graphite rods as tough and durable as the GL3, but not one of them can match it for weight. Its featherweight construction generates increased casting distance, greater accuracy, more sensitivity— and less fatigue than costlier rods.
Special rods (the product of several years of research and development), made specifically to help special anglers (incurable smallmouth bass fanatics) catch special fish (pound for pound, the gamest fish that swims, and that may be an understatement). All are meticulously designed with their quarry in mind. High-density, super-sensitive graphite blanks. Quick tips for great feel, with no loss of power through the backbone. And actions suitable for everything from light-lining tube baits, to slow-rolling spinnerbaits, to burning deep-diving cranks. Feature special reversed reel seats and extra-short foregrips.

you might need to play them a bit longer with the light action but that shouldn't be too much of an issue.
This is a high modulus rod so DON"T horse a large fish. Large fish at the high end of the line rating and no stretch line could spell disaster for the rod. I would use mono for it's forgiveness (streatch) if there was a high risk of picking up a 20lb catfish or carp.
I have the 7'4 version and the only honest complaint is that it is a pain to store.
