There are other high-modulus graphite rods as tough and durable as the GL3, but not one of them can match it for weight. The G.Loomis® BronzeBack Smallmouth Spinning Rod's 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.

"Bust" some bronzebacks I don't have a ton of money to throw around at fishing gear, but I LOVE my toys so when picking my set-ups I am very selective and hold high expectations. For the price these rods are primo bass rods. They are sensitive enough to "bust" those smallies that just tickle the bait, but strong enough to handle anything a bruiser bronzeback can throw your way (and they throw everything they've got). The rod fits comfortably in hand, is light enough to be casted ALL day, and sports the quality that only G-loomis is capable of providing. GREAT ROD, won't leave camp without one. July 15, 2008
SMR752S-SP I throw mainly baitcasters in bass tournaments, but bought this spinning rod to throw plastics and small jigs. It is incredibly light and sensitive. I recently took this rod to Canada for walleye. The first time I went to Canada I took a regular cheap rod and had a lot of trouble feeling the walleye bite. This year I took the G Loomis and didn't miss a fish. The difference was amazing! I even landed a 41" Northern Pike on this Bronzeback rod while fishing for walleye! July 10, 2008
Redfish in Nola! Fished the marsh south of New Orleans recently. Paired the rod with a stella 3000. Both rod and reel worked to prefection on some 27 to 33 inch Redfish. Light and well balanced I was able to cast all day without fatigue. Fast action with plenty of backbone. I would recommend this rod to those fisherman who desire the very best tackle. April 28, 2012
G-LOOMIS SMR752S-SP BRONZEBACK ROD I use this rod primarily to drag 3.5" tubes for river smallmouth. I already owned an IMX SJR721 and loved it, so I debated about whether to get another IMX or a Bronzeback. I am very pleased with my decision to get the Bronzeback rod. It is very light and sensitive, maybe even more sensitive than the IMX. And it is a little less expensive than the IMX. I really like the short foregrip because I like to put a finger on the blank for extra sensitivity. I think anyone who buys one would be very happy. July 11, 2006

A: 
I have the 7'4 and it has handled a 4+ small mouth with ease so I have no doubt the 6'9 version will perform equally well.

you might need to play them a bit longer with the light action but that shouldn't be too much of an issue.

A: 
this rod would handle a 3lb smallmouth with ease i landed a 5 pounder with no problems but a catfish or carp would be a bigger challenge but the rod should hold them, if not its under a lifetime warranty youll be fine gloomis has great customer service and you can have a new rod in a day or two

A: 
Yes, it will definately handle a 3lber. Go by the line test limits. If it handles 12lb test, you can handle a 12lb fish if you had to. IF you had to. It is more geared to the 3lber though.

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.

What is the best tube rod

Details: 
I drag tubes for smallmouth mostly that range from 1-3lbs with the ocassional 4+.Mostly in depths of 6-15ft I have had a lot of trouble feeling and missing the bite. I like the sounds of the G.loomis Bronzeback but can not decide between the 6.3LF 6.3MF and the 6.9LF. Any help or other options in the same price range would be appreciated Thanks

A: 
I use the 6' 3". you can feel the fish if it breathes on your bait if you use light line. I use 4lb braid. I'll handle big smallmouths.

A: 
I would get the 6.9 LF. The tip will be very soft but you can detect hits instantly. I had a 40+ fish last week picking up small mouth and walleye in a fast moving river and I didn't miss a beat.

I have the 7'4 version and the only honest complaint is that it is a pain to store.

A: 
If you're only fishing from a boat, the 6'3" LF would work. If you want to use it from shore as well, or will be making long casts, opt for the 6'9" to give you better casting distance. I personally have the 6'9" and love it for similar applications. Very good vibration transmission. I couldn't beleive how sensitive it was paired with braid and a fluoro leader! I was giddy!

A: 
Of the options you mention, the 6.3MF would be your best bet, IMO. While you surely can land 3 lb. smallmouth on light action rods, I've always felt under gunned doing so. Also, at the 6-15ft depth you mention, I'm guessing you're using somewhere between an 1/8 and 1/4 oz weight with your tubes. I feel like I loose sensitivity fishing even 1/8 oz jigs on a light action rod. Hope this helps.
