G.Loomis® BronzeBack Smallmouth Rods - Trigger

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 Mag-Touch blank-thru-handle construction for better feel and control. 1-piece rods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lemonmerchant Handles 5lb small mouth with ease
I purchased this rod last summer after using my Bronzeback spinning rod extensively. I opted for the 6'9 MH version to balance out my kit and have been very satisfied with the purchase.
To to date, I've had great success with this rod and this past fall, have landed 3 small mouth in the 4-5 lb range. It handled them extremely well and I was able to boat all of the fish. Tons of power, great sensitivity and lots of control when fighting bigger class of fish.
I paired mine with a Curado 201E and 20lb braid. It is sensitive enough to work soft plastics which was surprising but also handles spinner baits extremely well.
Can't beat a Loomis and if you love chasing small mouth, I would recommend this rod. For me, the ease of use justifies the price.

I use G. Loomis Rods exclusively! This is their lightest rod I've used thus far. I just received the rod last week, and already caught a 3lb smallmouth bass. I use this rod for light to heavy jerkbaits and it works great! Highly recommended! G. Loomis 4ever!

Good to use with a small bait caster such as shimano chronarch 50E. I even use it in rivers. just a top notch rod for smallmouth of all sizes. You can feel everything you bait hits i.e. branches, stumps, big rocks, even the smallest bites. i wouldn't try to use this rod in anything over 10 ft though personally
