G.Loomis® GL³® Spinning Rods
From trolling for trout to casting for cruising redfish, the GL3, rod series offers the perfect combination of hook setting power and light weight action to cover every fishing situation. These high-modulus graphite rods are so sensitive you’ll feel everything that happens under the water, but still tough enough to handle any oversized surprise. Its featherweight construction allows you to enjoy longer more accurate casts while experiencing less fatigue. The classic cork handle provides a comfortable grip for all day casting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fenveg Excellent Rod This is my firt G Loomis and so far I can tell you that is a high quality , light and very sensitive rod. I have no doubt that it will also has the strength required to handle the migthy peackock bass that are common in the lake that I use to fish. I was also considering the St Croix Bass Tournament but finally decided to purchase this rod and I am very happy. Definitely will be buying more rods of this brand. July 5, 2010

A:Crappie are not big fish, you would want to go with the UL or L rod and the length would depend on whether or not you are fishing from a boat. A good quality spinning reel in the smaller size would be the best reel selection.
Details:What size rod and what kind of action do you recommend for plastic worm fishing(Texas Rig?. What size and action do you recommend for a rod with spinner and crank baits
A:You would like to use a MH rod 6'6" length and a fairly stiff tip. Using a rod too limber will produce more hangups than anything.
A:I have the GL3 7 foot medium heavy, Mag bass rod. I have paired it with a curado reel. I fish plastic worms and light jig and plastics on them. You can only beat this rod with an upgraded IMX or GLX version. A GLoomis rod will make you a better fisherman the second you put it in your hands. I use a Fenwick 6 M action for crankbaits and spinnerbaits.
A:Jig fishing demands more "feel" than most techniques. Jiggin' rods should be about 5' 9" long, super sensitive with a forgiving tip section and strong backbone. Rigging rods too demand more "feel", they need to be longer around 6'6" and a softer action. It all comes down to your technique and that depends on time and location. Anyway you cut it, fishin' for eyes it's all about feeling the bite.
