G.Loomis GL³ Spinning Rods
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.

I purchased the 6'6" rod with fast action and medium power to be paired with a 260 penn slammer as a light weight combo for schoolie stripes. After using it i quickly found it was cable of handling much larger fish I have land many bluefish of 10 lbs and multiple stripers over 25" the rod is amazing and worth every cent.

I've been fishing almost exclusively St Croix rods for the past few years. This year I bought myself the new stradic and decided to pair it with this rod. I got the 7 ft medium light fast action model, and let me tell you: it is absolutely incredible. I'm a fan of stiffer tips, so the fast action was perfect for me. I could cast 1/8 oz jigs a country mile into the wind. Amazing sensitivity as well. I could feel every little bump that came my way. Be it grass touching the jig head or a bait stealer, I felt it. The backbone is also phenomenal. For such a sensitive rod to be able to handle a 6 pound snook amidst mangrove roots is incredible. To sum it up, this rod is worth probably more than it costs. Get yourself one today.
