There are other high-modulus graphite rods as tough and durable as the G.Loomis® 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.
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.
This is the best fishing pole i have ever had. I had the G. loomis GL2 and that was a great pole, but the GL3 is even that much better i thought. i go fishing at least once a week and try more then that. i would never use any other pole for bass fishing. has perfect action, and perfect weight to toss your plug accuratly everytime. i love this pole and recommend this pole to anybody that love to bass fish with a open face reel!!!

Bit pricey but worthy investment!
It may be a bit pricey but known G. Loomis reputation as a company for long time. What I have is the GL3 PR844. Took it to Mississippi River and fished with Lindy Rigs/3-ways. I'm extremely impressed and have caught some quality sized fish. The feel of knowing when to detect the bite...unbelievable! I also have GL3 SJR782 as well as IMX SJR902. Awesome spinning rods that fits my needs!

I recently bought a GL3 6'6" Medium. I paired it up with a Quantum Energy PTi ( E30PTi-A) and it has, without a doubt, out performed all my previous rods. Amazing sensitivity but with a lot of backbone too. Just the other day, a BEAVER hit my lure and i pulled him all the way to the shore before realizing what it was and cut the line.

I bought this rod several years back. I broke it on a monster (I swear) and recently used the warranty to return it. Awesome GLoomis customer support. BPS is about the only place I know of that carries these awesome rods in Indiana.

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.
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.
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.
