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.
GL3 is an A+
I recently purchased a G Loomis GL3 in the SJR721 combination which is a light action spinning rod, fast action, 4-10 lb test. Like all Loomis rods, it is spectacular and I mated it to my Shimano Sustain 1000FE. There are a few things that set this rod apart from the competition. G Loomis has amazing sensitivity; you can practically draw a map of the bottom of where you are fishing as you can feel everything. This means you can feel even the most nimble of bites. The rod is also exceptionally strong; it doesn't have a problem handling that beefy largemouth. The strength doesn't come at a toll as the rod is phenomenally light; team the rod with a light reel and you won't get wrist fatigue, even if you fish all day. To compliment that light strength is an really ergonomic handle; it was very well thought and fits the hand nicely. While the GL2 and GL3 are the two starter end G Loomis rods, they are far superior in quality and ability to practically everyone else's flagship rods. If you don't mind spending a few dollars, I highly recommend taking a look at this guy!

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.

G-Loomis SJR 700
I recently purchased my first G-Loomis rod, an SJR 700. What a difference it makes to fish with a quality rod. Not only did it increase casting distance and accuracy, the sensitivity of this rod has increased my harvest. The first time out this spring I out fished my partner 5 to 1 using the same presentation. I had a superior rod and could "feel" everything. This rod was the most rewarding purchase of fishing gear I have ever made.

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.
