G.Loomis GL³ Spinning Rods
I use this pole with a 2500 series shimano stradic and 30 lb power pro line on it and I go fishing in the salt marshes for flounder I use a 1/2 oz bucktail and a flounder hook with a minnow and catch more flounder than I can count (no keepers yet ) it is so sensetive and fine that catching a big flounder is no problem for this little pole

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.

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!
