G.Loomis® GL³® Trigger Rods
I have the 7' Hvy rod, and this is the one you want for light pitchin, jigs, or c-rigs. Sensitive, good flex in the tip, and a hook holder. Dont forget about the warranty! GL3 is perfect for the guys that want to step up to better stuff without spending too much!

In the past several years I have become a huge fan of G-Loomis rods. Their exceptional feel and power has far exceeded my experience with lesser quality rods. I opted for the GL3 series for its length-weight availiability and fair price tag. I opted for the 7ft heavy action with a fast tip. I have been using it to fish small summertime jigs. The tip is very responsive while the length allows me to work the water column efficiently. The heavy action is not at all heavy; rather, it is a light rod for its inherit characteristics. I would recommend this product to anyone.

only one prob.
i have had a 6' medium action of this rod for about 5 months. it is super sensative works great with all typed of baits. one day i was at my creek spot drop shotting a grub and latched on maybe a two pounder. all i did was pull the fish out of the water to land it and the rod tip snapped 4 guides down in the middle between the next guide. i expected more duribility out of a $200 g- loomis but i think it had something to with the rod being alittle to stiff. but the warranty service is great and they ship you a new rod for between $50 to $65 depending on how fast you want your new rod no questions asked.

pricey but worth it
I have the MBR 783 and I must say that at first I thought that the rod was over priced. That is until you fish with one.
Pair it with a Daiwa sol and weight is only 11.5 OZ. you can go all day.
The feel and back bone of this rod are great at price I can live with.
So impressed with this rod just purchased a CBR 845.
I do not think you can go wrong with a loomis rod.
