G.Loomis GL3 Trigger Rod
Better Than Heaven On A Stick
The title says it all. In my past review "Heaven On A Stick", I thought it couldn't get any better than the GL2, I was oh so wrong. Of coarse it lightens your wallet by another $50, but it is well worth it. I have never used a lighter, more sensitive rod that doesn't suffer from lack of strength. I have a very aggressive style of fishing, and I seem to always target those species that want to test my patience. This rod seems to take all you can throw at it, and more. I use the 6' medium heavy models (because they fit easily into a small car without being seen), and I mate them to Shimanos Curado-D 201DHSV and Quantum's Energy E761PT. Both low profile casting reels are light enough to match the rod, and yet offer enough power to muscle in any aggressive fish. Of coarse you need at least 50 pound Power Pro, and some serious terminal tackle if you want the most out of your combo. I am an avid sportsman, and like to share my experience, so please read my other reviews. Hope this helps.

I have the 7" Heavy. It is light as a feather and has sensitivity written all over it. I have a Calcutta D on board. This combination is great for jigs. I can cast a mile and feel every object. I will be looking at other Loomis products in the near future.

I have used this rod for approximately 2 months and have landed several good size Bass of 4 lbs +. The first cast and retrieve let me know this rod is superior to any rod I have used before. I am sold!!! I will use this rod for all of my Bass fishing needs. I have a Shimano Curado mounted and the overall feel of this rod is incredible. The sensitivity is better than anything I have used in the past. I have never fished with a rod like this before and cannot say enough good things about it. The combination of the rod and reel is extremely light weight and provides the feeling of being able to cast all day without any concerns. Buy this rod and you will not be disappointed!!!!!
