G.Loomis Greenwater Spinning Rods
GLoomis Greenwater Rods
I bought a GLoomis Greenwater 7'6" 10-20lb rod from Bass Pros after alot of research and the very first cast I caught a 6lb Largemouth. She put up a fight which gave me the chance to see how this rod works...excellent!! I got it primarily to do some inshore Redfish fishing but it handles the Bass just fine. It is a very sensitive but stout rod and, what can I say...It just feels right. I highly recommend this product. I know it is a little pricey...but it really is worth it...especially after catching a hog or two. I plan on getting the baitcast model also.

Best Fishing Rod I ever purchased
I purchased a G-Loomis Greenwater 10-20 7'6" fishing rod and teamed it up with a Daiwa Certate 3000. Wow what a fishing combo! This Rod is fantastic for casting plugs and any kind of fishing lure known to mankind. This rod is the most sensitve rod I have ever owned. I use this rod primarily for flats fishing. First time I used it I caught a 28" Snook. This Rod has a lot of backbone. If your looking fo a top of the line fishing combo this is the one.

So I was really excited to have purchased. I researched for months before I decided to buy it.
The only reservation I had about the rod was its price, I could have easily picked up a St. Croix for $100 less.
However, I don't regret going with G. Loomis. The rod is ridiculously light and super-sensitive, casts incredibly far with small weights. I use 1/4 - 3/8oz jig heads for the surf. Not to mention that the color of this rod is a one of kind. And I don't mind the lifetime warranty at all.
So all in all, I would give the rod 4.5 star rating just because the rod is a bit pricey. But, I'm definitely thinking about acquiring another Green water 981S or the G Loomis Pro Blue.
Hope this helps.

I never thought that I would pay this for a spinnig rod.
I now have three G Loomis Rods.
I fish the IFA Redfish Tour in Louisiana and I would be lost without these rods.
They feel light but really have the backbone to change directions with a solid fish.
Once you try one, you will not second guess your purchase.
