G.Loomis Greenwater Trigger Rods
Best rods I own.
I have three Greenwaters and they are by far the most sensitive rods I've used. Perfect for pitching lures. You will feel every little vibration. Again, they are expensive, but the quality is tops and Loomis has a great warranty.

After much contemplation I finally decided to indulge myself with a G-Loomis rod. Although this is not one of their more expensive rods, a couple of Benjamins ain't chump change either. Of course it is a very light and sensitive rod. It has good backbone for fighting those fiesty saltwater fishes, but I prefer a little faster tip for plug casting. The guides are of a larger diameter which is great for allowing the leader knot through without a snag (can't imagine why others haven't figured this one out too). It is a good rod, but the ultimate question for something this pricey is, is it worth it? Well..............if you've got plenty of dough, what the heck! But I must say I have other rods that don't command the price of a G-Loomis that are frankly, better. Overall, I like the rod and uh..............that green color is really cool. LOL!

Guide failed first time out
I have a G-Loomis® Greenwater Spinning Rods (GWMR783S) and I really like it, so I decided to get the trigger rod. The braided line that I was using cut through the first guide on the first fish that I hooked with the rod (an eight pound blue fish). This is an expensive rod, designed for the exact type of fishing that I was doing. Many of us use braided line. There is no excuse for this rod's failure during its first use.

GLoomis Greenwater Rods
I had first bought a Spinning model and absolutely loved it, then I got the baitcast model. These rods are pricey but well worth the money spent. Very sensitive but stout for the fight. Very well made and balanced. I use a Shimano Curado (new model) with this rod and it is a match made in fishing heaven. I highly recommend this product.
