G.Loomis IMX Series Trigger Rod
Best rod I have ever owned!!
Worth every penny!! If you are a tourney fisherman this rod will pay for itself! Very sensative and tons of back bone. This rod is comparable or better than many of my custom made rods.

The Epitome of a Fishing Rod.
I have heard many people talk about how great G.Loomis rods were, but I could never bring myself to pay the price for one. I finally broke down and purchased the IMX MBR843C and matched it with a Daiwa Viento reel, which I primarily use for soft plastics. After using if for the first time, I could not believe the difference in feel this rod offered me. I could detect even the faintest hits and the rod had enough power to pull the fish out of heavy cover. With this rod being so light and well balanced, I experience hardly any shoulder or arm fatigue even after 8 hours of constant fishing. This rod has really changed my fishing experience and what people say about it is true (and what people usually don't say, such as how well their customer service is and the rods lifetime warranty). If you are considering taking the step of purchasing a G.Loomis rod for the first time, I wouldn't hesitate, and if you currently have a G.Loomis rod, then you already know the pleasure of ownership.

The BEST jerkbait rod out there
The IMX is undoubtedly the best rod for hard and soft jerkbaits alike. It is sensitive yet stiff, has a good butt section but a soft tip; perfect for jerkbait fishing. On top of it all, this rod is superlight, so you can toss those jerkbaits around all day without the fatigue. I also prefer these rod eyes over the GLX in every aspect. There is no presentation where the GLX rod eyes excel over the IMX. They are quiet, smooth, friction/wear resistant, etc. For all these reasons, this is why I have 8 of these rods (not just jerkbaiting, I just think this presentation best suits this rod) and am looking at my 9th. For jerkbaiting, I recommend the 6'6" MH rod. I use a Shimano Curado or Team Daiwa Zillion almost exclusively for jerkbaiting. I also recommend using 14lb. fluorocarbon to maintain stealth and invisibility, while the dense fluorocarbon helps the jerkbaits run deeper. Fluorocarbon will have no effect on floating jerkbaits. Try the Lucky Craft Pointer series, they are great.

g.loomis mbr782 imx series
by far the most sensitive rod i have ever fished with. i had no idea that a rod could let you feel bottom structure so easily. also it is so light weight you can fish jigs and worms all day without wearing out your arm and wrist.
no doubt the next rod i purchase will be another g. loomis!!!
