G.Loomis Mossyback Trigger Rod
I have been fishing the 7'5 Heavy Mossyback flipping stick for over a year now. It is a great blend of strength and sensitivity. Flipping in the grass in Florida you need a rod like a G. Loomis Mossyback. The rod is worth every penny, and when you hook into that linker largemouth you will be glad you have this rod.

Excellent Worm Rod
My buddy's dad got new Ranger and they gave him 4 new GLX's with the boat. I tried one out when I was fishing down in the Ozarks and had to have one. After finding out what they cost I started fondling the less expensive Gloomis rods and let me tell you that the Mossyback is the way to go for the price. The GLX was a little lighter and I would have loved to have those Titanium guides but for the price, this is the way to go. If you have never fished a worm or jig with a Gloomis rod I recommend you don't. You won't have a clue what you are missing and you won't have to get one. It's really the only way to keep yourself from getting one.

G Loomis Mossyback bcr804
The best rod I ever had! Fished with St. Coix for years. Then I decided to try a g loomis to see how they were, I was very surprised at how light and sensitive they are. For the price. My casts are on target 95% of the time. The rear butt section is short enough that I can fish out of my kayak without jabbing myself in my ribs,and it's the right length to give me the amount of leverage needed to haul those 4+ lbrs out of the brush with no problem. With the steez baitcaster mounted on the rod in my opinion you can't go wrong.

Light & Strong
I have the 6'8" M JIG & WORM paired with a 50-series Curado for Senkos and light jigs. The balance is perfect, weighs next to nothing, and is very sensitive.
While landing a fish with another rod I fell off my casting deck into this rod, breaking it out of its holder - then stepped on it a few times, popping the reel out of the seat and bending a guide (I think the Benny Hill theme may have been playing in the background).
Amazingly there was no damage to the reel seat or reel, and the guide bent perfectly back into place. I've caught a bunch of fish with that combo since then and it's as good as new. There's no evidence that it once absorbed enough punishment to destroy a lesser-quality rod.
