G.Loomis® Pro Green® Series Inshore Spinning Rods
- Inshore rods with fast-action tips
- Designed for light jigs, soft plastics, topwaters, and other small artificials
- Powerful butt sections to help you move big fish with ease
- Light enough to fish all day with minimal fatigue
Specialized inshore rods with fast-action tips, made especially for anglers who favor light jigs, soft plastics, topwaters, and other small artificials. Not so delicate as a popping rod, they offer the right combination of power, light weight, and sensitivity to allow you to cover a number of presentations, ranging from finesse tactics to the more aggressive techniques. Whether you’ll be making short, accurate snap casts to standing cover, or long prospecting casts in open water, you’ll enjoy the sense of positive line and lure control that these rods deliver. All feature powerful butt sections to help you move big fish with ease, yet like all G.Loomis rods they’re light enough to fish all day with minimal fatigue. Great for reds, trout, permit, snook, bones, small tarpon, schoolie blues and stripers. Made in USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sasquatchi Great tool
This rod is fantastic for what it is. I own the 6'10 MH spinning version. The rod has great tip action, fast but not too stiff. Great for throwing and working soft plastics, even live bait. The best things about this rod are the specs, 6'10 MH with this quality is hard to find. Really, it's identical to what I'd want out of a custom for working docks and mangroves.
The backbone WILL SURPRISE YOU. This rod is very light (although exact figures aren't advertised anywhere) I'd guess right at 4.1-4.3 ounces. I've made quick work with some really big fish, and even fighting 15# redfish around structure, I've never felt outgunned.
If you're looking at this, you're probably comparing it to the SC Avid, GL Greenwater, and if you're not you should be. Each of those rods has it's place. Remember the SC rods have a stiffer tip, so consider that in your purchase. For a longer rod with light baits I'd go GW, for the best all purpose I'd go AV7M, and for structure or snook fishing I'd go with my 6'10 MH PGR.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TRIMAN good rod
I have the med 7'4" fast action rod. Use this rod on the flats great back bone nice action and is light. Only issue I have is that the butt is a little to long for a 7'4" rod would like a shorter handle. Have had some nice size fish and it handled them well. A well made rod !

Rated 3 out of 5 by wosh not a long rod
I ordered the PGR882S for a little extra tip length and a little more power in the handle. I was wrong. All the
extra length, 4" is in the longer butt section making for
a 7 foot rod with a 4 inch extension handle. I will return this and think about ordering the PGR881S. This is not
a bad rod. It looks great and feels good in the hand.
Just not the rod for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great inshore rod
I use this rod for fishing the inshore waters of the Florida Gulf Coast. It casts light jigs, live baits, and hard lures with ease; even against the wind. It makes for a short fight with most fish because of the backbone power. However, it's the kind of power you'd want when fishing for snook or reds in heavy cover or around docks/pilings. Great rod!
