- Review This Product
The G. Loomis GL2 Flip & Punch Casting Rod features a 2.5" tapered, round fighting-butt and comfortable "hour glass-shaped" cork grip with a 3" cork fore-grip built on a durable and sensitive GL2 graphite blank. It gives you uncanny balance and line control. The reel seat features blank-thru handle construction, with a trigger grip. The aluminum oxide guides are great for use with the heavier lines used when punching heavy baits into cover.
Flipping is a technical form of heavy-duty “finesse” fishing. Heavy-duty in that you're using heavy line, a powerful rod and virtually yanking fish out of heavy cover. It demands a soft, quiet entry, limited boat noise and the ability to put a lure into a small space with every intent of jerking that fish right out that same spot. The length of a flipping stick allows the angler to “swing” soft plastics or jigs into or right next to heavy cover so that they enter the water softly. This allows a vertical presentation so your lure drops straight to the bottom, unlike a lure that is cast and falls toward the angler, missing perimeter zones because they sink at an angle away from the cover.

GL2 894C FPR - Modeled after the very first G. Loomis flipping stick, this is a very versatile rod. Bass anglers will use it to throw heavy Carolina-rigs, slow roll oversize spinnerbaits, and muscle largemouths out of deep-water weed beds. Muskie fishermen will use it for big bucktail spinners, creature baits and mega-tubes, salmon anglers will use it to back-bounce bait and the saltwater crowd will use it for tarpon, but the bottom line is it's a Flipping Stick - an extraordinary one at that! GL2 gives you incredible power for such a lightweight rod, durability and legendary G.Loomis reliability.
