Maintaining contact with the bottom and adjusting to depth change is critical with the bottom-bouncing technique, so sensitivity is important. The goal is to keep the bait in the zone. Model WBBR853C features Fuji Alconite guides with G. Loomis's fiber blend technology which makes this rod with just enough power in the butt-section for positive control without adding extra weight, blended into a lightweight, responsive tip for sensitivity. It gives you very precise lure control and lets you know immediately when you get bit. Model WBBR853C GLX has a lightweight, responsive tip-section for the ultimate in sensitivity and features Recoil guides. This may the most technical walleye rod G. Loomis makes.
