G. Loomis GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods are specialty casting rods, designed exclusively for crankbaits. For years, many manufacturers have pushed fiberglass rods for fishing crankbaits, claiming graphite rods are too stiff and react too fast. That’s partly true because fiberglass is softer and much slower reacting, but G. Loomis has gone to great lengths to design the soft, slow flex into these rods while still maintaining the sensitivity and lightweight advantage of graphite. Material is only one part of the formula, design is another, and in the case of the GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods, may be the most important.

GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods feature all of the necessary elements required to make a rod that will fish a crankbait correctly, a soft, more moderate action that’s soft enough to let the lures work properly and allow the fish to inhale the bait, yet is very light, responsive and sensitive. You gain all of the advantages of graphite with a nice soft action rod that's a lot lighter than fiberglass and far less tiring to cast over the course of a long day.

G. Loomis GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods are made in the U.S.A.

Specific Rod Details

GL2 783C CBR - A great all around open-water crankbait rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits of all styles, including shallow runners, lipless cranks and small deep-divers. A great shallow to medium-depth bait rod, especially where accuracy is more important than distance. It works well in close quarters due to the shorter length. It loads easily, is extremely lightweight and has more than enough power to handle big fish.

GL2 784C CBR - A combination of a little more power and the ability to fish a broader range of crankbaits makes this an excellent choice for fishing jerkbaits, lipless-vibrating baits and square bills. It doesn't have the range of the longer rods, but it's excellent when fishing in close-quarters, especially where you need a little more power to keep fish away from weed edges, shore cover and brush.

GL2 785C CBR - When you start fishing slightly larger lures, especially around more cover where you may need a little more power, this rod is a great choice for all styles and sizes of crankbaits. It's a great choice for fishing 1/2-ounce Traps and Spots with the versatility to cover a lot of water and manage large fish. Fish this rod over grass, around brush and sawgrass with little fear of losing fish to the cover. It has a surprising amount of power for such a subtle, soft-action rod.

GL2 843C CBR - A 7’ one-piece rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits. It’s a great rod for deep-diving lures and will throw a Rat-L-Trap that proverbial country mile. It’s stout enough to handle big largemouth, but light enough to fish smallmouth baits with maximum accuracy and control. The extra length really helps with longer casts and fish-fighting control.

GL2 845C CBR - When you have to resort to deep-diving crankbaits to dredge up a bass or two, this is the rod you’ll want. It’s extremely light, so sensitive you can feel a big bass watch your bait and so responsive, you’re ready for every move they make. It's designed with a slower action to allow your bait to work properly. It's a great, long-distance casting rod for medium to large cranks and is surprisingly powerful.

GL2 847C CBR - When you’re throwing large, oversized deep-divers, this is a rod you’ll really appreciate. It’s got the power to make extremely long casts, fish the baits as deep as they can run and handle any sized fish. An excellent choice for fishing the grass and over humps in deep-water situations. It will handle small swimbaits as well as any rod we make and talk about long-distance casts... this is the "cat's meow"!
