G. Loomis Saltwater Popping Spinning Rods


G. Loomis Saltwater Popping Spinning Rods were originally designed for casting live bait (mainly shrimp), under a popping cork out on the flats, but freshwater anglers have found many other uses for them as well. These rods have a relatively soft tip, which allows your bait to land softly and quietly, even on long casts, another plus when the water's skinny and the fish spook easily. At the same time, they're powerful rods, capable of handling surprisingly large fish. The top four guides and tip-top feature oversized rings to handle large knots for shock tippets.

G. Loomis Saltwater Popping Spinning Rods are made in the U.S.A.

Specific Rod Details

PR8400S (GL2, IMX) - Most flats anglers would refer to this as an ultra-light popping rod. It has an extremely fast tip for fishing light line and small jigs or live bait, but the butt section has plenty of power to handle bigger fish. A good choice for sight-fishing redfish, bonefish and other flats species.

PR842S (GL2, GL3, IMX) - A truly outstanding spinning rod for bonefish on the flats, the 842 has a light tip, yet plenty of power in the butt section to handle jigs, surface lures or live bait. It fishes at its best with 8-pound line. Freshwater trout anglers will like it for trolling with blades and bait for the lake trout and large rainbows.

PR842-S2 (GL3 2 pc.) - Lots of anglers love the 842, but prefer a two-piece version so they can stow it in their truck or the side pocket of the boat. Here it is.

PR844S (GL3, IMX, GLX) - Designed for redfish and permit, the 844S is a good all-around flats rod for larger fish. It works well with live bait like shrimp, minnows and small crabs, but casts spoons and jigs equally well.

PR904-2S (GL2 2 pc.) - Looking for a good all-around light saltwater rod with enough length for long casts and long-range hook sets? You've found it. Two-piece for ease in storage and pack ability, its tip is light, yet powerful and capable of throwing heavier jigs and handling bigger fish. It's capable of taking on redfish, small tarpon, bonefish and sea trout.

 You get what you pay for.
Pros: Easy To Transport, Durable, Lightweight, Sensitive, Good Tip Action
Best Uses: Large Fish, Small Fish
Comments: I fish off the bank in a local reservoir. This GLX rod paired with a lightweight reel, and 8 lb line casts like a torpedo. The sensitivity is awesome. You can detect very little nibbles and also have the backbone to catch larger fish. My fishing buddies noticed that I've been catching more fish than them(it usually doesn't happen). Since they usually cast further than me (not anymore),I tell them, "I have to make up my 'disability' by using better equipment." This is a great all around rod for lake, pier, or easy surf fishing. If you can afford it, you'll save lots of money by not buying lots of cheap poles.
