Full Product DetailsBack to top

With demand exploding for premium, high performance Centerpin rods, G. Loomis has produced a new series of rods that will cover all your float needs, from the Great Lakes to the Pacific Northwest. The G. Loomis Centerpin Float Rods have very light yet strong tips that say goodbye to "tip sag." While other manufacturers have to add more material to create long rods like these, resulting in heavy sagging tips, we chose to use our proprietary GLX graphite.

G. Loomis Salmon & Steelhead Centerpin Float Rods are finished with extra long cork and composite handles with Pac Bay sliding rings for perfect balance and reel positioning. G. Loomis then matched the finest high frame titanium RECOIL guides from REC for higher sensitivity and reduced weight. The result is the lightest, fastest rods of this length anywhere. The GLX graphite blanks are finished in a flat grey color.

Specific Rod DetailsBack to top

STR1352GLX - The 11'3" length makes this the perfect cp rod for the famous creeks of Pennsylvania and Indiana, and anywhere breaking through brush or fishing tight water is required. This rod has a soft enough tip to protect light leaders where water clarity requires them, yet maintains the power to turn a fresh run steelhead anywhere.

STR1562GLX - This rod is a great all-around rod no matter where you fish. The 13 foot length and high speed make casting floats of any size a dream. Its super light weight balances with almost any pin reel making long days with no arm fatigue possible for the first time.

STR1563GLX - Big water, heavy flows and large floats are no match for this 3 power. It's hard to believe a rod this light can handle 8-12 pound leaders and still have the speed to set hooks at distances never thought possible. This rod will also double as a coho/king rod in waters from BC to Oregon.

STR1803GLX - 15 foot, fast and light, never before has this option been available. With a 8-12 pound line rating this rod can master anything from the pier heads of Wisconsin to the Manistee, Thomson or the mighty Niagara. The extra length helps aid in extra long casts of oversized floats, keeping the line off the water and tiring fish in the largest steelhead water in the world.

No hook holder!? Come on loomis!   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Flexible, light, ridiculously little tip sag!
Cons: cork was constructed poorly, No hook keeer, Hard To Transport
Best Uses: Steelheading
Comments: I have only bought loomis for years. I really like them. I'm disappointed with how the cork on my rod was put together unevenly. I'm also disappointed that it has no hook holder. However during use this rod is a dream like all the loomis rods I have. Used it on my last trip landing 15 steelhead.

GLX float rod 13ft   (from prior model)
Pros: Good Tip Action, Accurate Casting, Durable, Sensitive
Cons: Cork is poor grade, No hook keeer, Hard To Transport
Best Uses: Excellent light weight, River Fishing
Comments: Great light weight rod, handles fish very well, sliding rings to position reel for balanced rod, spring recoil guides are very light weight and do not freeze up as easily as standard guides. Cork on handle is poor quality and filler falls out after one outing. No hook keeper. 2 piece rod may not fit in many vehicles, 3 piece would be a nice option. Still the best or one of the best choices out there.

Best Center Pin on Planet (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive
Cons: Hard To Transport
Best Uses: River Fishing
Comments: The 15ft is extremely light for such a long rod. It can cast a mile and be used all day long with very little fatigue. If you fish big water this is one fantastic rod. The rod does not come with a rod tube so I would recommend picking up a St. Croix rod tube from these guys.

Great rod   (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Durable, Accurate Casting
Cons: Hard To Transport
Best Uses: River Fishing, Large Fish
Comments: This is a very good rod nice and light. Dont listen to the moron before me. He has no clue about the guides. The only guide that WILL freeze on you is the tip guide because it has ceramic in it. The recoils DO NOT FREEZE. I fished this rod many many days so far this season in well below freezing tips atleast 10 days on the water in temps below 25 deg. People may not like the looks of the recoils but they are the lightest and best at not freezing on you.

loomis strikes again (from prior model)
Pros: Sensitive, Good Tip Action, Accurate Casting, Flexible, Durable
Cons: Hard To Transport
Best Uses: Large Fish, River Fishing
Comments: If this is the future of rods to see for steelheading then wow! This is the finest factory produced rods I've ever seen for center-pin reels hands down. Not a big fan of Tennessee handles but i will ignore it due to quality. Light construction is an understatement. Power and action top notch. I'll be using these rods for years to come unless the blanks become available. Which Loomis believes in being a rod company not a blank company. Just buy it and you'll see what i'm talking about.

Just wondering if the 6-10lb 13 foot version is noticeably lighter than the 8-12lb 13 foot version

I have owned both of these rods and the 6 to 10, 13 footer is a very soft and wippy rod. To me it seemed like more of a 3 to 6 rod than a 6 to 10 rod. Mine broke while fighting a small steelhead on 6 pound leader. I think this is a decent trout rod, but is not adequate for steelhead. I sent it back and got the 8 to 12 pound rod instead. The 8 to 12 rod could handle 10 pound test if you are careful and no matter what G loomis says, this is not a King Rod. It can handle steelhead into the mid teens, but not any bigger.
