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.
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.
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.
