Whenever G. Loomis has a big time rod release, there is always a bit of excitement around ALFC. After asking the UPS driver 67 days in a row if he had anything good for us, he finally came through and delivered our first batch of the new ’16 G. Loomis GLX rods! There’s good and bad news. Bad news: it’s select models only. We received quite a few of the casting models but still have not received the spinning rods. Those are likely still a long ways out. Good news: We’re not afraid to tell you……these rods are bad tot the bone!
G. Loomis really knocked these things out of the park. There are some MAJOR upgrades on these rods. The most obvious is the combination of better balance and lighter weight. Impressed isn’t the right word…..we’re talking night and day difference between these rods and the previous GLX models. The Fuji K Frame SiC guides are a very nice addition and the handles are close to perfection. The classic GLX blue accent wraps are classy and keep the rod very clean looking. These things are an absolute gem on the water. Find out for yourself and check them out!
