GLoomis 915C-HB 7'7" MH

5 posts in this topic

Quick advice needed. I found a few of these rods at about 40%-50% off. Are they that much better than my Compre's? I would be tossing bucktails w/ these. Just looking for input from experienced users. I have not forked up to rods that expensive yet so don't have much experience with them. I do know the Glooms have good warranty and a hefty price tag. Second I'm thinking of paring luna's with them...advice would help me break the barrier of taking out the pocket book.

I love my Loomis rod, light strong and honestly in reality not that expensive. I have the 7'10 Loomis and throw everything up to mag dawgs on it. I paid $238 shipped for mine last Dec so if you can get them at near half I'd buy 2.

As for the Lunas we have 2 in the boat new in May both broke down already, both been repaired 1 didnt last 2 outings after getting repaired the other we'll see since he just got it back. I would buy a Shimano Calcutta 400B befor a Luna. We have 4 of the 400 B's and other than drags backing off no other issues.

Thanks for the reply. I've kinda heard mostly good about the luna's but still hard to pull the trig on one when I hear the calcutta's best you can get. I have the wife picking up 2 poles for me on her way home. Fleet has them on clearance btw. Basically half off the 915 and 914 series, not the cx though. I think I saw a few 7.10's too. Not sure I can post that but always willing to help out another fishing buddy. I'll probably have to look into the CTE since I need a lefty. Only reason I'm looking is because 4 of my abu's all broke on me, 2 this past weekend. Plus I found some deals on rods clearance rods for about 40 bucks more than my compre's.

I have two lunas and they have been nothing but great for two seasons. The new St. Croix Avid A300 are the same reels, but you can never go wrong with a shimano either.

    • You don't have to be suspicious of religion at all. Spend some time at church, if it fits you great, if it doesn't, you move on.   I went through dozens before i found a home,   If you are going to cast a suspicious eye. Do not start with governing body or a religion.   Start with the family, as that is where all the pressure, guilt and brain washing starts.  
    • You'll still only be able to go so fast with tracks whether you're turning 2 or 4. Sure might add a little speed with just 2, but any incline or terrain, having only rear tracks is just going to get you stuck.

    • took to long but I finally  ordered the grill this morning!! looking forward to using it!! 
    • 2.20.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello from the NW Angle!   We still have lots of ice up here, however the snow pack is diminishing rapidly, especially with the warm temps and rain in the forecast.   On the Minnesota side, fishing away from structure seems to be most productive with target depth being from 22-30 feet. Gold continues to be the hot color. The amount of perch we are seeing in our buckets continues to increase.   Fishermen on the Canadian side are still reaching their crappie limit with ease, fishing holes between 29 and 35 ft. A variety of baits are producing including, wax worms, mustache baits and dead minnows.   Until next week, Sunset Lodge Ice Team
    • this thread is making me soooo hungry!!!!!!!!  great looking food guys!!
    •   True.  Trump doesn't either.   Like I said, we should be more suspicious of rulers and oppressors who use religion as a tool than the religion itself.    
    • We picked up a couple voles mid-last week, that must have come from our neighbor yard.  Once the neighbors snow melted, their nest was exposed and it is quite the elaborate colony too.  Got a deer mouse this morning also.   
    • The new minn kota 300d didn't have the two 20ga wires so just spliced the black  to black and red to white from the charging cables, hooked all the batteries back up and everything is working again.
