G Loomis Walleye Series?

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about picking one of these up for this spring. I was thinking about the 6'2" light action model. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with these rods and what they thought of them. Thanks.

I have a 6'3" Loomis, as expected it's a great rod. I don't use it that much anymore, it's become my back-up rod for vertical jigging, pitching jigs, and tossing cranks up shallow. Even though it's a great, super-light weight, super-sensitive rod, I like the feel of my 6.5 and 7 foot rods better.

As long as the length / action / feel are what you're looking for, you won't go wrong. Good luck.

My Loomis Bronzeback is my go-to walleye rod just because I got it dirt cheap and it's more sensitive than anything else I have. I really like it, mostly use it jigging and live bait rigging. It's made for pitching soft plastics, but I've used it for tossing some X-Raps, and it's nice for that also.

I used a X-mas gift cards to get the 7 foot GLX rigging rod from the Walleye series. The ice can't melt fast enough for me. I have 6 other Loomis rods including 3 for jigging 3 different strenghts, a bottom bouncing rod (walleye series), 2 fly rods. I lost my rigging loomis rod last year to Waubay Lake in So Dak. I need to replace it. Each rod I have I wouldn't trade for any other rod out there. Down with St. Croix!

The other thing that is nice about Loomis, if you break the rod, they will replace it with only the cost to you for shipping. I have used that policy once. Very nice.

That bottom bouncing rod is great.

My only comment about the walleye series rods that are not the GLX version, is that I was told by a Loomis rep that they are the same blank as a GL3. The only difference is the handle and color finish. My recommedation is to grab a GL3 and the walleye series jigging rod and run them over a light textured surface. See which one you prefer because that is what matters.

    • Good old Ebner's, they were there forever. I use to go there with my Dad right when they opened in the mornings back when I was like 12 years old, a long time ago! 😀   As far as Cabela's I'm just waiting for the day they change them all to BassPro shops!  😕
    • it's happening 
    • This team is for real, buckle up folks, it's gonna be a fun ride the rest of the season.
    • Mother Nature reminded some people in the north last weekend that winter was not quite finished. Pattison State Park received 3 inches of snow, but it did not last long as temperatures rebounded to the mid 50s after the storm. Memorial Day weekend has arrived and so has the green growth. A green up of vegetation and regular rains have lowered spring fire danger statewide. There have been reports of fox pups being seen, including this one near the Woodruff DNR Fish Hatchery. Fawns are also being seen. Remember keep wildlife wild and observe from a distance.Photo credit: Michelle WoodfordWater levels are still very high on the Wolf River system and a number of central Wisconsin lakes and local government officials have placed emergency slow no wake orders on some waters. Check with county or local officials before boating. .
    • Glad to hear the news for y’all down there. My bro was an Ebner’s customer;  I was MANY years ago when I frequented the area more.   Cabela’s?  There is no more Cabela’s. 😩
    • Here, until you get that shutter speed problem adjusted! 😄    
    • Up here in the Northwest Angle lines are tight and fish are biting! Water temps are warmer in the shallows at 50-52 degrees to upper 40’s in the main lake. Recent weather was not great but the fishing was. Some of the best action has been within a few miles of the lodge. Walleyes have been found anywhere from 3 to 30ft. 22-30ft with a jig and minnow is best during daylight hours.  Multiple trophy walleye were caught this week including a couple 28’s and one 31 inch.  The bite off of the dock late evening is really heating up and will produce limits. Come up soon to take advantage of great spring fishing!    Sunset Lodge
    • They have a good assortment of bobby garland crappie plastics, bunch of bass jigs and plastics, bunch of rapala's, VMC products!, bait, rods, reels and assortment of line.  They didn't have all the shelves filled yet but they are working on it with vendors or something like that...Good Luck!
    • I'll have to check it out as I drive through there quite a bit.  I'm with you on the Cabelas thing.  Its not the same as it use to be and I just don't like shopping there anymore.  I could spend hours in baits shops sometimes and probably spend a little too much too haha!  There's just something about buying gear from a real bait & tackle shop that I really enjoy.
    • Wow that's sickening.  The netting needs to stop.  This isn't the 1800's anymore.
