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.
