G Loomis question?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with a GL3 or IMX S842 7ft Fast-Lite? Whats your thoughts and feelings? How is she gonna fish a 1/8oz jig and maybe a 1/4? Was hopeing someone had fished both the IMX and GL3 in that model, much difference?

I kinda want the IMX but like the looks of the GL3 mahogany blank.

Thanks. cool.gif

Drawing a blank here. Is that their ultra light blank??

What do you intend on using it for??

I just went out on their site. the S842 is listed under their Panfish rod section, so your use may somewhat be limited depending on how you use it.

When on thier site click on "blanks" then "spinning". You'll see the S842-2 offers in both IMX and GL3 - its a fast astion, lite power for 1/16-5/16oz 4-8 lb. They also have a S841 fast ultra-lite for 1/32-3/16 - not interested in that one.

Im gonna use it for panfish but mostly throwing 1/8 and 1/4oz jigs for eyes, so it sounds like the ticket.

Im thinking a split handle with recoil guides. Some dont like the recoils but I do, they are the lightest option going...

Yep not much diff price wise between the two. Reading, the IMX seems like it might be a tad stiffer so hopefully enough backbone and it weighs a tad less. Sure wish I had a place to fondle blanks before I buy. I can always send it back but thats a pain I try and avoid...

    • First snapper yesterday. It was looking for Leech!     Was that Leech?
    • Baked taters  grilled pork chops and Califlower  . Had better Califlower though. 
    • Sunset last night on Burntside lake.    
    • Just don’t know where else to put this ray of hope.
    • We get eggs from locals who have chickens.  The difference in shelf life between washed and unwashed eggs was weird the first time I heard it.  Months for unwashed; maybe a month for washed.   Farm fresh is a fair amount different than from the grocery store.  Bigger yolks and thinner shells are two of the more noticeable differences.  I had my first red yolk eggs a few weeks ago.  Kinda freaked me out but it’s no big deal really.
    • Nature is pretty rad.    I think it's cool the eggs can just sit there for some time.  Especially because it can get quite cold.   There are sometimes a dud or two and I first thought it might be because they froze before mom incubated them but they always kick off.  When I have done post mortem examinations of the duds they always have almost completely developed ducklings inside.  I've never found one that was just some yolk.
    • No mosquitos yet, plenty of flies the last couple of days and here is my first spider outside of the house!    
    • I’ve never studied it but I’m pretty sure she has to be full time incubating before they all start.
    • I have a bunch of people telling me to install a camera in the box and set up a webcast.  I know my parents would love it.  Especially my dad, who built the house.     If I ever get around to it, I'll post a link.
    • I wish I would have caught them taking the leap and deciding which mom to follow.  I saw them that morning and it looked like about 2/3 went with one and 1/3 the other.  Definitely some gansers in the mix too.     I've caught the leap once out of 5 years.  I track it pretty close and can predict within about 5 days window of when I need to watch in the morning for mama duck to fly down and wait.  I had it nailed last year but real life prevented me from seeing it happen.   It's interesting to me that the duck lays an egg or two a day and they pile up over the course of a week/week and a half.  But they all hatch on the same day.  Crazy.  It must have something to do with development kicking off when mama duck starts sitting on them full time.  It's cool that those first layed eggs just sit there in a state of suspended animation waiting for mom to start full time sitting on them.
