I am looking to upgrade my casting rods and I can't decide between a G.Loomis or a St.Croix . I was also looking at Powell and Kistler but hadn't heard too much about them one way or the other.
What do you guys and gals think?
INDUBITABIBABLY!! If I had the money, G Loomis would be the only rod in my boat. St Croix, Falcon, and BPS are the next three faves. I haven't tried Kistler yet, but with what they want for their rods I'll stick with G Loomis, just because it would make a cool rapper name. 8) YOYOYO
Absolutely worth it to me.
I started out with one rod about 5 or 6 years ago and bought three more when I worked some side jobs. My fish catch rate increased at least 50% because I could feel the slightest bumps and tics. I plan to buy more eventually, the heavy one pc. flippin stick is next and then a toad rod. The Shimano reels go great with these rods in my book. St. Croix are good too, but I am biased.
Don't hesitate, SET THE HOOK!
In my opinion My Loomis's are worth every penny on one hand but on the other I feel like my IMX is just as sensetive or more than my GLX. Knowing that I wouldnt have spent the xtra money for it,but i do love the recoil eyes
