GLoomis brand rods occupy many of the top spots in my mind when looking for a factory rod for a specific angling application. Looking for a light inshore rod for striped bass/bluefish/albies? Try the LR842 or LR844. Need a boat rod for larger plugs? Check out the Pro Blue Series. The list goes on and we haven't even begun to talk about GLoomis fly rods yet! It's easy to find a 'Loomis rod that you will fall in love with, the hard part is finding just one.
Gloomis is a brand that I was introduced slowly to starting with their inshore rods. They seem to have just about every rod for any species or style or fishing you like to do. Lightweight and extremely powerful and their warranty is amazing. Once you fish one you'll quickly find that the rods inspire confidence. Some of my personal favorites include the Greenwater GWR901S, the Pro Green PGR824S, the Pro Blue 844S, and the Classic SJR844IMX rods.
