G. Loomis GL2 Casting Crankbait Rods

Winner of Best of Show in the Freshwater Rod Category at the 2011 ICAST Show

For years, many manufacturers have pushed fiberglass rods for fishing crankbaits, claiming graphite rods are too stiff and react too fast. That’s partly true because fiberglass is softer and much slower reacting, but the unique design and graphite material used in G. Loomis GL2 Crankbait Rods has allowed G. Loomis to incorporate all the necessary elements required to fish a crankbait correctly into the rods.

Completely redesigned and updated, the G. Loomis GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods feature the soft, more moderate actions that are soft enough to let the lures work properly, and also allow the fish to inhale the bait, all while remaining very light, responsive, powerful and sensitive. Equipped with premium Fuji ACS Reel Seats and durable Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides as well, the G.Loomis GL2 Crankbait Casting Rods also features a new, split-grip handle, engineered specifically for high performance bass fishing, including a unique, flat-sided fighting butt that provides additional ergonomic comfort for those who prefer to tuck the rod butt under their arm. Just one of the many small things that set G.Loomis Rods apart. Delivering all the advantages of graphite with nice, soft actions specially designed for crankbaits, the G.Loomis Crankbait Casting Rods do it all, while remaining a lot lighter than fiberglass and far less tiring to cast over the course of a long day.

Comments: Purchased the GL2 Crank bait 7"H. I have been looking at them for a while and finally broke down and bought one. Well worth the money but definitely need to hold one before purchasing to see if it is the right rod for you. I was looking for a rod that was good as an all around rod. I almost purchased a 7"MH, but then went and tried them out and realized I wanted a little heavier. It is expensive for a rod but when you use it for the first time you realize it is well worth the money. It fits perfectly in your hand and is super balanced to the point where even with the bait on the end it doesn't feel heavy on either end which helps a lot for long days fishing. Try one and you will not be disappointed.

Comments: Sounds like ole Kevin ordered without doing his homework first. Bummer for you. Loomis are graphite crankin rods. The blanks are thinner, not pool cues like those garbage glass rods. Again, do your research BEFORE buying, get the rod to match up with what you are cranking, and do work, son.

From: meatwad: research is KING

Comments: I would strongly suggest handling this rod before purchase.  Compared to most market rods this one simply does not have a lot of backbone, it is obvious from looking at the photos.  I bought this rod and will now sell it because with 4+lb fish you have to be way more generous than most rods.  Just isnt enough taper from the tip to the back bone.

GL2 783CBR. A great all around open-water crankbait rod designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits of all styles… shallow runners, lipless cranks and small deep-divers. Its ideal for shallow to medium-depths, especially where accuracy is more important than distance. It works well in close quarters due to the shorter length. It loads easily, is extremely lightweight and has more than enough power to handle big fish.

GL2 784CBR. A combination of a little more power and the ability to fish a broader range of crankbaits makes this an excellent choice for fishing jerkbaits, lipless-vibrating baits and square bills. It doesn't have the range of the longer rods, but it's excellent when fishing in close-quarters, especially where you need a little more power to keep fish away from weed edges, shore cover and brush.

GL2 785CBR. A great rod when you start fishing slightly larger lures, especially around more cover where you may need a little more power. It can handle all styles and sizes of crankbaits, and it also has the versatility to cover a lot of water and manage large fish. Fish this rod over grass, around brush and sawgrass with little fear of losing fish to the cover. It has a surprising amount of power for such a subtle, soft-action rod.

GL2 843CBR. Designed to throw medium-sized crankbaits, it’s a great rod for deep-diving lures like a Fat Free Shad or Wiggle Wart, and will throw a Rat-L-Trap or a Lucky Craft LVR that proverbial country mile. It’s stout enough to handle big largemouth, but light enough to fish smallmouth baits with maximum accuracy and control. The extra length really helps with longer casts and fish-fighting control.

GL2 845CBR. When you have to resort to deep-diving crankbaits to dredge up a bass or two, this is the rod you’ll want. It’s extremely light and so sensitive you can feel a big bass watch your bait. Its slower action also allows your bait to work properly and absorb any move the fish makes. It's a great, long-distance casting rod for medium-sized deep-divers of 5/8's ounce or less, and is surprisingly powerful.

GL2 845CBR. When you’re throwing large, oversized deep-divers like a 3/4-ounce Fat Free Shad or a DD-22, this is a rod you’ll really appreciate. It’s got the power to make extremely long casts, fish the baits as deep as they can run, and handle any sized fish. An excellent choice for fishing the grass and over humps in deep-water situations. It can also handle small swimbaits as well as any rod G.Loomis makes.
