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

Completely updated and improved, the G.Loomis GL2 Drop Shot Spinning Rods are designed to do one thing - fish a drop shot rig effectively - from presentation to hookset to fighting the fish back to the boat. Featuring soft tips that allow the fish to inhale the bait without feeling a lot of resistance, when you feel the tension of a pick up or just see the line jump, all you have to do is raise the rod and the rod will do the rest. They offer the lightweight sensitivity and actions you need for hooking and landing big fish on light lines.

Also equipped with premium Fuji Reel Seats and durable Fuji Aluminum Oxide Guides, the G. Loomis GL2 Drop Shot Spinning 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 or next to their arm. Just one of the many small things that set G.Loomis Rods apart. An excellent balance of value and performance, the G.Loomis GL2 Drop Shot Spinning Rods deliver the technique specific characteristics you need to make the most of your drop shot fishing.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I have been using the Mag-L 821S for a couple years now and have caught multiple bass, catfish, bream, perch, trout and even a gar on this rod with no problems. The mag light is an open water rod but it has a surprising amount of backbone. Love it. Also great for light cranks and spybaits. I fish the mag-L w/ a pflueger 9530 patriarch and 10lb sufix w/ 7lb sunline super FC green flouro leader.

Comments: what an incredible Rod for drop shots. I have the 822 and have hauled some lunkers out from under trees and all kinda stuff. The grip is extremely comfortable and it feels pretty balanced. Paired up with a Shimano stradic 2500 made a great drop shot/shaky head combo.
