G. Loomis GLX Cranking Series Casting Rods - $395.00 to $455.00
Totally redesigned, the G. Loomis GLX Cranking Series Casting Rods are still some of the lightest, most sensitive, high performance rods G. Loomis makes. Noticeably lighter and more sensitive than IMX and all the other lower modulus materials G. Loomis uses, GLX has been the cornerstone of G. Loomis’ product line for almost 20 years. GLX's high modulus and high tensile-strength allow G. Loomis to use as much as 15% less material than a comparable IMX rod, creating a very dramatic reduction in weight. Offering technique-specific tapers dialed in for a range of cranking and reaction bait applications, the new GLX Cranking Series also features new proprietary reel seats, split-grip handle configurations, and Fuji Titanium SIC guides. New and improved, the G. Loomis GLX Cranking Series Casting Rods still deliver that same unbelievable finite sensitivity GLX is known for - in an entirely new package.

Comments: Not sure what y'all r doin to keep messing up the lockdown nuts but I have a 6 8 NRX and have had no problems out of it. I've caught some monsters on it and have never had a problem. So people don't b afraid of these rods they r awesome rods and nothing is wrong with the nuts. In fact I just bought a GLX and thinking bout gettin another NRX. To the guy saying the IMX is better than the NRX he's crazy the NRX is the best rod on the market period!

Comments: I bought the GLX 843 and matched it with a Lews BB1. I love that combo and I plan on buying another GLX 843. I have to agree with another review GLX and NRX competition is nada!!!! I have three NRX and one GLX rod. Gloomis is the king of the bass fishing!!!

Comments: I just recieved the GLX 7' heavy crankbait and secured a Lews BB1 on the rod with the sexy locking nut. Immediately I had a problem. I can't afford to buy them all. I will mortgage my house , rent my dogs and sell my wife to have the complete line-up. Talk smack if you want, GLX and NRX have no competitors. Great Job G-Loomis
From: Greg: AL
Comments: I have the IMX, GLX, and had the NRX until I sold all of the NRX. I can feel better with my MBR843 & MBR844 IMX & GLX as I could with the NRX rods. I sold all my NRX because the BAD FOREGRIP LOCKDOWN NUT.... Terrible design and now the same lockdown nut is on the GLX rods. Not sure why because it was alot better before without the foregrip to get in the way.... Hey, it's time to redesign ALREADY..... get rid of the foregrip

Comments: James you are dead on about the 1st gen nrx rods.the lock down breaks loose because there is hardly any glue to hold it tight.pops the cork of at the end.they now have a gen2 rod. AS for GLoomis making you pay shipping I would say NO they just sent me one at no charge either way, and shipped it before I shipped the gen1 back to them. call 1-877-577-0600 and ask for LINDA. Quality people that pay everyday humans to do quality work,just look at the people that work around you. Not always perfect Im sure...nothin beats the sensitivity of NRX......NOTHING!!!!!

Comments: I am not sure WHY the Loomis designers would put the TERRIBLE lock-down nut on theses rods like the NRX rods??? I had (SIX) NRX rod and (EVERY) rod had issues with the lock-down nut splitting. Then it's a huge charge to ship the rod back and wait on another one. I think since Shimano is the owner of Loomis, there's not much thought put into the Loomis line. The NEW Crucial rods have better reel seats than these GLX & NRX rods. JUST A TERRIBLE DESIGN....
