G. Loomis GLX Cranking Series Casting Rods


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.

Customer Reviews

Comments: The GLX 957CBR is a fantastic deep cranking rod. It's super lightweight, well balanced, sensitive, and built using the best components. I caught my personal best largemouth - 14.11lbs. - using this rod and it handled that fish with ease. It's my go-to deep cranking rod, even over the Dobyns 805CBRM, which is also a great rod. I highly recommend the GLX series. I own several GLX rods and they're all exceptional.

Comments: Loomis has never made anything garbage. Light, sensitive and just kick-ass. The lame 99 dollar rod craze has everyone wanting Loomis quality for 99 bones. Keep wanting, and stop hating on Loomis and their 'nuts'.

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!!!

From: Brian: Akron, OH

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
