G. Loomis GLX Flipping Series Casting Rods

$424.97 - $434.97

A lot of thought went into the new G. Loomis GLX Flipping Series Casting Rods. Flipping is an oxymoron of sorts. It’s considered to be a finesse technique, yet it requires brute strength to make it work. The finesse part comes in the presentation. You want your bait to enter the water very quietly because this is close-quarters combat fishing, and you need it to drop straight down to make sure you get into the sweet spot next to that piling, bush or rock. But you also need heavy line because you’re after big fish, and you need a rod with some guts so that when you do get bit, you can literally yank it away from the cover, quickly and with authority.

Flipping Sticks used to be a lot stiffer, especially in the tip-section, to allow anglers to “swing” the bait accurately - depending on that stiff tip to help set the hook, but as techniques evolve and styles change, anglers have discovered they have more control and better accuracy with a fast-action rod with a more dynamic tip. They can use the flex in the tip to help accelerate the bait towards the target and they can “mend” the line with their free hand to control the lure’s entry into the water.

G. Loomis used to make their flipping sticks with telescopic handles, but boat designs have improved and now, most have rod lockers that will accommodate an 8-foot rod, so they changed the GLX Flipping Series to a one-piece configuration. This allowed them to create a stronger, more sensitive stick that is noticeably lighter, and it also helped them increase tip speed during the hookset, and that means more positive control and more power when you need it. The G. Loomis GLX Flipping Series Casting Rods are so light for having such extreme power, there’s only one word to describe them… Astonishing!

G. Loomis GLX Flipping Casting Rod 7'5" Med 892C FP

GLX 829C FPR. A versatile light-duty flipping stick that works just as effectively as a power pitching rod. It has the power to move big fish from cover and the tip is soft enough to cast comfortably. But it's designed mostly for the flipping technique where presentation is the key to success, especially in clear water where the fish are spooky and you need to drop down in line or lure-size to get bit. In GLX it's especially sensitive and light as a feather.

G. Loomis GLX Flipping Casting Rod 7'11 MH 953C FPR

GLX 953C FPR. Here's a unique rod that many anglers will find appealing. It's not overpowering, but it's more than powerful enough. It's longer - almost 8' - giving you tremendous line and lure control. It will give you total flexibility, handling a variety of line and lure sizes. The butt-section is very powerful, but the tip is slightly softer which will allow you to pitch when the fish are too far back to flip effectively. If you only want one rod that can do a lot of things, this would be the choice. Flipping is the main deal, but it will fish soft-plastic swimbaits, oversized spinnerbaits and talk about a super-sensitive, deep-water Carolina Rig rod... this is a dandy!

G. Loomis GLX Flipping Casting Rod 7'5" Heavy 894C FPR

GLX 894C FPR. GLX's best all around flipping stick. It’s powerful enough to help you to manage big fish without fear of breaking slightly lighter line. A real plus when the fish get a little shy and back into the brush just a little more. Equally effective with a jig or soft plastic bait, this rod will give you total control when fishing in tight quarters, whether it’s thick brush or matted vegetation.

G. Loomis GLX Flipping Casting Rod 7'5" XH 895C FPR

GLX 895C FPR. This is the rod you want in your hands when the fish are back in the brush or the back edge of the weeds, and you need to beef up your line and lure size. It's light for all that extra power and the sensitivity GLX provides, which will surprise you every time you get bit. It will handle larger baits and big fish with ease and it's so light, you'll hardly remember you are holding it at the end of a long day. This is the tournament angler's choice, no matter if you're a serious pro or a weekend tournament angler.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Got the 7'11" and it is bad to the bone. balances perfect with a curado 200e7. 1/2 oz. jig w/ trailer all day. sensitivity is good. when you feel that tap tap, don't be afraid to put the hammer down.

From: Buzzy: Sugar Land, TX

Comments: I have the 853c. It is the most sensitive rod I own and I own a Kistler Zbone and Duckett white Ice.  The action is the best I've ever used for pitching. Can't wait to feel a bite on NRX rod when I purchase one next.

From: Shane: MI

Comments: I have the 895 and love it. I use it for frog fishing, swimbaits, flipping, and pitching. Haven't had any problems pulling fish out of some nasty stuff.

From: Randy: Tampa, FL

From: Keith: Upstate NY
