On sale for the first time at the Bassmaster Classic this weekend will be the new E6 rod series from G.Loomis.
The US company says that its new offerings are designed around a performance platform with the focus on weight, balance, sensitivity and action. The series includes 30 casting and spinning rods, offered in both technique specific models with exacting actions, and ‘Classic’ models with easy to cast, more forgiving behaviour for use with a variety of lures.
The new E6X rod series introduces anglers to what G.Loomis rod designers refer to as a ‘swing-weight’, the proper balance needed when fishing ‘tip up’ techniques like pitching/flipping and casting tubes, jigs, soft plastic jerkbaits and dropshot rigs and ‘tip down’ lures like crankbaits, spinnerbaits or swimbaits.
“Proper balance lets anglers concentrate on what is happening on the end of the line, rather than the tip of the rod,” said Bruce Holt, of G. Loomis. “With the E6X series and our Multi-Taper Technology behind them, we can provide light, sensitive, yet powerful, rods for all types of bass fishing techniques – what anglers know and come to expect from G.Loomis and all at a very comfortable price.”
There are 12 E6X technique specific casting rods designed for jig and worm use, for flipping and punching, crankbait and spinnerbait specific, along with four spinning models for small jigs, tubes and worms, plus two dropshot spinning rods.
Both the casting and spinning jig and worm rods have extra-fast tips, the crankbait models slower, softer actions, while stiff, powerful actions are found on the flip/punch rods and unique actions are featured on the spinnerbait, swimbait and dropshot models.
They all feature split grip handles with cork grips, along with Fuji reel seats and guides.
The Classic multi-purpose E6X models include six ‘Mag Bass’ and flipping action casting rods and six spin jig spinning rods. They have fast tapers with powerful butt sections and load easily for casting. All come with full cork grips, Fuji guides and Fuji exposed blank trigger reel seats.
“Offering both performance and value, just about all anglers can experience what G.Loomis rods are all about,” added Holt. “The rods really do become a natural extension of you, providing the fish-catching fingertip sensitivity that anglers who know expect from G. Loomis.
“And while we have a main focus on bass fishing, anglers will discover E6X rods have great actions and lengths for walleye, northern pike and inland stripers.”
