The new E6X salmon rods from G. Loomis – showcased at the recent Northwest Sportsmen’s Show in Portland, Oregon – are now starting to ship.
“The E6X rods are offered in the lengths, powers and actions for all the popular lure and bait presentations for salmon fishing in both fresh and saltwater,” said Dave Brinkerhoff, a member of the G. Loomis product design team.
“By using our Multi-Taper Technology, we have been able to focus on line control and action accuracy, rod balance and blank construction. We have kept them light, but with the power needed for big fish and big waters.”
The 11-rod series includes:
- One-piece 8-foot back-bounce and 8 foot 2 inch hot-shot rods;
- Two-piece 8 foot 6 inch and 9 foot hot shot rods;
- Two-piece 9 foot, 9 foot 9 inch and 10 foot 6 inch trolling/plug rods;
- 10 foot 6 inch ‘BC’ handle rod for mooching.
All the rods have a sleek, buff blank finish and feature graphite rear and front grips.
“With our company’s roots in the Pacific Northwest, that extra passion for salmon and steelhead fishing shows in these rods,” added Brinkerhoff.
As with all G. Loomis rods, the newly-designed E6X models are handcrafted in Woodland, Washington, and are backed by the company’s lifetime warranty. Suggested retail is from $299 to $359.
