Looking for a G-Loomis model to throw around soft plastics for Flatties and the occassiobal soapie and rat.

Also looking for a model to interchange it for small metals to hit the pelagics and sambos.

I have a Bonzeback SMR753SSP 6'3" 1 piece 10-17lb 7-21g lure weight which I use in the boat for sambo's tailor and kings I have a certate 3500HD on it with 20lb braid .

It may be a bit heavy for your needs though, maybe a SMR882SSP 7'4" 1 piece 8-12lb 3-10g lure.

A lot of people would say for the money there is better value to be had.

In the Loomis range the Hot Shot HS9000 in either IMX or GLX would be my pick.

7'6" gives you great casting on light plastics and still punch out a 20gm raider a mile!

I have a IMX thats a few years old. I had it done in gold cermet guides and is beautifully light in hand. At the moment it has an Exist 3000 loaded with 16lb Branzino SI braid. I use it as my salmon/ light jew rod currently and is my in the mean time snapper rod as I broke my other 2 snapper rods.....

It's come North with me as my light spin rod and up there longtails/ barra's are the targets.

I don't have many Loomis rods left but this is one that I wont sell!
