G Loomis ex6 rod choice

8 posts in this topic

So I'm looking for a new multi purpose finesse spinning rod for shallow skinny water smallmouth and was looking at the ex6 I like the 6'8-6'10 but obviously one is drop shot other regular spinning so my question is which one would you choose and does the mag m power helpful or gimmick

I personally wouldn't go with a drop shot rod for an all purpose rod.

Are you going to be using this rod for multiple baits? I have no advice on the ex6 series but I have a mag-medium loomis shakey head rod that I use when I wade for river smallmouth. It's a great all around rod for that purpose. It has a soft tip that shuts off quickly with good backbone. It's great for smaller jigs and tubes and is GREAT for throwing smaller cranks in shallow snaggy river bottoms.

I have the SJR842 in GL3 and it is an awesome all purpose rod for lures/tubes etc. up to 3/8 oz. The same rod is also offered in E6X and there is also a slightly heavier SJR843 in E6X for up to 5/8oz lures.

 

both would be excellent all purpose spinning rods. Personally, I like to fish on the lighter end of things so I would get the SJR842 E6X. I have an E6X MBR baitcasting rod and really like it. The E6X rods are great blanks

You took. The words out of my mouth that's exactly what I do and I want something a tad shorter then 7' cause narrow areas and mainly throwing baits no more then 3/8 at least on spinning tackle thank you guys both for the advice something about it just stood out and perfectly a local tackle shop. Has Mark Zona shimano g loomis reps and a few others for a event so I'll might get myself a belated gift
