G-Loomis IMX MBR783C & MBR784C Rods

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

What would be the best applications for these older rods?

I thought I would use the 784 for casting/pitching worms and jigs. The 783 for spinnerbaits, underspins, and crankbaits. Am I in the ballpark here?

I also have an old Daiwa Heartland 6'6" Med. Action rod I picked up years ago, couldn't tell you where. Is this a decent rod? If so, what would it be best used for?

 

Thanks....Joe

Those rods will suit those techniques quite well.

The 783 is a crazy good weightless plastics rod as well.  I have a finesse reel on mine because there is a weightless Trickworm tied on like 50% of the time.

783c uses:

-finesse jigs and any jig up to 3/8oz.

-great top water rod

-Texas rigs

-swimbaits with belly  weighted hooks

Thank you! I assume it could be used with underpins too, ie: Spintrix Blade Runners and Owner Flashy Swimmers?

 

Thanks....Joe

For sure. I also use mine for Swim jigs and Husky jerk jerkbaits too. It's a great all around rod.

This is really it.  I use mine for more or less any and all lures in the 1/4-3/4 range.

Thanks again for all your help! I never realized that the 783c was such a jack of all trades rod, I initially bought it solely for T-rig and jigs. Putting your ideas into play I've decided to use the 784c for those applications and use the 783c for the alternate rigs you mentioned.

 

I also have a Shimano Crucial CRC-X70H that I was thinking of using if I want to try my hand at heavy cover fishing

like punching. I never had the nerve for it before!
