Loomis  IMX & GL3

Recommended Posts

Alotta you guys know I bought 3 new Loomy's, 2 MB's an a spinnerbait rod, I love em all. Im looking at a new spinning rod, gearing towards 6ft or under, I like the quality of the rods I have even tho they're not Loomis's best GLX.  How much will the weekender feel over the IMX and GL3 series?

Thanks Guys

The IMX series defines G. Loomis. After that,

it just depends on how important $100 is to you.

When contemplating which one to buy, remember

this: Unless you lose the rod, you will have it or a

new replacement for the rest of your life.

Go for the IMX, is at that level where GLoomis shines, there are a lot of other good rods in the GL2 and GL3 level for about the same or slightly more money.

One of the main reasons I have GL2s and GL3s is because they are priced about the same here in Mexico than in the States ( 5 dollars more ) so they are good rods and better than what we can find here like Shimano, Compres cost as much as a GL2 and they are far form being as good as a GL2 so between a Compre and a GL2 I 'd rather jump on the GL2, the same applies to Crucials, they cost about the same of an IMX, no need to say which one I would buy.

I can feel the difference between a GL2 and a GL3, between a GL3 and an IMX. Sorry to say I can 't feel that much of a difference between an IMX and a GLX.  :-/

Yeah, the IMX are sweet rods.  I wouldn't go to a GL2 or 3.

Question:  Can you feel a difference between an IMX and a St. Croix SCV Legend Elite rod?

To me, the IMX, GLX, and SCV feel all about the same with different price tags.

I have a GL2 spinning rod and two IMX casting rods.  I love my IMXs and can tell a big difference between the IMX and GL2, but have never fished a GL3 or any other rod that is in the same league as an IMX.

I recently used the expeditor service for my 10'6" surf rod. Top notch. A new $300 rod cost me $50.

I used to have a 1/2 dozen GLX rods and am now down to only two. The IMX rods are the fishing machines of the loomis line, IMHO. Mine are all built on custom blanks, and maybe that's the magic, but I don't miss the fragile (however light) GLX rods. I had four GLX rods replaced by the expiditor warranty and sold them as new to replace them with IMX blanks that would be my rod of choice. No regrets.

I have a GL3 CR724 and some here may remember me whining about it being a waste of money. I originally thought it was not very sensitive for a $160 rod. I have to retract my stupid remarks, I actually like it now after fishing it a lot more this summer and I feel it's worth what I paid for it. Maybe it's not one to get real excited about, but it's a decent stick for what I use it for.

Dang... had $$ for the new Curado E saved up... went to Sport Chalet while I got the oil changed in my car next door...... saw a Gloomis IMX MBR 782 tagged $150...........

Pulled the trigga... Figured I would mention it.  Maybe your local spot had it marked down too, but it may have been a fluke.  Neways, doesn't hurt to pass on the info.  :)
