Alternative to G.Loomis GLX BCR854?

Recommended Posts

I bought a Shimano Core 100MG off the Flea Market last night.

Although I am pretty focused on the rod I plan to match up with

this reel, I would like to hear what others have to say or suggest.

This will be used as an alternative to a MBR844C for big soft plastics

and jigs exclusively.

Thank you.

RW,

Take a look at both the Kistler lineup and the Powell Line up.  I have fished both, and love them.  The Powell rods can not be beat for the price with weight and sensitivity on par with much more expensive rods.  Also you might want to call Outlaw rods and talk to the owner there.  He is a great guy and will help you out.   His rods are all like 129.00 with a great warranty.  Plus they are American made blanks, and built up here in the states as well.

i think that core would be sweet on one of those new legened extremes ..... that 7ft med-hev fast ,,, it weighs in just over 4oz ... i bet that core would ballance it out nice .... perfect rod for jigs and plastics  ;D

Dude, LE 's wood grain like reel seat and pearl brownish finish don 't match the pearlescent black and red accents of the Core eusa_snooty.gif, it don 't look good ! eusa_naughty.gif If the reel were red ( like a Fuego ) or mattè pastel red ( like a 2005 Pixy ) or frosted gold ( 2003 Pixy ) or shiny gold ( Sol ) then it would look good. :)

Man i got a lot to learn about reel etiquette. No experience  with this but a complie-x i know daiwa shimano un holy, but  would look fabulous or maybe a Japanese rod like a megabass super destroyer.

I have the GLX BCR854C and that is about as close to what I would site for my specifications (plus the warranty will be on the whole rod and not just the blank).

Where have you been? Looks like we might be having a party up your way over Labor Day. Are you going to be around or are you already tied up?
