G Loomis SWBR953C

Recommended Posts

I just recently received the CBR855C GLX in the mail today. I went down to the lake to see what it can do. It is AWESOME for lipless crankbaits and crankbaits that dive up to about 10 feet deep. Any deeper running crankbait is just a little too much for it. So in looking for a deep diving crankbait rod made by G Loomis (I am a G Loomis brand guy) I came across the new SWBR953C, which seems like it would be perfect for deep divers (as well as those hollow body paddle tail swimbaits). Does anyone have any experience with this new rod? Thanks in advance! (I did post this in another forum, just to cover more ground for advice. So if you saw this before, please disregaurd)

I have never used the 953 swimbait rod (I do own the 955 and 957) and just noticed the other day that they added a new swimbait rod to their lineup. My problem with the Loomis crankbait series is that it lacks a magnum cranker and the handles are too short. If you want a magnum crankbait rod I would suggest you ask users of Dobyns, Powell 806, and the new KVD sticks.

Also let us know how the 855 GLX crankbait stick works out for you. I was wondering if the GLX is worth the extra dough. Afterall it is just a cranking rod.

I had the CBR906, which was nice for lipless crankbait, but in using it for crankbaits, I found the rear handle just too short.  With the CBR855 GLX, the rear handle doesn't seem to be as short (even though it is the same length as the CBR906).  In casting lipless crankbaits today, I noticed a huge different in feel and was able to tell if that lipless crankbait even touched a blade of grass.  I felt really nice, but I will keep you posted with a more detailed review the more I use it.  

Part of my attraction to the SWBR953 is the long rear handle, which I would like in a deep diving crankbait rod.

They have added a couple of new crankbait model this year. I hope that they continue to add to this line and come out with a magnum cranker. I want to get the CBR 756 for topwater and big jerkbaits.
