St. Croix legend elite vs. G. Loomis IMX spinning rod

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a high end rod to pair up with a Shimano Stradic FI 2500 and have been looking closely at the St. Croix legend elite and extreme spining rods as well as G. Loomis IMX spinning rods. I am looking to create a versatile combo to fish plastics (senkos), small crankbaits, etc. Most likely it will be a 7' m power rod with fast action. If you know of any better rods on the market let me know. thanks

My main rod for weightless soft plastics is an ES70MF.

I also have an EC70MHF for 3/4 oz Ledgebuster and

Mattlures Baby Bass. The Legend Elite Series is quite

comparable to the G. Loomis IMX series. However, the

power ratings are not. St. Croix M = MH (843) G. Loomis.

So, roadwarrior, does this mean that St. Croix rods generally run more powerful or G. Loomis runs lighter power? I had never heard of this before.

I think G. Loomis rods are slightly lighter than their power

rating would indicate. Although I am very happy with my

ES70MF, I think you should compare it with the SJR843S

and see what you think.

To confirm what RW said...  a H Loomis is like a MH St. Croix...  example: the MBR844 would be comparable to a **70MHF in whichever series you want to compare.  (I haven't owned any St. Croix spinning blanks so I can only confirm this in casting rods)
