G-Loomis Senko rods. Anybody?

Recommended Posts

I fish a lot of weightless Flukes and was considering this rod.  Does anyone have or used this rod?  I'm looking at the BCR893.

I think it would be way to long for me to throw flukes with. IMO

The BCR893 is an unbelievable rod, but I have only used it for senkos.  I use the BSR852 for all my Fluke needs.

LOL, I'm just the opposite.  I use baitcasting for my flukes and spinning for my senkos.

It is a fantastic rod one of the best ones in the jig and worm line up, works good for almost anything. I have not used it much for senkos, but use it alot for t rigs, lighter jigs, Stanley Ribbits, etc. If you buy the rod I have a feeling you will find more uses than just senko's.

I have the 864 and love it.  I'm sure the 893 is great as well.

I have had this rod since Christmas last year and it is OUTSTANDING!!!  It is very light and incredibly sensitive. I use it for senkos , T-rig, shakey head, and drop shot. It is my favorite rod.

You will not be dissapointed.

I have used the Senko rod for 3 years now and when it wears out I will buy the exact same rod to replace it.  I use this rod for senkos and only senkos.

I would not use this rod for flukes.  Any jerkbait, but specifically a fluke type bait is best presented with a spinning rod in my opinion.  You just cant get the action a fluke requires with this long of a rod and the mechanics of retrieving a baitcaster.

Now, for senkos - you pair this rod up with a chronarch mg50 and you are in business.  There is no better combination.  I pitch my senkos for accurate casts and quiet entry and this combo makes it flawless.

Good rod but fluke = wrong presentation in my humble opinion.

I'm surprised to see so much love for the 893.  It's been my favorite loomis for a couple of years now,  but it doesn't get mentioned very often.  It is the perfect pitchin' stick.

Redlinerobert pointed this rod out a couple of years ago. I am

surprised it doesn't get more play. More surprisingly, I don't have

one!

:D
