GLX verses IMX

Recommended Posts

I tried a Imx sjr 721 6' that a friend of mine brought along fishing the other day. Sweet rod. Then I went to the tackle shop and checked out a Glx sjr 721 6'. Same spec's for each rod. It seemed to me that the Glx was a little stiffer rod than the Imx. Could it be that the Glx has a little more backbone than the Imx for the same spec rod? The shop did not have a Imx in stock so I could not compare them side by side. Is it just my imagination?

Hmmm...what I have found is that the GLX has a little more of a "crisp" feel when holding it, but functions with a little softer action than the IMX's.

The GLX is a lighter blank and faster action so what you probably felt was a lighter, more delicate tip making the rod feel heavier (in power) in the mid to lower sections.  The lighter rod usually feels a hair more powerful as well.

The biggest issue with the IMX is wishing you had

bought the GLX.

Or wished to have the 100+ extra bones to get the GLX.  ;)

However, there 's nothing "wrong" in an IMX.  :)

Didn't mean it that way...In fact, I recently

bought a IMX MBR784C as a dedicated striper

rod. For moving baits especially, the IMX is

the ticket.

Allot of truth in those words. There is always another step up. Fun does not necessarily mean better equipment but it sure does not hurt the process either.

I've noticed the same thing in general.  It's especially true when comparing the MBR 783, 843, and 844 models.
