G. Loomis Bronzeback Rods?

Recommended Posts

I purchased a Loomis SMR753S-SP last year and like it so far.  It's great for deep open water.

Has anybody tried the casting rods in the Bronzeback line?  Good, bad and how do they compare to the IMX line of rods.

Thanks for any info.

I have not experienced the IMX rods yet, but made two 7 foot Loomis Bronze crankbait rods.  They are said to be a blend of graphites in order to get the light weight, sensitivity, and still have a sort of soft action for cranks.

They are in fact super light, a pleasure to cast, and handle big bass with ease.  I love the rod.  Some recommend glass for casting cranks, but if they ever tried one of the loomis crankbait rods, they would never go back to the heavy, dull, unresponsive, glass rods.

The ones I made are the light end of a series of two or three crankbait rods that Loomis offers.  I like them on the softer side because I use braid most of the time, cast lures smaller than 1/2 ounce a lot, and softer rods are easier on the arm for casting for long periods of time.  

I'm only talking about baitcasting rods-not sure if that is what you are asking about.
