Built for experienced hands, G. Loomis designs tools for anglers demanding performance with purpose. For those who believe innovation is the only path to excellence. Steeped in experience gained from handcrafting rods in the United States for over four decades, the revamped GLX BASS series represents tangible proof of our disciplined philosophy of "continuous refinement."

With structural upgrades achieved through a proprietary blend of high-modulus graphite and advanced resin technologies, the GLX BASS series features rod blanks with boosted strength-to-weight ratios, heightened balance, and pumped sensitivity. Rolled on "stepped mandrels" machined with micro-tapers at specific points within the overall taper, G. Loomis engineers isolate and reinforce areas likely to fail under load to provide maximum durability. In addition to industry-leading break strength, this design innovation also aids in tuning unique flex patterns for technique-specific actions, including the 11 found only in the GLX BASS lineup.

All GLX BASS models come equipped with a full tangle-free Fuji K SiC guide train to improve line management and reduce overall weight. Premium cork handles complement custom CI4+ reel seats designed to amplify an angler’s connection to the blank for enhanced bite transmission and all-day comfort.

A nod to the early days of G. Loomis, the GLX BASS series boasts a "modern throwback" aesthetic, exemplifying elegance in simplicity. Designed and rolled entirely in our facility in Woodland, Washington, GLX BASS embodies our relentless drive to forge the tournament-ready tools required for anglers to be the best at what they do.

  • Ci4+ Reel Seat

    Ci4+ Reel Seat

    CI4 is an original material reinforced with carbon fiber that is lighter and has a higher strength than conventional resin material. CI4+ is an advanced version of the original CI4 material and is 2.5x more rigid than its predecessor. The use of CI4+ for the reel seat increases sensitivity and reduces weight while also delivering remarkable rigidity for perfect reel fixation and better rod efficiency.



    Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water. While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.

    Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
