This is a great approach for getting results in lakes where the fish get a lot of pressure and have seen about every type of bait you can imagine. Shallow, deep, near cover or open water, the ShakyHead rig is highly effective when the going gets tough. It's a unique style that requires a special rod action to impart a quiver into a finesse worm mounted on a jighead by subtly shaking the rod tip. It takes some practice, but it can really make a tough day special. There are three spinning models in the GLX Series with split-grip handles, a custom G.Loomis ultra-light reel seat and Fuji Titanium SIC guides & tip-top. When the fish are difficulty to catch, this will get their attention like no other technique! Bottom line... more fish in the boat at the end of the day!!

GLX technology helped G. Loomis to make an unmistakable impression on the angling community. Predecessor to the NRX, the GLX graphite system is a proven high-modulus blend coupled with an incredibly durable resin system. A cornerstone of the G. Loomis family for 20+ years, rods built on this platform are lightweight, responsive, and impact resistant. Providing a unique feel paired with a legendary reputation for durability, the GLX continues provide the benchmark technology suite for countless anglers worldwide.
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.
