The Popping Rod series was originally designed to cast live shrimp under a popping cork for saltwater flats species like seatrout and redfish. As anglers will, they quickly discovered these rods worked exceptionally for fishing soft plastics and small jigs for bonefish, small snook and other flats regulars. They have soft tips that allow the bait to land quietly, even on long casts. They come in various lengths for different fishing applications including artificial lures such as spoons, bucktails or surface lures. In spite of their featherweight feel, these are surprisingly strong rods capable of handling large fish, including that occasional small tarpon or oversized snook. They feature quality cork handles, Fuji reel seats and Fuji guides. The reel seats have blank-thru construction, with a cutaway in front of the trigger exposing the blank for additional sensitivity on the casting models. Actions vary from moderate-fast to extra-fast. Guides are oversize to allow for heavy knots and shock tippets. There are eight 1-piece and two 2-piece spinning models

    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.
