G. Loomis Center Pin Rods

Center pin rods & reels are not a new concept or technique, but they are new to today’s angler. In this world of high-tech equipment, we tend to wonder “what if” we’d had these new materials and these new components for those rods we used back when? The theory behind the technique is a drag-free drift, whether you’re fishing bait on the bottom or suspending bait or jigs beneath a float. The reels, extremely smooth single-action models, resemble fly reels and have clicker drag systems to help prevent free-spooling. They have rimmed spools so the anglers can apply the necessary drag by palming the spool. The technique requires a long, light, responsive rod. The older versions were tip-heavy and that made them tiresome to fish. You would spend your entire day trying to keep that tip in a positive, upright position, all the while trying to concentrate on the bite, while battling that tip-heavy, uncomfortable feeling. That’s where G.Loomis and GLX come into play. We not only can make them longer, more responsive and dynamically lighter, but we've shifted the weight towards the butt-section of the rod . We use a blend of composite and species cork in the handle to help maintain a delicate balance at the angler’s end of the rod and split rings so you can position your reel where you want it. Add to that Recoil (nickel-titanium) guides that are about half the weight of standard guides and these rods create a pronounced “Wow!!” factor. The beauty of center pin fishing is that it’s simplistic in the approach and it doesn’t matter if you are a bait angler, lure angler or fly angler. It’s a nice traditional approach to fishing and when the fly waters are too high or even a little off color, the center pin system can not only save the day, but can be a peaceful, pleasurable experience. Just tie on a bait rig, yarn fly or even your favorite fly pattern and hang on… the rod, along with a high quality reel, will do the rest.
