Jerkbait Rod #5. G. Loomis SBR812
« on: March 25, 2017, 03:57:20 PM »

Went to Cabelas after work last night. I was looking for a new Jerkbait rod. Just wasn't satisfied with the 13 Fishing 6'7 MF.

I was actually set on getting a Dobyns Sierra 683 or 684. They had both in stock and I messed with them for about half an hour. I was kinda turned off. Tip felt good and had plenty of give, but the rod was much heavier than what I thought. Both blanks didn't feel as sensitive as I had thought and didn't balance like I wished.

Spent another hour messing with stuff until I can across this Loomis. It's actually marked as a Spinnerbait rod. 6'9" MXF. I can't explain it, but the tip is an XF, but 6" down from the tip is has a ton of give. Then a ton of backbone. I know it labeled a 2 power, but I've always felt the Loomis 2 power is closer to a typical 2.5-3 power.

Spoiled it up with #8 FC Sniper. May be next week before I can try it out. I've got high hopes for this go around.

I was going to put my Aldebaran MG7 on a rod, but the XT was a perfect match. I even threw an Aldebaran MG spool in to add some gold to match the rod!

Thanks. I was hoping you would chime in ;)

I had the JBR653 but didn't like now the tip and midsection acted. This 812 is hard to describe. Its kinda exactly what I wanted, or what I think I wanted.

Cabelas is really good about keeping store inventory online up to date with what's actually in stock.
