The G.Loomis 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. Guides are oversize to allow for heavy knots and shock tippets.
