Unparalleled Performance at an Unparalleled Price.
The Gary Loomis Signature Series rods continue to impress new and experienced anglers alike. Gary has devised the perfect combination of new, high-tech materials to give these rods the optimum mix of power and sensitivity.
Gary's one-piece Signature rods are a rich motor oil with matching wraps highlighted by metallic copper tipping. The rods feature a skeletal grip made from premium and burl cork that is as durable as it is attractive. Signature rods incorporate TFO's color ID system to make sure you grab the correct rod when the action is hot.
Gary's Salmon/Steelhead rods are vivid translucent green with SiC guides, matching wraps and burl and premium cork grips. The super-sensitive tip and powerful butt section combine to create the ultimate fishing tool—whether you are pursuing salmon and steelhead in the Pacific Northwest or using a Float and Fly rig for smallmouth bass.
These rods are so sensitive that Gary likes to say, "You feel it when the fish looks at the bait!"
Sensing a need for a powerful, yet soft-tipped rod for large inshore species, we created the 7116 Mag Heavy rod in early 2012. The overwhelming success and popularity of this rod encouraged us to create an entire line-up of inshore rods to cover everything from speckled trout to tarpon.
GTS Inshore rods have plenty of power to subdue the toughest inshore species with enough forgiveness in the tip to throw softer, more delicate baits with ease. The blanks are matte black and finished with solid grips and fore grips made from premium cork with burl accents. The Inshore rods feature oversized Tactical Series Guides and larger reel seats to accommodate oversized spinning reels.
