The new IMX Salmon Trolling Rods, or “SATR” for short, is a series of freshwater salmon fishing rods designed for trolling applications. G. Loomis engineered these rods using the latest in fishing rod technology resulting in a finished product that was lighter, more sensitive and stronger than their IMX predecessors. Comprised of a single model - IMX 1174-2C SATR -, G. Loomis latest IMX Salmon Trolling Rod offers the ideal action and length desired for the technique. Whether you're trolling, drifting with the tide or motor mooching, you need a rod with a butt-section powerful enough to help you control a large salmon, but soft enough in the upper half of the blank to allow the fish to "mouth" the bait until they are ready to eat it. The strike is very visual and can be difficult to figure out at times. The best bet is to let the salmon strike, mouth the bait and then let him take it. Sometimes, the fish pull the rod tip all the way into the water, other times all you get is slack, but it really doesn't matter... just grab the rod and hang on. Do you really need a rod that's incredibly light and sensitive when it may only be fished from a rod holder? Not really, but when you fight fish all day long you'll really appreciate the light weight and power that IMX delivers. It puts you in total control and takes all the work out of it.
The release of the new 2014 G. Loomis IMX Rods offers anglers a whole new level of sensitivity and strength in rods that are up to 15% lighter than the original IMX series. With surprising power to weight ratios, the SATR series of salmon trolling rods is exactly what you need when it comes to trolling. The G. Loomis IMX SATR is available in a single a model.
