G. Loomis IMX Umbrella Rig Rods

The G. Loomis IMX Umbrella Rig Rods are a pair of two casting rods specifically designed for the umbrella rig technique that utilizes several swimbaits to mimic a school of shad. The effectiveness of an umbrella rig is the result of making bass think there's a small school of baitfish swimming by just waiting to be eaten. Depending on the state laws, these rigs, built like the framework of an umbrella, have as many as five or six swimbaits connected to the arms that wiggle along, enticingly behind this wire structure to emulate that school of baitfish. Fishing the rig isn't difficult, but casting and controling it can be. It requires power for the extra weight, a dynamic tip to help cast the rig and a comfortable handle to maintain control during the entire experience. G. Loomis proprietary IMX technology allows us to make a light, yet sneaky powerful rod that excels in casting, controlling and fishing the rig while giving the angler total confidence when that fish of a lifetime takes the bait.

Fishing an umbrella rig is kind of like casting a brush pile, but it doesn't have to be difficult. This rod is designed with a smooth, progressive power taper that allows the rod to unload without buckling the tip. It's designed to fish the smaller umbrella rigs, but still has more than enough power to handle big fish. IMX makes it incredibly sensitive so there's no doubt about what you feel at the end of the line. It's got all the power you need and just enough length to manage long, accurate casts and still enjoy fishing it all day long!

We offer both models of the G. Loomis IMX Umbrella Rig Rods - see the chart below for specs and additional details.

IMX Umbrella Rig Rod Models

Model Number Length Handle Style Pieces Line Weight Lure Weight Action Power
IMX 915C UBR 7'7" D 1 40 - 65lb Braid 2 - 6oz Fast Heavy
IMX 916C UBR 7'7" D 1 50 - 80lb Braid 2-6oz+ Fast Extra Heavy

915C UBR

The IMX 915C UBR is the standard umbrella rig rod in the series designed for combined lure weights between 2 and 6oz - which covers most of your standard 5 wire models of Alabama Rigs. This rod has the backbone to handle the big fish, the power to heave the contraption a mile and the fast taper to allow the rod to load up properly upon casting. Many umbrella rig rods simply cannot handle the constant load of the 5 attached baits, but the G. Loomis IMX 915C UBR is up to the challenge.

916C UBR

The heavier of the two Umbrella Rig models, the IMX 916C UBR is designed for your extra wire models that increase the overall weight of the presentation. While the big leagues may have banned the umbrella rig in competition, the technique remains a fun and exciting way to target giant bass. The 916C UBR provides the right stick for the job and lets you fish the rig all day without fatigue or fear of breaking equipment.
