The G. Loomis SJR843 IMX is a really sensitive deep-water worm and jig rod… especially in situations where some current is involved. It has a medium-heavy power tip that will handle lure weights of up to ¾ ounce. The extra length extends your casting range and it has the power to get your bait out there where you want it. It’s a great choice for big pike and big, deep-water largemouths. Saltwater anglers will appreciate this rod for snook and small tarpon, plus it makes a perfect redfish rod for jigs or spoons. The quick taper gives you better control in the wind and positive hook-sets for live bait applications. IMX makes it very light weight and incredibly sensitive.
