 An 843 is an 843. Its hard to match.


   no others? Everyone agrees that Gloomis crankbait rods are the best? from sde13 #18332  7/1/2012 11:57:35 AM
 I was hoping for a less expensive rod that had the same feel and action? anyone have any others?

It's the weekend. Traffic tends to be slowwwww on the weekend. The weekend around here is generally considered Friday through Monday morning.


As for my opinion you prob'ly won't consider it. I'm more of a minimalist type... I use Zebco stuff. $9 dollar 6'6" rod. It's cheap, but effective, and the fish don't seem to care. I've only ever fished one fisherman's pot tournament in my life. Won the big fish pot and contributed to the biggest bag (by boat) win. Caught the biggest bass of my life a couple of years ago on a Zebco rod and a Zebco 888 reel. 11 pounds 4 ounces. Haven't been fishin' since. Just seems anti-climatic if you get my meaning.

 I have two 843 and one 845. They are great crankbait rods, but are over priced. The lifetime warranty isn't that great now. You used to go into a tackle store if you broke one, and they would take one off the shelf and replace it. Not anymore. Ask you tackle shop how they handle them.


I'm considering selling mine, and buying Shimano Crucials. They do have a lifetime warranty, plus I have been told by their sells rep that Shimano makes the G Loomis now. There is about $90-$95 difference. Will depend on where you buy them.


Check them out at our tackle shop.


   Thanks for the tip and feedback from sde13 #18332  7/1/2012 5:14:30 PM
 Just trying to get some interest in the subject, at 200 a pop and all the new rods out now.
