Was hoping to get some input on G-Rods. How good are they? Looking for honest opinions on the good as well as bad. Thanks

I've used Loomis for a long time and I'm in the process of changing my entire collection to G-Rods. I've been fortunate to see most all rods G-Rods makes and even test them alongside their "competitors" versions of the same size and style. When I compared my favorite rods to G-Rods, my mind was blown. There's not a stitch of competition for G-Rods on the market.

These rods are in a league of their own and the price is insanely cheaper than "equivalent" high modulus rods.

If anyone wants buy a few Loomis SJR 6400s, please PM me.

Glen and staff are great people and they offer spectacular rods.

My tournament partner is on their pro staff and is more than happy with his rods. We do not have a 12' rod at BoneHead yet and needed the length for the Palestine CAT tournament earlier this season. Glen was sold out at the time but let me borrow his personal 12' rear seat rod. We absolutely tore the shallow fish up pulling them out of thick cat tails with no problem. At one time I set the hook on a massive black bass while doodle socking. She was 9#s easy and the rod handled her perfectly. Lost her at the boat.

Mr. Smith, these are without a doubt the best rods I have ever used, hands down. Fresh water, salt water, fly fishing, you name it. If you still have my number, give me a shout and I'll give you all the information I can.

***On a side note, Mr. Miller (the owner and inventor) is a person that I really enjoy having in the industry. Aside from being a great guy to work with, he is an extremely passionate and accomplished angler. Him, his family and all the folks that I've gotten to know at G-Rod continue to impress me.

I have also used a lot of the competition, and they just do not compare! These are the Cadillacs of rods. I have never held a rod in my hands that was as sensitive as the G-Rod. There are lots of really good carbon fiber rods out there, but only one great one in my opinion. I also swapped out all of my rods to G-Rods as Jerry T above did!

Sweet rods. I have the 10'6" and it will darn sure put a hook in their lip. It will get a little heavy in your hand at the end of the day, but that's just because I'm a has-been that wears a t-shirt in the pool. And like Laner said, Glenn is just downright passionate about this sport. I recall my first phone call to G-Rods to inquire about their rods, little did I know I would be on the phone for 45mins with the owner Glenn and know absolutely everything there is to know about his product. Get ya a G-Rod and be happy....

G Rods are AWESOME!! I have TWO OF THEM. $$$

That said, I am a huge fan of TICA rods, Pro Angler Rods, SouthernCrappieRods.com, and based on a thread from a couple weeks ago I bought a couple ACC CRAPPIE STIX...I like them a lot!

TICA Rods Run about $55-$60
SOUTHERNCRAPPIE RODS $35 Great Rod and Sensitive
Pro Angler Can't remember what I paid right off hand.

My newest rods the ACC CRAPPIE STIX...Got two 8 footers in Green. $52 a piece. Very Sensitive and a GREAT ROD for the price. I will be using them for a while as I really like the rods a lot.

Some good rod manufacturers above to fit everyone's budget.

Good Luck on whatever you decide.

So many good ones to pick from for sure...That's why I own rods from all of them.

I can recommend any of the above hands down as Sensitive and great rods for catching Crappie! thumb

I fished with Glen and some of the G Rod guys this week. They are super guys and I wish good things for them. No doubt they build a high quality rod. I don't see how you could be disappointed.

Thanks for all the input. Lane I have lost your phone #, and your TFF account is full of PM's, I did send you a message on your CPO website. Maybe you could email me your #. I would love to talk to you again. I guess I should have asked what rod length is the most versatile. I have used 8' & 10' for years. Mostly fish BP,timber, and shoot docks.

My G Rods are as good a crappie rod that I've had in my hand.

One thing they need to add is a hook keeper.

I gave up trying to find a dealer that had any in stock, so I bought another BoneHead. Do any G-Rod dealers stock the 8 foot rod yet?
