They are a awesome. I'm currently swapping over to them one by one. Very sensitive, very light and extremely strong. I would highly suggest putting one in your hands and giving it a try if your in the market for a new rod. Also, Glenn's Game Changer series was supposed to be out last month (think it has been delayed till December) but they utilize the same blank as the Pro Bass, just lower grade components. They cost quite a bit less than the Pro Bass, but the selection is not a expansive as the Pro Bass. Book a trip with Mark Pack if you want to try one out first hand. They are the rods he uses. My favorite setup, and the one I use the most is the 7'3 MH with a MGXtreme which comes in at a total weight of 10.1 ounces (not counting for the line). My other rods feel like a chunk of lead after using the g-rod.

I met up with Glenn just yesterday and he brought along 20 or so rods to look at. I really like the Game Changer 7'3" MH as well. The only G-Rod I have now is a 7' Crappie series rod. I fish it along with a Dobyns Extreme. I like the G-rod at less than half the price. Lighter, more sensitive and way more power.

I do on Lake Fork. G-Rods with Graphene and Toray Carbon Fiber are the most advanced rod blanks ever. The patent pending technology creates a strong, yet lightweight rod. Their sensitivity is unbelievable and lightweight make for less fatigue. The 7'6" MH is a staple for me on Fork.

I can't wait for the new Pro Bass Series 7' 3" Hvy.

The new Game Changer Series Mag Crank 7'11" is awesome.

I also have had the pleasure of be able to use G-rods. I am in agreement with everyone else. Awesome rods! They have put some big fish in the boat for me. The material provides a combination of lightness and power you don't see in other rod blanks. I absolutely love the 7'6" MH rod. You won't be disappointed if you decide to buy some. My next purchase will be the mag crank game changer that senkosmith referenced!

We sell these at the store I work at in Dallas. I haven't fished with one yet but the feedback we receive from our customers is always positive. Lightweight and powerful rods

I have 3 of the g rods. Love em. I have the shimano cores mounted on them light weight and strong core set up is a good balance. Pure greatness. My favorite is the m/h 7.5. Good all around choice for bass fishing.

I made contact with G-Rods by email two days ago about their pro trout rods. Received a personal phone call from Glenn the next day. We talked over 30 minutes over the phone about his rods, the tech, and other fishing stuff. I was coming into DFW for Thanksgiving, and Glenn asked if I would like to meet up to see the rods in person. I was not going to turn down an offer like that. Met Glenn today. Great guy! He brought almost his entire rod line up for me to look at! WOW!! Seeing and feeling is believing! I left educated on the new rods, and absolutely stunned at the quality and actions. I will be switching all of my rods over to G-rods! I am a gear freak and JDM guy. This is a serious comment for me. Game Changer is not just a rod name, this is what G -Rods is doing to rod building material IMO. I have always been a JDM rod fan. The rods I looked at today were immaculate. I cant wait to get time on the water with these rods. Having the owner of the company take time to personally meet me and show me his product speaks volumes. I am a G-Rod fan!!!
