I have an opportunity to purchase my 1st G-Loomis bass Rod

It's a Loomis MBR 844C 7' HEAVY

I plan to use this rod as my primary Worm Rod/Jig Rod and also Flip with it...

What are yall's thoughts on how this rod preforms?

Thanks for the help!

One of the best CASTING worm, jig rods made. You'll want a little more length for flippin' and pitchin', but that one will do the trick in a pinch.

Your hands and wrist will thank you, referring to the weight of the rod after 8 to 10 hours a day.

American Legacy store has 25% off all Gloomis rods as of yesterday. I do not know how long that sale is going to last though?
