When you need to downsize both, line and bait for clear water or really spooky bass, the G Loomis Senko Fishing Rod will help you get the job done. The Senko rod is not a power rod by any means, but powerful enough to get the hook through all that plastic and handle big fish when necessary. It's finesse fishing, but it's not. If you're not into baitcasting rigs, this rod can really make a difference in your success at the end of the day. The extra-fast taper helps create low trajectory casts which are important when fishing a really light bait, especially in the wind. It's a big plus for accuracy as well and gives you a super-positive hookset. G Loomis' proprietary GLX which makes it ultra-sensitive!
