GLoomis Doubles Down on IMX Pro - New MBR, SJR, and CR Bass Rods


Date: 7/9/19
Location: Orlando, FL
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Shimano
Reviewer: Zander

Introduction: The IMX-Pro line has been a winner for the company which is known by many for their high end GLX and NRX lines. Last season the IMX-Pro line went application specific and brought back many of the actions that G.Loomis Mag Bass fans loved. This season the company is doubling down, and introducing 17 new "Classic Action" rods.


There won't be a whole new line of G.Loomis Rods this year but there are a lot of model additions to the popular IMX-Pro line


Back to Roots: Answering the call from G.Loomis fans the company went back to their roots with the addition of new Classic Action rods across Mag Bass (MBR), Spin Jig, and Classic Casting.


The seven new Mag Bass (MBR) action casting rods will all exhibit magnum tapers and light tips to facilitate long cast and deep-water hooking abilities. The line-up will include 6’6”, 7’ and 7’6” rods, all with a parabolic action to absorb extended runs from smallmouth and largemouth bass.

Originally designed for use with soft plastics, the eight new IMX-PRO Classic Spin Jig (SJR) rods are designed to provide the best alternative for anglers who favor spinning applications where a casting rod is usually prescribed.


In models for finesse techniques to power fishing, the SJR rods will include 6’ models for vertical jigging, swimming lures, as well as smaller waters, standard 6’6” and 7’ rods, and 7’6” specifically designed for the growing use of hair jigs and spy-baits for smallmouth.

In addition there will also be two new 6’ IMX-PRO Classic Casting (CR) rods which have been specifically created for applications when anglers need to make precise casts when fishing small topwater lures, small crankbaits, or to pitch and skip a jig into tight quarters.

With the addition of these seventeen new "Classic Action" rods, the IMX-PRO series is now G. Loomis’ most extensive line-up of bass rods, with a total of 64 different models to cover the complete spectrum of bass fishing applications and techniques. These new rods will be available in the next few weeks and retail from $325 to $345 depending on the model.
