I have the Loomis CR721, which is very nice, but perhpaps a little too much of a rod for 1/8 oz (or less) IMO.
I have one as well and agree, it does not perform well for me at it's lower rating, which is iirc 3/16oz. It really starts to shine around 5/16 to 3/8oz lures.
I do have a G. Loomis E6X Casting Rod 6'8" Med Hvy 803C JWR that is rated for 3/16 oz lures. So not really seeing a benefit in getting the CR721..
THis rod in this video is probably not strong enough for bass, but it is just a joy to watch him cast into little pockets.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFfDXSUAX1M&t=190s
