Glx 842 vs 843 handle length question.

Postby arrowslinger1 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 2:00 pm

Is the 842 handle shorter than the 843? It shows it to be on the tackle warehouse site but not on the loomis site. Not sure which one is correct.
This would be the newest style rod.

Anyone have both that could compare for me?
Thanks !

There was an early and very limited run of MBR 842's with a shorter handle than what's standard on the 2016 843 and 844. i inquired because I took my demo rod out of the first run we received at the shop and noticed the shorter handle. I was informed by a friend at Loomis that they should all be the same length and that those few shorter ones were "unique" as very few of them were made. All subsequent 842's we've gotten at the shop have all been the same length as the 843 and 844.
