Which is the best overall

Postby jcat » Mon Jul 02, 2018 8:12 am

Comparing Loomis E6X rods to the new Powell endurance both casting and spinning. I find minimal reviews about the new endurance rods. The original rods had everyone talking. I have a number of Powell rods and have been happy with all. This new endurance series seems to offer a lot of bang for the buck. Opinions please. Thanks

I had a gen1 e6x 853c and hatted it. Heavy and dead in my hands. I haven't felt the gen2 yet. I handled the new endurance at a fishing show this spring and was very impressed. There light and feel great in hand but i havent fished them. Ill go out on a limb and say probably one of the best rods at that price point. So i would suggest saving a little $ and go powell

I agree. I have a gen 1 e6x and it is way overpriced for what it is. Heavy and feels cheap.

Went Powell. It's less expensive across the board than the Loomis you want which is a win and I'm sure you you'd probably have to go up a few models and spend more to get the equivalent of the Endurance in performance.
