Putting the Pro in IMX, G.Loomis's new DSR822S

Image

Introduction: With the influx of new, different, some exciting, others not so much, companies with varying interpretations of what a bass rod should be, there are a few tried, true, and enduring manufacturers that just get it right - for the most part anyway. One of a handful companies that consistently makes fishing rods we look forward to testing is G.Loomis. From GLX to NRX to the recently introduced Conquest and on, these sticks are among our favorites to fish. Somewhere around mid-2017, the company shared with us their plans to unify and simplify their mid-range product offering. We shared this news during our coverage of ICAST 2018.

Image

Essentially the company plans to consolidate their technique specific models into one singular lineup - IMX-Pro. The initial offering includes twenty seven (27) technique specific models in support of applications ranging from topwater to moving baits to bottom contact. For our first peek into the series, we decided to go WTF (What the Finesse) and check out the new, IMX-Pro DSR822S.

Just to let you guys know, you listed the rod in the review as a "light" power and Loomis has it as a mag medium power.

Thanks SJ, yes, we are aware. Loomis is the only one that uses that terminology. Their "2" power in a bass rod is a light.

I think their 1 power is light, 2 is med, 3 is med heavy and 4 is heavy.

I am glad they put a hook keeper on this one. some of their other dropshot rods have some unhappy customers that order online and find out the rod has no keeper built in.

I had Zander adjust the spec overnight when he published the latest article. Thanks Smalljaw and Hulkster.
