If you’re looking for a new weapon of choice to target redfish and speckled trout this spring, the G. Loomis E6X Inshore Rod Series fills the bill — and then some.

The E6X Series offers both performance and value, and features a lineup of 11 spinning and five casting models with either moderate fast, fast, extra fast or magnum moderate fast actions.

All the rods feature G. Loomis’ Multi-Taper Technology, where designers focus on swing weight — the proper rod balance needed to fish ‘tip up’ or ‘tip down’ techniques. 

“Proper balance lets anglers concentrate on what is happening on the end of the line, rather than the tip of the rod,” said G. Loomis’ Bruce Holt. “With the E6X series and the G. Loomis Multi-Taper Technology behind them, we can provide light, sensitive, yet powerful rods for all types of inshore saltwater techniques – what anglers know and have come to expect form G. Loomis — and all at a very comfortable price.” 

Rods range from $189 to $239, with numerous technique-specific models designed to tightline live bait, fish soft plastics, throw a popping cork, work a topwater lure and even catch larger species like tarpon, cobia, small groupers and sharks.
