WOODLAND, Wash. USA – Now Available – G. Loomis’ IMX-PRO series offer the largest range of rods for all current bass fishing techniques, with 23 ‘reaction’ rods for lure specific uses, including crankbaits, swimbaits, spinnerbaits, umbrella rigs, topwater and frogs, and 24 IMX-PRO ‘bottom contact’ rods for jig and worm, Carolina rig, flip/punch, drop-shot and shaky head techniques.

“This extensive line-up of IMX-PRO rods offer the perfect actions serious tournament anglers look for,” said G. Loomis’ Bruce Holt, “and with these technique specific designations, these rods can help avid anglers become more advanced and competitive.”

The extensive line-up of IMX-PRO bass rods will be a highlight of the G. Loomis booth at this weekend’s Bassmaster Classic Expo in Knoxville, Tenn. Bass anglers can also look over other G. Loomis rod series, including the Conquest rods developed jointly with Shimano, and the NRX, GLX and E6X rods.

All IMX-PRO rods feature blanks designed with exclusive G. Loomis materials - a blend of resin and fibers to gain the ultimate strength to weight benefit, Fuji ‘K’ frame Alconite guide train, and more fishing comfort from increased palm swell to the full cork grips. According to Holt, the IMX-PRO rods “take advantage of on-going improvements in both our manufacturing processes and materials. We rely on G. Loomis’ proprietary Multi-Taper technology to design the IMX-PRO blanks to fish specific techniques, and then strategic scrim placement is used to create very specific tapers to enhance the action for each of those techniques.”

He notes the blanks are up to 18% lighter than comparable E6X rod blanks. “Anglers will quickly sense a noticeable step above performance improvement over previous IMX rods,” said Holt, “and will note the details we put into each – like the double-footed hook keepers that are best suited for the lures used with the reaction rods.”

All the IMX-PRO bottom contact rods feature tangle-free Fuji K-Frame guides to help with slack line techniques. “Plus to provide the maximum in comfort, anglers will find all 24 rods offer subtly tapered full cork rear grips,” said Holt, “yet designed to give you that split-grip feel many bass anglers favor.”

As with all G. Loomis rods, the IMX-PRO Series is handcrafted in Woodland, Washington USA. For more information on all 47 rods offered in the IMX-PRO Bass Series, visit gloomis.com (IMX-PRO Bass Rods), call 800/GLoomis, or stop by your nearest G. Loomis tackle dealer.
