G.Loomis E6X Comes to Inshore Saltwater

WOODLAND, Washington — Fishing coastal waters, be it flats, bays or estuaries, anglers rely on a variety of both lure and live bait techniques to achieve success. With the introduction of the new E6X Inshore rods they now can rely on known G. Loomis fishing rod performance in this series of 11 spinning and five casting models with either moderate fast, fast, extra fast and Magnum moderate actions.

The new E6X inshore rods incorporate G. Loomis’ Multi-Taper Technology, where G. Loomis rod engineers focus on ‘swing-weight’ – the proper rod balance needed for inshore lure and bait 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 Multi-Taper Technology and our E6X blank construction, we can provide light, sensitive, yet powerful rods for all types of inshore saltwater techniques, letting anglers focus on the feeling the bite instead of dealing with the fatigue that goes with fishing a poorly balanced rod. It’s all about providing the traits anglers can expect from G. Loomis – and at a very comfortable price.”

Holt notes that saltwater anglers will find moderate-fast action rods in 7- and 8-foot lengths for fly-lining live shrimp, and for use with soft plastics and smaller popping corks. Fast action rods – in 6-foot-6, 7- and 7-foot-6-inch lengths – are designed for topwaters, soft plastics and jigs on the flats and in deep-water cuts, and also for use while wading or fishing shoreline cover.

The new E6X inshore rods also include 7-foot-6-inch extra fast action models for when extra long casts are the demand. Whether you’re scouring the flats bonefish casting to redfish in the marsh, no target will seem ‘to far’. When extra power is needed – those times when fishing cut or live bait for bigger fish like tarpon, cobia, small groupers and sharks – anglers can also check out the E6X Magnum-moderate action 7-foot rods. All the rods are one-piece models with full cork handles.

“Offered from $189 to $239, inshore anglers who have never fished our rods now have the ideal series to experience both the performance and passion that is G. Loomis,” Holt said. “We’ll help you catch more fish – or at least put the right tools in your hand to give you an advantage, and also make your day on the water even more enjoyable.”

As with all G. Loomis rods, the new E6X Inshore Saltwater rods are handcrafted in Woodland, Washington USA, and are backed by G. Loomis’ limited lifetime warranty and ‘Xpeditor’ service. For more information, visit gloomis.com, call 800/GLoomis, or stop by your nearest G. Loomis tackle dealer.
