    you really stepped up! i've never had a g.loomis rod in my hand, but i'm sur it's friggin awesome....
    my stinson's are around 9oz, and i wanted something really light...when your gear comes in, i'd like to check it out...that rod is supposed to be light in weight, which i'm looking for...but nobody ever lists how much the rod actually weighs, lol

    hmm....was considering the loomis, but somebody snagged the last one, lol...probably just as well...one thing i find is the more expensive the gear, the more afraid i am to use it, especially lures...the fish in my avatar was caught on a cheap h20 crank, thrown along the rocks and stickups on the shore at falcon...

    ...and the 2nd reel arrived yesterday, with a complimentary okuma jacket! will have 2 identical setups that are super lightweight...when i lift the old setup it weighs a ton in comparison...very pleased with okuma reels, since that's pretty much all i've ever used, but the rtx at 6.6oz makes my setup like a feather...
    finally, i'll never have to buy any fishing stuff ever again!

    hmm...weather looks very wet all weekend...hmm...
