Need advice on a G Loomis Rod
So in my opinion, I would strongly stay away from an Avid. If you go St Croix, go with something in the LT series because they behave more like a Loomis
That said, I like BigMusky12's thinking; I would'a suggested a Walleye Series WJR 751S (6'3" Mag-Light, Ex-Fast), but those puppies run $245. Even the GL2s run @ $195-220, however.
No offense, but since you're asking here, I'm kinda inclined to think that "if you have to ask, you probably wouldn't really be able to tell the difference between a "perfect" (and really expensive!) rod and a very good, but considerably more affordable rod.
And it doesn't look like Loomis even offers a 6'6" GL2 any more. Why not consider a 6'6" ML-Fast St. Croix Premier? That would run you "only" $130. OTOH, if you are more inclined to go balls-out on a new rod, I'd be all over either a 6'3" Loomis WJR 751S GLX for $385, or a 6'3" St. Croix ES63MXF Legend Elite for $370.
Just my $.02...
