I stole a couple
« on: January 27, 2021, 06:56:44 AM »
One of the guys on a local forum listed some rods for sale.  He named several brands among which was Gloomis.  I happen to be a Gloomis fan.  I called him up and asked about bait casting and he had 2. 

He lives about 50 miles away so I drove down yesterday afternoon and bought them.  I gave $100 a piece for them.  They are GLX MBR 844c and GLX BCFR 863c.  Happy birthday to me. 

They needed a good cleaning.  I scrubbed them with Totally Awesome.  Today I will be putting shrink tubing on the handles and mounting a couple of Shimano E7 reels on them.  Look out green fish.

Iíve been using them for a long time.  They are my basics other than Ark Rods which is a company that produces rods for a lot of major brands.  They used to mfg. Falcons and we got special deals once a year.  That is gone as the owner got Alzheimer's.

Good for you, Jig Man!

Sounds like a sweet deal, especially for a birthday present!  :nod:

I mounted some reels on them today.  These are stiffer than the IMX rode that I am used to using.  They will get my heavy jigs.

I hope they work out for you  (yes)
