    Default G-Loomis Cross Current

    I have an option at buying a Loomis Cross Current 10 weight 3 piece. I need a 10 for a trip to Mexico as well as a false albacore tip in the fall, I am getting the rod from a guide buddy for half of what they cost new. was wondering if any of y'all own one or have an opinion. Thanks

    Loomis rods are good quality and cast nice. I don't think you will go wrong with it. I knew a rodbuilder that preferred Loomis over some of the other pricey rods on the market.

    I had one in a 6wt at one time, it was a great rod. I've thought about getting one in 9 or 10wt for stripers. Get it, it's good.

    I had a 10wt and loved it. It is a really fast rod but cast like a bullet in the wind. I used it for false albacore and stripers. They have a great quality about them, beautiful finish and feel great. You want go wrong with that rod choice especially if you like extra fast action rods. Half price is nice also.
