A unique technique where fishing from a boat positioned at the head of a good run, you drop a bait rig to the bottom and slowly feed line out as you bounce it along the bottom, back toward the fish in the middle of their holding water. It forces them to react and that's why back-bouncing is so effective. When they engulf the bait and all but jerk the rod out of your hands, sensitivy isn't critical, but more times than not, they just swim up behind the bait, hold it for a moment, crushing the eggs and if you're not on top of things, just let go. You need a rod that is light, powerful and sensitive. Thanks to our IMX technology, you get all that in one incredible package.... it's the ultimate in back-bouncing rods!

Since 1982, we’ve pushed the boundaries of manufacturing technology, materials innovation, and product design. That’s why G. Loomis rods deliver superior performance, heightening angler experience and effectiveness on the water. While there are countless examples of this philosophy in action, one technology in particular encapsulates our drive to build the most advanced rods in the world: Multi-Taper Design.
Multi-Taper Design is best described as a series of “micro-tapers” within the overall taper of the rod. This unique, proprietary process allows us to use more material on potential break points and less material everywhere else. To accomplish this, we manufactured a custom rolling table...and it’s the only one in existence today. The result is a catalog of precisely defined actions that strike a perfect balance between durability and performance.
