IMX SALMON TROLLING
Whether you're trolling, drifting with the tide or motor mooching, you need a rod with a butt-section powerful enough to help you control a large salmon, but soft enough in the upper half of the blank to allow the fish to mouth the bait until they are ready to eat it. The strike is very visual and can be difficult to figure out at times. The best bet is to let the salmon strike, mouth the bait and then let him take it. Sometimes, the fish pull the rod tip all the way into the water, other times all you get is slack, but it really doesn't matter... just grab the rod and hang on. Do you really need a rod that's incredibly light and sensitive when it may only be fished from a rod holder? Not really, but when you fight fish all day long you'll really appreciate the light weight and power that IMX delivers. It puts you in total control and takes all the work out of it.

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.
