G. Loomis' new IMX-PRO Blue Series saltwater rods come in four spinning and six casting high-performance models for inshore and light-duty offshore species, and were designed primarily for Northeast anglers. The rods feature multitaper technology and high strength-to-weight ratios. Casting rods come in three lengths from 7 feet to 7 feet, 6 inches; all spinners measure 7 feet long, with specific strengths and actions for fishing swimbaits and jigs, pitching plugs, and handling live baits and bucktails. All feature cork grips, Fuji reel seats and Fuji's new Fazlite K-Frame guides. The rods cost $350 to $385.
