Re: g loomis crosscurrent
It has been a few years since I casted a Crosscurrent (not to be confused with the CC GLX). I would consider it fast, but not uber fast like the CC GLX. I really don't know how to compare it to some of the newer generations of rods.
Here's what you do. Since you are limited in brands locally, test the Crosscurrent along with a Sage Flight and a TFO Axiom in the same length and line weight. All these rods are fast action, but they have their own distinct feels. One of the three should click for you.
