I have several older Loomis rods(old IMX fan), but have not bought any since they sold out to Shimano a few years ago.
My ? is this, How do the newer Loomis rods stack up against the older ones?
My favorite rod is my old IMX 9' 4wt, been fishing it for about 11 years, getting ready to give it a break for a while so I can re-wrap it.
Put the final coat on a Scott "sts" 9' 5wt blank lastnight that I had purchased about 6 years ago, cannot wait to fish it.
Not sure why I waited so long to finish it LOL.
