The G Loomis CBR781 is designed to throw small crankbaits and surface lures; this is an exceptional rod for chugging baits like the Pop-R and twitch baits like the small Spit'n Image. Throwing small, shallow-running crankbaits and vibrating/wiggle baits like Big O's or Super Spots? This is the perfect rod. It also handles 1/4 ounce buzzbaits exceptionally well. The 781 loads easily so you can cast light baits accurately, and it excels in clear water where light line and small lures are your only option.
