We designed the G Loomis SJR721 specifically to fish lightweight jigs, grubs and minnow-type hard baits. The G Loomis SJR721 is perfectly balanced for 8-pound line and 1/4-ounce lures, but it's versatile enough to go up or down a line and still feel good. If you fish a Pop-R or similar surface lure on spinning gear, the G Loomis SJR721 is a good choice. It has a soft enough tip to cast lightweight minnow baits, yet enough authority to handle oversized surprises. Excellent for small spinnerbaits that are too light for a baitcasting outfit.
