July 7, 2023 – Woodland, WA – G. Loomis, renowned for its commitment to innovation and excellence in fishing tackle, proudly unveils the latest addition to the legendary GLX series, the G. Loomis GLX WALLEYE. The new series will be showcased for the first time at the upcoming ICAST trade show in Orlando, Florida.

Harsh weather, big water, and finicky bites are just a sampling of the challenges faced by walleye enthusiasts. Anglers will never have to worry about missing “the tick,” as the GLX WALLEYE lineup is designed to be lightweight, responsive, and impact resistant with actions that provide ultimate sensitivity when tossing hair jigs on a weed edge, or bouncing grubs on shoal bottoms. Composed of six spinning models, the GLX WALLEYE series is poised to become the benchmark for walleye anglers.

“The introduction of the GLX WALLEYE series represents the refinement of precision and performance for walleye anglers,” said Bob Mahoney, G. Loomis Freshwater Product Marketing Manager. “At G. Loomis, we are excited to bring this remarkable rod series to market, designed specifically for those who seek the ultimate walleye fishing experience.”

Proudly handcrafted in Woodland, Washington, the GLX WALLEYE series leverages G. Loomis’ proprietary Multi-Taper Design technology to remove material where a blank is unlikely to fail and add material where it might. Combined with a proven high-modulus blank construction using a beefed-up resin system for superior impact resistance, this rod series is primed for unsurpassed durability and performance. With premium componentry chosen to provide exceptional sensitivity, GLX WALLEYE features a REC guide train and a lightweight CI4+ reel seat to provide the ultimate reel-to-rod connection. Full-cork handles complement the GLX WALLEYE lineup and the classic rod-blank color juxtaposes beautifully with the logo.
