Float Rod
Manufacturers Description:
"At last a rod to handle the difficult conditions of the Great Lakes Steelheader. Made of IMX material the lightweight nature of this rod provides comfortable fishing from dark to dark without the need to ice your arm at day's end. You'll feel confident fishing even the lightest tippets, but will be able to " put the boots to 'em" to avoid the all too familiar logjam. Guide spacing and size has been meticulously designed to provide for efficient power and minimal freeze-up problems, even for the January die-hard steelheader."

The Low Down:
Leave it to Loomis to come out with the coolest rod we've seen in some time. The new STFR 1601 is thier answer to float fishing. This rod is a product of 2 years of hard testing, pro-staff input and many changes; looks like they've got it right!
