This rod may end up being our favorite overall rod of 2022.
Inshore fishing from boat or shore can be a multi species event. Having a rod that can handle all the inshore species the day throws at you can make or break your day. The new GCX Inshore combines everything we loved about the E6X with a new guide setup and reel seat. The new Zeus series SeaGuide Guide Train reduces tangles and reduces weight on the rod. A premium Fuji Reel Seat ensures that your reel stays locked in place throughout your day. One of our favorite improvements this year is a new type of resin on the rod the improved durability and impact resistance without increasing the overall weight of the rod.
If you haven't fished with GLoomis' Multi-Taper Design you are doing yourself a disservice. Rods with Multi-Taper technology remove material where its not needed and add it back where it's needed. This results in an extremely responsive rod with a ton of backbone.
Mike gives us a great video overview of the rod and how he plans on fishing it here.
