Broke my IM6 on the RIsh River in Western Wisconsin on a 12 to 13" trout. Put on the best components possible a the time 10-15 years ago. Nickel silver rod seat, burlwood, silicon carbide guides (no snake eyes). I get it that Loomis quit making blanks, but now they say it will cost me $169.00 polus $20.00 handling to replace it with Pro4x. Basically half price for half the rod. I complained and after about 4 phone calls, the Manager calls me back to tell me the NEW story that is was not a defect, it was my fault. BS. I handle my rods with care and they could not claim there were scratches or other damage on the rod. Shimano (who bought them) simply does not want to honor the real warranty. So the NEW offer is $100 out my pocket when my IMX broke (interesting two of the supposed best rods in the industry) and it was replaced for the handling fee. I would rather build a Sage now. No more G Loomis rods ever.

For casting and reeling in soft plastics you should be fine spending half what you would on the G. Loomis...

My favorite is the loomis pr844s glx. Mainly use it with tubes ,etc. It works well with everything else to.
All my others work well but are not as versatile.
The cumara works well for a 200 dollar rod. Doesn't compare with the better rods.
My diawa's are their most sensitive but don't compare in sensitivity to loomis and st croix. The way they set a hook is amazing. Just lift and the fish is hooked. Not even close to being worth 505 dollars.
Personally I don't think a loomis is worth a 100 more than a st croix when comparing apples to apples.
I'm not too crazy about the 100$ loomis wants for their expidited service or whatever you call it.
For a waranty I think I would choose st croix.
There are so many variables in a rod it's hard to figure out exactly which one to get..
There are big differences from imx to glx in the same rod. It doesn't automatically mean the glx works better either.
I would take the legend elite and extremes over the avid.
For the most part I prefer st criox .
You really have to think about what you want that rod to do.
Fast tip, slower tip or moderate. What power. How light a lure you will throw or how heavy. Using cranks, jerkbaits, spinnerbaits, live bait, or plastics.
Luckily I was able to get my rods much cheaper than retail.

GL2 and IMX Series Rods are perfect for tossing and jigging soft plastics and small swimmers.
