I have a question about what new model of Loomis' Roaring River Series is most similar to their straight glx model...in particular I have the 14' 9/10 glx and I'm getting ready to purchase 2 other models, one stinger and one grease liner....just curious. While I'm at it, has anyone cast the 15' 7/8 grease line or the 12' 6" 8/9? These are the two I'm leaning towards for some summer fishing...any impressions?

Try the experts !

Flyjunky,
I`m not sure I can help with your question of old versus new, but I had the opportunity to cast the new 15`7/8 greasedline when Steve Choate brought them to Ireland in April to demonstrate.
I thought it was a fabulous rod, light, powerful, and a joy to fish with, the nicest rod I have tried in a long time.
If you drop Steve (lastcaststeve) a pm, I`m quite sure he would be delighted to assist with your original question, and give you very sound advise.
Best of luck,
Cascade.

Hi Jacob, What floating line do you use on the 12'6' GLX Stinger? I have one and need to figure out a line that I can use on it for underhand casting with a floating head.

Hi!

I only have the 15´ but i have tried the 12,6´ #9-10, #8-9 and 7-8

My favourite shootingheads floating is: guideline powertaper dual float and loop custom2 float. on the #9-10 you can easely have 32grams :whoa:

Hey Peter,
What lines were you throwing on the 7/8?

I used my old 32g shooting heads (Guideline PT's mostly) for one week with my Stinger and for my opinion it was too light for 12,6 9-10. I think couple of grams more could do better. With 32g you have to push for the distance and you'll have difficulties with bigger flies like Conehead Tubes.
