Default Need to new casting rods

just like its says i need a new rod for my new chronach that is on its way, I bought this reel for throwing plastics, o a sensitive rod is a must and nothing more than a medium. I have a few ideas but I was wondering what other bass fisherman think.

G-loomis GLX

The rod is more important than the reel!

Try one!

Try a Falcon Lowrider or a Cara while checking out the Loomis. I have used a medium Lowrider baitcasting rod and would recommend it. The Cara has better specs but I have not used it I have just looked at it in the stores. Loomis makes nice rods.

I fish in the local ABA Tournaments and had the good fortune of winning a couple of Airrus Rods. One of them is a 6' medium action with a fast tip and a solid backbone. I 've been using it fishing Senkos. Great sensitivity Rods aren't real pricey, but not cheap either. With shipping around $117.00 Airrus won the best of show 03 and 04 at the IBCA in Vegas. Shimano won it this year. I own a couple Loomis rods and Falcons. Both great rods. The Airrus rod is definitely comparable.
