Flipping-punching are unique techniques that combines "power" fishing with a "finesse" approach. It's power because it requires heavy line, a powerful, yet sensitive rod and means horsing fish out of heavy cover, yet it's finesse in that it requires fishing in very close proximity to the fish... soft, quiet presentations for flipping... not so much for punching. Both require accuracy and precise lure control. The extra length of a flip-punch rod allows you to manage both techniques well. It can be a lot of fun and extremely effective, especially when the fish are tight to cover and not in the chasing mood. GL2 flip-punch rods feature split-grips with a 3" cork fighting-butt, a comfortable "hour glass" cork rear-grip, Fuji trigger reel seat and guides plus a 3" cork fore-grip. Put the power of G.Loomis engineering on your side... it's all about catching fish!!
